Sophie finishes her NAJ

We've had lovely weather the entire month of August here in the Garden State... then September rolls in and the heat and humidity are back! Despite the disgusting weather, we trialed Sunday in agility at the Princeton Dog Training Club trial, held in Jamesburg, NJ.

Sophie ran her first Open Standard Course and impersonated a bird - HUGE fly-off on the teeter! It was humorous, and so unsafe! NQ for Standard. We waited around for hours and finally came the Novice Jumpers run. She did an awesome job on a very friendly course. Perfect score, 19.77 seconds - which works out to be 4+ yards per second. Sophie came in 2nd to a wicked fast Border Collie who spanked her by almost 4 seconds!

So now its on to Open in the Jumpers ring - first run will be at our National - one week from now in the lovely little state of Rhode Island :)

I just love agility ribbons - they always give such nice rosettes!
