I will save Stout's brag for Thursday (mostly because I forgot to scan the rally map...) and brag on Porter first.
After not doing any AKC trials since very early November, Port did fantastic! He was a little rusty in our first run of the weekend, totally plowing into the panel jump:
But he followed that up with an amazing jumpers run, that I did not get on video :( I don't even remember any of the course, but I do remember thinking that it just felt good. Fluid, easy, and in sync.
After a very long wait Sunday (it started tall to small), Porter earned his 11th QQ! I am still shocked and amazed every time we do it. Hell, I'm still shocked & amazed every time he gets his weave poles :)
We even had a small Cardigan gathering at the trial: Dina & Moira and Michele & Reva were also there. It's not very often that Porter is not the only cardi running at a trial!
