Actually it was our 4th trial, but the first one we got a Q in standard at (we have Q's in some of the games, like Colors and Wildcard), but nothing in Standard! At our first couple trials she totally would not get up on the A-Frame or Dog walk (new place I guess) and at the last one *I* screwed up and so we lost the Q. This time we both did well enough to get it!

I think that Cool Coat you're recommending is the one they sell on Clean Run? It looks good so I'll definitely check it out! I feel like she needs SOMETHING to keep her cooler in this weather. In the winter she's the dog who is fine with nothing on while the rest all shiver in their big heavy coats, but the summer she's the one who's dragging.

Using it dry, Meg's back will feel cool under it even if we can't find shade right by the ingate. I keep it on her until the dog ahead of us is on course. When it is really hot, I dunk it in water and keep it in the cooler.
Thanks for the info!

That is the coat I use for Mira (big black dog + intense sun = oven) and it makes a huge difference and is very carefree for me.

Mira as an 11mo wearing her Saratoga coat in near-100 temps at the 2010 FCRSA specialty (cell phone pic, forgive the quality lol)
