Freddie and I went to the Hare n Hounds Christmas Show yesterday, our last show of the year. Quite a few hadn't made it because of the snow, but there was still a good turn out.
Freddie's first run (graded 1-2 agility) had both me and the judge stood laughing in the ring. I was a little worried as there was a brush fence and a wall, both of which Freddie hadn't seen before, so maybe I was a little distracted because after the first 2 fences Freddie decided just to do his own thing - went for wander through the tunnel and over a fence or two before coming back to me! But once he was concentrating he did the rest of the course fine including jumping the brush and the wall without hesitating.
We picked up another couple of E's, but close ones with only small mistakes. Then in graded 1-3 jumping he did a fabulous clear round. It wasn't an easy course but Fred really concentrated and he was fast too! His clear round earned 2nd place, our best yet, and only 1.5 seconds slower than the winner! Well done Freddie Bear.
