Pembroke County Show

Sorry guys there are no pictures for this one, everyone was too wet to be bothered with a camera! Pembroke show is our local show and up until this year the agility part was run by our club, but Mike has finally relinquished responsibility to another club, which means that Cantref Gwaelodd members were free to enjoy the rest of the show instead of being tied to ring party duty. It is a 3 day show and we would normally camp there for the 3 days, but as I am dependant on the goodwill of friends to get there this year we were only there for the day yesterday,( thank you Beryl and Tansy).
As I said, the weather was slightly damp (but not as damp as today!). We had 4 runs, 2 agility and 2 jumping. The first was an agility, after getting E'd on Saturday for going on the A frame at the wrong time Finn decided he shouldn't go on it at all in this class! We were E'd for 3 refusals. the second class was the other agility class and we did slightly better, only having 2 refusals due to over enthusiasm and lack of concentration. The first jumping class we had 4 poles down, but I was really pleased with him as I had the feeling we were working together. The last class, the ABC (anything but a collie), which has always been the one I really want to do well in was a total disaster and it was all my fault. Finn was running really well, but something pulled in my leg and I couldn't run properly so I wasn't in the right place at the right time and we got E'd for backjumping, sorry Finn.
As it was raining quite hard by now we decided to go straight home after Beryl had finished her runs and we were back by 5o'clock! Beryl was very pleased with Tansy as she had a clear round well within the coarse time although unfortunately not in the places. Well done Tansy.

Hi Finn - sounds like fun! Sorry to hear about your leg - we think you should have got EXTRA points for backjumping, not less!! But the main thing is you had fun - brilliant! And well done Tansy - clear round, that's superb! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.
