Cherry Blossom

Rugby has hit a rough patch. I'm not happy about it, but at least he waited until his UD was finished to do it. It started at the Cherry Blossom cluster. He was entered Saturday the 23rd and Sunday the 24th. This was his first time entered in both Utility B and Open B.

Saturday he qualified in Utility with a score of 194.

Then he went into Open and did a Sit-On-Recall. Really? He decided to mess up his favorite exercise?

No UDX leg for us, but we were hopeful for Sunday. Unfortunately, Margot called it. Rugby "doesn't do bars on Sundays." Besides doing terrible go-outs and missing the bar jump completely, I felt like I was in the ring by myself. Rugby was only giving me enough attention to do his job and nothing more. We didn't show in Open.

It was quite a depressing weekend.


  1. I'm sorry it was such a disappointing weekend for you! I've been there and it sucks. Hopefully it's a temporary thing!

  2. I'm sorry it didn't turn out the way you anted it to be. Don't be too upset. There are many more competitions to come. He will do better I am sure.

  3. Rugby did soooo well in his first trip into the Utility B ring, though! He's still a young boy, and he just needs to grow up a little. I still love watching him work!
