Seri got her Gamblers Master in the mail. I thought she only had like 3 legs in Gamblers. It's the only game she's actually in Masters for because I stopped entering the rest of them after she got her single leg in each in Advanced. She needs one more Standard to finish her AAD. I didn't even enter it this weekend. When I go to USDAA anymore, I am focused on Tournaments, and since those are usually 1 or 2 runs a day, I budget the rest of what the dog runs. Seri has had a bunch of 1-fault Adv Std runs this year, so we just haven't finished. They weren't all one bar either, we had a missed up contact on the see-saw, a table where an elbow popped up that I didn't see (and couldn't hear the stopped count over her barking), a broken pull-apart tire, and a table she slid off. . . Anyway I don't really care. My goal has been, and will continue to be, National level competition (and beyond!), and so I don't really care if she ever gets ADCH-Gold or makes Top Ten or whatever. Drifter doesn't even have a Bronze LAA yet (I never enter Pairs). I am happy with the way I enter trials right now, enough to qualify for both big National events I like to attend, and maybe qualify for a World Team along the way.
Northeast Regional is this weekend. Team is tomorrow, but I already have Team Q's, and I didn't know how hot it was going to be (hot!), so I didn't enter it. I will head up tomorrow evening and stay in my mother's RV overnight, and we are only running Gamblers, GP, and Steeplechase. An easy day, although that's 9 runs with the 3 dogs. Hopefully we'll get some byes into semi-finals of some classes. And what we don't get, I don't really care, i will just run quarterfinals at Cynosports. The rest of my year is dedicated to AKC and Seri.
