C-side.....

Well we've done it.... Hex's first run in public. I have to say I felt so scarred!!!!
Hex was brill, we got E'd but it was very much my fault... The two problems we had wouldn't have occurred had I used my "Steady", but honestly I was so nervous I panicked and forgot. He sent on nicely and even put in a bounce or two. Hex was completely unfazed, and tried to go and set up for a second turn.

After that we did a tricky 5-7 agility course with the other 4, Paula ran Shy as I was too tiered after a very late night before!!!!!!!

Mac was winning the agility, first I ran Link (Mr no clears!) and surprise, surprise he did a stonking clear and went into second OMG!!!! Then I ran Herbie, and I have to admit right up to the line I thought I would throw him back and "go" for it, but luckily I found my sensible head and stopped all his contacts, he was fantastic, really listening which was great and he went into second place, lastly I ran Stihl (as jay is still doing building stuff) She was amazing, she is soooo fast, how I would love to run her normally, she did an amazing run knocking a whole second off Herbie and only loosing out to Mac and Spud ( a grade 7 dog) by 0.01 of a sec!!!! She flew! So at the end we had 2nd, 3rd and 4th and the people in 1st and 5th were also Anju agility members, so all in all a good day!

So nothing with Hex now 'till Dec when I have a WAG show oh unless I run him at our Anju show on the 30th?

Any way thank you to Paula for Videoing Hex at C-Side (the video went on to stand by soshe missed the first jump, but you'll get the jist!!!!....
