Pretty fantastic weekend!

Well this weekend started out pretty icky. Rain, a little wind, cold, and a VERY early morning on Saturday to make our way to Westminster for The CCC. The Colorado Canine Challenge!! It's a UFO Major tournament, which we can't miss just because of a little rain!

I was worried about slippage and was nervous about the dogs playing, but they did great! No problems with the rain, at all. Other than when they came in from running they were shaking because it was so cold. I tried to dry them off as much as possible in between rounds.

Kipp and I even had to stop just before our 2nd round because of lightning!! A little scary, right?! But that didn't stop us from putting up a 14pt round which put us in 1st place for the intermediate division!
Our first GOLD in a major tournament. Very, very cool.
Jeff and Kipp put up some big numbers in the novice division to take GOLD there too. What a good boy!! (Rescues ROCK!!!)

Rockstar and I even put up our best numbers ever this weekend too. She rocked a 9 in her first round. She's come such a long way from where she was a year ago and I couldn't be more excited. She is tracking like a mad woman and catching some crazy throws. :)
Rockstar and I took SILVER in novice this weekend!


And for the highlight of my weekend..... I was able to watch someone who I look up to on so many levels. Roo Yori and his amazing rescue dog Wallace drove in from Minnesota for this tourny and rocked. They took home Bronze in the Open FS division, and they were so much fun to watch!! Also please visit Bad Rap. Those are two amazing websites fighting for something they strongly believe in. And having fun while doing it. Check 'em out!
