|UKC CH Patuxent's Black Tie Affair RN AX AXJ NF CL1|
We walked into the weekend needing 50 breed points, and 1 win with competition. Knight walked away with 50 points and 2 more wins with competition. We didn't have any breed competition, but there were 5 breeds in the companion group ring. That means Knight's Group 4th and Group 3rd placements from Sunday counted as wins with competition.
UKC certainly is quite the confidence booster, for both of us. The judges have all been very friendly, Knight shamelessly did a little happy dance for both of them when he received his ribbons.
We're taking a break from Conformation like things next weekend, and will be doing a one day AKC Agility trial! As much as conformation is starting to grow on me, I'm itching to get back in the agility ring. Our last trial was way back in... March I think? Way too long ago! That's for sure!
In order to keep my sanity, I'm forcing myself to stick to 1 day trials and shows for the majority of this first semester. I don't want to completely burn myself out haha. Still trying to keep things pretty balanced, each day of agility is matched with 1 day of conformation in the month. Until Miss Mia has her AKC CH I'm going to try to keep it up. It certainly can't hurt to keep my face familiar in the conformation scene.
