Tika's Second Competition

Backfill: 11/10/02 Wow, she hauls butt! We didn't do as well at Turlock as we did at West Valley--she did one of the things I had expected before, which is to go past a couple or 3 jumps and one tunnel. On the other hand, I *know* I got cocky & didn't handle every obstacle as carefully as I did down in L.A. I didn't turn her around to go back & take the ones she missed--no point, I'd rather have her learn to run & have fun--so she probably might have been a second or so slower to go thru instead of past a tunnel & over instead of past a couple of jumps.

BUT she was almost 2 secs faster than the fastest Level 1 or 2 dog on that course--and her rate was 5.75 yps! Holy cow. Yikes.

I guess this is why I want a dog with this much energy and drive. MAN, that's fun.
