Between last night and today we had 8 runs. Luna 'qualified' in 5 of those runs. That means the run was clean with no faults, and was under the allowable time. In one of the other runs, she didn't qualify, but still came in first place in her group. To qualify is more important than a placement ribbon. It is the qualifying runs that allow you to advance into the more difficult divisions. The red and white rosettes are the qualifying ribbons. The plain red one is her first place ribbon. The turquoise ribbon is because she received enough qualifying runs of a certain type, to move her up to the next division. Clear as mud I know.
But for the Lunatic, this was probably the best trial she has ever had. Some of the runs were a bit wild and a lot 'not pretty', but what counts in the end was that she got around the course clear and under time. I don't have any video, just these sad looking pictures. Because I don't bother to keep the ribbons, I just 'borrowed' them to take this photo, which was on a relatively clean looking table under the grandstand next to where her crate was. Then the ribbons were put back and we went home without them.
I tried hard to make her look alert and intelligent, but no matter how many exciting things I talked about...
She found it all verrrrry boring
And figured she'd just take a nap until I was done
