Yankee Golden Retriever Club - August 27th, 2011

The August edition of Yankee Golden Retriever Club's agility season was shortened to one day due to the impending arrival (and effects) of Hurricane Irene. So a reasonably long trek for a one day of agility. This weekend's judge was Terri Campbell - who I'm sure is currently stuck in a NH hotel riding out Irene hoping her afternoon flight tomorrow isn't canceled.

Teller had a mixed bag - a ten point JWW run in the AM and one mistake short of a standard leg when he failed to turn tightly enough in the chute to come around to the panel. We got home safe Saturday afternoon in time to stow our gear and re-check our tropical storm preparations.There's always another agility weekend!

On a random note, on my way to the show site on Saturday AM (6am) I saw a flock of pelicans crossing I93 just north of Salem NH. First, I don't think I've ever seen a flock of pelicans - second, it was a little scary at how  low a flock of pelicans fly and third, always amazing to see animals reacting to changing weather conditions WAY before humans.
