May 18, 2014 Today Gigi earned her Rally Excellent title. She earned all 3 legs in one weekend. Not bad for an old girl! On to water work!
July 13, 2013 Today Gigi earned her 3rd RA leg to complete the requirements for her Rally Advanced title!! While she didn't earn a perfect score, her score of 95 was good enough to earn her a second place ribbon!! Now on to hopefully earning her water rescue dog and draft dog titles. Then it's on to Rally Excellent this winter!
June 30, 2013 To drive home the point that just because she is almost eight years old is no reason to retire from competition, Gigi earned her 2nd RA leg with ANOTHER perfect score of 100 and this time with a 3rd place finish out of a field of 8 competitors. Fingers crossed! She attempts her 3rd and final leg for the title on July 13 & 14.
June 29, 2013 Gigi made it very clear earlier this year that retirement was not at all to her liking. So I brought her out and starting practicing for her Rally Advanced title. Today at the West Bend show, Gigi earned her first Rally Advanced leg with a perfect score of 100! Her score also earned her a 4th place finish out of a total of 8 competitors. The other top 3 dogs also had perfect scores and the judge told us that each of the dog's course completion times (which are used as tie-breakers) were all within seconds of each other.
June 2, 2013 at the Fox River Valley KC Gabby went Best of Winners to earn her first 2 points! Thank you judge Walter Sommerfelt!
