Sigh--the follow-up

SUMMARY: Comparisons
See, Boost was going to be my premier agility dog. No more rescues, no more dogs starting off in agility as an adult already. Bought her from a breeder with great parents (all of whom I knew already), got her as a puppy, did everything right from the beginning. Right?

Anyway, it's hard not to compare.

In the 6 trials after Tika's 6th birthday, she Qed in 28 of 63 runs, for a 44% Q rate. That was fairly well balanced--

Gamblers: 4
Jumpers: 5
Relay: 4
Snooker: 3 Super-Qs, 2 regular Qs
Standard: 5

Team Gamblers: 2**
Team Snooker: 1**
Team: 2

Steeplechase: 1
Grand Prix: 2

In the 6 trials after Boost's 6th birthday, she Qed 15 out of 72 runs, for a 21% Q rate. And not quite so balanced:

Gamblers: 2
Jumpers: 0
Snooker: 0 Super-Qs, 3 regular Qs
Relay: 4
Standard: 2

Team Gamblers: 1
Team Jumpers: 1
Team: 2

Steeplechase: 0
Grand Prix: 0

**NOTE: This was before individual team events were Qable. But given that she was 2nd or 3rd out of 20 to 40 dogs, I'd say those would safely have been Qs.

  1. :) I think it's the same with getting rescues...you either get a JoJo or you get a Gracie (the zoomie queen :).
