I had the opportunity to run 3 dogs in the classic Vivod trial up in the North of Wales this weekend. The setting is spectacular and the event historic; it's one of the absolute oldest sheepdog trials, having been organised for well over 125 years.
All my dogs must have felt what an honour and special occasion this was, and ran like dreams. Jim won the qualifier in his field and Nell came second in hers, just 1/2 point after the winner, meaning both were in the final! And then our young Maya, just shy of three years old, decided that she didn't want to be left behind, so did a fantastic run as well, clinching one more of the spots in the final! One of those fantastic days when all comes together just right. ^_^
