Default 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!
