|Tika after a moderate workout in the yard|
Out of 10 runs, counting that crashed one, she knocked one bar in each of 7 runs. Not always the first one, not always on a turn. Garrill said that on one fairly straight run I turned my head (and maybe shoulders) to look where I was going next just as she went over a jump and she knocked that one.
But some of the classes were strategy games where the knocked bar was just missed points, and some classes (as in NADAC std) you can get a half Q with a knocked bar, so she Qed 8 out of 10 classes, and took 1st or 2nd in 9 classes out of about 10-15 dogs--including 1st place in her first Standard run at Level 5 (highest you can go).
I'm very happy with her progress and performance and I got a lot of compliments on several of her runs.
