This past weekend Boomer & Skaya and their erstwhile handler, have been attending a four trial weekend at Latigo Trails Equestrian Center. Our hometown Obedience & Rally Trials! At the first Rally Trial on Saturday morning, Ch Oxota RiverRun Tangmalangaloo Avalon, JC, CGC (AKA da Boom) was FIRST in his Rally Novice B class under judge Bonnie Lee with a score of 85! For his first time in the Rally ring? YAHOO! Skaya AKA (Avalon Ww Darkskaya Dare, SC, CGC (major ptd CH & FCh) the morning trial was less than stellar and she DNQ. At Saturday’s second trial, Boomer was again FIRST in his Rally Novice B class with a score of 93 under judge Nancy Grimm! Skaya’s second time in the ring she QUALIFIED with a 75, and the judge told me I cost her 10 points by finishing her the wrong direction on the last station! ARRGH! Handler error. However, her score was good enough for third place! Today, at the Pikes Peak Obedience Club Trials… Boomer is now known as: CH Oxota RiverRun Tangmalangaloo Avalon, JC, CGC, RN!!!! He completed his Rally Novice Title with another FIRST place and a score of 82!! Skaya garnered her second leg at the morning trial with a third place and score of 72 and at the afternoon trial completed her Tally Novice title with a 73!!! She is now Avalon Ww Darkskaya Dare, SC, CGC, RN (major ptd CH & FCh)!!!!! So proud of my Borzoi! Special thank you to Linda Pocurull who is our training buddy extraordinaire!!! All of advice, friendship and encouragement are priceless! What a weekend!
So proud to introduce my Boomer as a new AKC Champion! He did it in style with two 4 point back-to-back Major wins at the Rocky Mountain Hound Association Dog Shows!
