Mid Downs 2009

Mid Downs was our first "real" agility show of the year. I was looking forward to doing a low-key show to get Zen and I back in the zone.

Zen only had two runs but she did so well in both of them. Perfect sit stays on the line and really nice solid contacts; so I was a happy bunny! The agility course was really good for us as it was tight and had some difficulty. I saw the trophies and was really hoping for a placement so I could get one! To my surprise Zen came in 1st and won me a A-Frame trophy! I have been wanting a A-frame trophy since I moved here in 2001! There are some people (who have no taste) who made fun of my trophy but I LOVE it. What is really funny is this Aframe trophy is bigger than the Aframe trophy I won at the World Championships for the Silver medal team!

Here is Zen with her World Champs A-Frame Trophy.

And now in technicolour with her Supadogs A-frame trophy.

To make the day better, Zen's daughter Kizzy won her class (running in small over the same course as Zen)and won an A-Frame trophy also. This win also put her into Grade 6 so congratulations to Andy and Kizzy! Although Andy was risking me handing back his trophy as he didn't see the beauty in it that I did.

That's a superb trophy! Hopefully one day I will be able to win one like that.

The picture of Zen wrapping herself in the Union Jack and her world trophy is so beautiful!

Hello !

I can totally agree.
I also wanted such a trophy for a long time because one club has such nice trophys (A-frame, slalom, tire, wall ...) and it takes over 3 years to get an A-frame.

Regards !

Congratulations - you're getting quite the collection of little a-frames! I think this latest is very cool, BUT it clashes badly with Zen's pink coat :).

What a great way to return to agility - well done!
