Back from competing Röde Baronens Glory Days (Vilda) in obedience class 1.
A first prize and 173 points out of 200 possible.
Placed as number 3 out of 23 competitors (beaten by a BC + a Belgian shepherd). Well I managed to beat a few BC*s as well...
Considering that it was raining after more than 50 days without a drop, it was very good indeed. I was ill prepared and ended up doing it all in sandals and no raingear...

Grattis Ursula! Det är alltid lika roligt att höra om irländare som visar framfötterna inom lydnad...

Really Well Done, Ursula!! It sounds so great, and sure you have had a lot of work on the way to that lovely win! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Vilda looks so clever and proud with her cup, anyway. Lovely photo.

Thank you all for the congatulations!
Dont worry, you only have to look forwards to (hopefully) another two "Bragging Posts". The maximum "Bragging post" being the last one when I get to complete the 1:st level and gain the official obedience prefix. This time I shall NOT spend years working on making up another obedience champion and just be content with this level.

Next obedience competition will be mid august so until then Vilda and I shall work at becoming even better and hopefully beat a few more Border Collies in the process!
