Bronze in the Finnish Championships 2017
Wii returned to the agility trials the last weekend of May, after having her puppies. She competed in Jakobstad and in Pietarssari. She won three of the races, but the feeling and the speed was not the best. Neither for me or Wii. Anyhow, last weekend we headed to Lappeenranta and the Finnish Championships with no higher hopes.
On friday evening we took part in a warmup jump competition. Wii did white an ok run and surprised me with a second place out of 106 dogs! That gave some hopes for the weekend.
On saturday we competed for The Finnish poodle club in the Finnish Championships for teams. It was quite a difficult tracka and unfortunate our team was already disqualified when Wii entered the track. I had woken up without a voice myself that morning, so decided to participate and train some weaves and contacts. Wii did a good race with faults and the secon fastest time out of more than 260 dogs. Wow!
On sunday it was time for the individual Championships. My cold was really bad and my feeling was not the best. The track had a really difficult part where many dogs disqualified. I decided to go a bit safe on that spot. Wii decided to go even safer and took an extra turn. We lost some time, but made a clear rund. We ended up on 11th place after the qualification jump race. in the finals Wii did a really good run with no faults. Now it was just to wait and see how the last ten dogs were going to perform. Several of them did really good runs, but when the final results came it showed out that Wii had climbed from 11th to 3rd place. Yeah, bronze to Wii in the Finnish Championships. Super Mama! 🙂
