Georgie got her last leg for her standard title this weekend. My mom now has a nice big ribbon because Louisville spends money on nice showy New Title ribbons haha.

Unfortunately she was the only one with a Q all weekend, although Payton would have a standard leg and a jumpers leg both except for mistakes I made, although he would have both open titles if it weren't for him being a naughty. I did a really late cross on the teeter our first standard run and he was like "wait, what?" and came off the teeter because he thought he was wrong. In jumpers I did a front cross at a weird spot that I was fairly certain would result in a dropped bar, because he's very very sensitive to my shoulder positioning and I turned my shoulders just right and he knocked the bar. Both runs were quite lovely otherwise. The rest of the runs were so-so. I still can't guarantee he'll do his weaves, nor his contacts, at a trial. I think I'm going to have to start entering FAST so I can work weaves and contacts over and over in a trial environment. We need more fun runs, too, but those are few and far between here.

So... yeah. Georgie had a pretty great weekend really. She did all her weaves in both JWW and STD both days she was entered. P not so much on the great weekend, but I know my biggest problem with him is that in my head he is more experienced than he actually is. It will come with time, I know. I started singing "Got My Mind Set On You" on Saturday, hahaha.
Auggie, OTOH, took some time to warm up but by his last run on Saturday he was really feeling it. No dropped bars but his speed on Friday wasn't so good, but on Saturday he started picking it up and running really nicely. It's been a year and a half since he did any trialing so can't really be too shocked. I pulled him on Sunday because the small dogs weren't running until past 6PM, and I really didn't want to stay that late and get home at 10-11PM on Sunday, so boo.

Interesting weekend I guess. Relatively drama free compared to past Louisville trials where I end up sitting outside the ring crying (although I did tear up after running Auggie, but it was happy tears.)
