1st ever Westminster Agility REPEAT viewing Wed Feb 12!

I knew a few that were running and made into the finals. A good friend Soshana Dos ran last, so sad, her dog took a skid and probably pulled a muscle . Soshana looked so upset, can't blame her, I think she would have probably won the class.

The shepherd was a rocket, but almost got into it with the rottie at the finish line,,the rottie looked like he wanted a piece of something on every dog that passed him

Overall, the course was TOUGH, and honestly, I was kinda surprised at some of the dogs that MADE the finals..I know it's a long day, tough course.

I was happy to see the All American get a 2nd overall.. I LOVED Spanky the all american, would have liked to see that dog get it

That's my critique tho I do have other thoughts, but won't post them cause they are kinda negative)

I watched it. Fun to watch and Spanky was my favorite.
I heard it was a draw, to keep it more varied in breeds...otherwise it would have been all border collies competing.

What channel was that on? I would enjoy watching that instead searching through endless reality shows....

I loved it! The woman with the GSD is a good friend and we run 'against' her all the time at trials. Glad to see a GSD made it to the finals!

On again on Wednesday! A GSD made it to the finals and trial goes small dogs to large. Also went over 2 hours so if you are recording it keep that in mind

I watched it the first time around. I LOVED the rotty, fast, agile -- awesome run for a rotty, heads and tails over some of the slender breeds like the ridgeback who looked kind of like he didn't know what day it was, but yeah I noticed its owner holding it mouth when the poodle passed it, so when the GSD came off the course, I was not surprised at the fireworks.

I missed the final run of the day, where the AAD beat the rotty.

Unfortunately, my cable went out and I was not able to watch it. I have a friend who recorded it and I'm hoping to see it soon. But......... the course was tough?????? The championship course? This course:

It's a big loop with ONE backside!! NOT tough.


[EDIT]- I read this on a forum, which helps explain some of the performances: "The top 3 teams from the qualifiers moved onto the finals and then teams 4-10 were "selected" by the AKC committee to 'showcase' the variety of breeds competing in agility. They expressly wanted to showcase the non-typical agility breeds which is why many of the teams in the finals were not necessarily the "top teams" in the US. Weird to us agility handlers but their ratings and the media buzz for the event was huge - particularly for the mixed breeds! I saw it as community education event."
