First Utility leg!
After numerous (15+) tries, I finally got my first leg in Utility. We were the only one to qualify in Utility A. So exciting!

I'm off to 4 trials next month and hope to finish the title!

There's my boy Timber.........sitting like a goof!

Thank you!!! I appreciate the kind words!

A few years ago, I was in that same park doing rally. I remember watching Shyne in the Utility ring. I was amazed! I'm a newbie and had a CD and Rally Advanced title and I just couldn't imagine myself doing that.

After she was out of the ring, we were talking and I told her that I'd never get that far. She said, "Don't sell yourself short. Just stick with it and you'll get there." Those words have stuck in my head and I continued on. We got our RAE and a CDX and I've been training the Utility exercises for two years. I still can't believe I'm doing this! It has been a wonderful journey and thank you, Shyne, for being an inspiration to me!

Thank you so much for the lovely post - what a nice way to start the day. :)

You're absolutely welcome for the encouragement. You and Timber are an awesome team and I'm so happy for you!

There's nothing like that first utility Q! :congratulations:
