The new battery thankfully did the trick and we had no hiccups.
Bo, Loki, Freya and Buddy were our newcomers, Bo although a little hesitant at first chased eventually. Freya a rescue was another a little hesitant at first but after spectating eventually chased with a lot of enthusiasm and both her and her pal (Loki - who took to it brilliantly) has handslips through the traps. Buddy got it first time of asking and grabbed the lure at the pickup like he'd done it a million times before. Pepe one of our regular pups was slipped through the traps to halfway and went great as was Keith's Jack (Almost Bobs x Adi Lin) he's a star in the making. Jess and Zuma both ran together, Jess receiving a start took advantage but Zuma really getting to grips with the traps now and really motoring towards the line, a great race with hardly anything separating the pair over the line. Lucy enjoyed her solo. Casper had a couple of trials setting up Piper, passing halfway and going away for a comfortable win. Jasper (his 2nd visit) had his first trial in company against Jess, still green but ran with enthusiasm, Jess is perfect for training these youngsters as she's so honest and totally lure focused, worth her weight in gold!
Everyone was covered in mud again, dogs and owners but all appeared to go home happy again.
Thanks as always for our gang of trusty volunteers, all getting stuck in with feeding and watering everyone and all aspects of setting up, organising and packing away.
