Beckett tries to take me out!!

I arrived back home on Thursday evening from visiting my parents down in New Brunswick. My sister and brother-in-law picked me up at the airport.  I was glad to get home to see Tucker and Beckett. I was off on Friday and I had planned to sleep in but the boys had better ideas and in any case there was the Royal wedding to watch on TV so we were up at 6am.  I stayed up all night to watch Charles and Diana's wedding but I'm not as young as I once was.

After watching the wedding, I took the dogs for a walk, checked the mail that had built up for a week, finished unpacking and starting packing to head to Kingston for an agility trial.  We headed out to Kingston after lunch. We went to the soccer dome to set up, watch some friends runs and went out to dinner with a couple friends before heading to my youngest sister's place.

Beckett was in four runs this weekend; a starter jumpers, a starter snooker, an advanced standard and his first Steeplechase.  We only got one qualifying score in the Snooker but I was very happy with how he ran this weekend.  He made all of his contacts but we have to work on weave entries at speed as I don't think he made one of them.

With the Starters Snooker Q, Beckett now only needs one more Starters Jumpers qualifying score for his Starter Games Dog of Canada title, perhaps next weekend at Dream Fields.  We were so hoping for a nice red and gold title ribbon from Morning Star but another blue and white one from Dream Fields will be nice too. 

I'm not sure but I think Beckett was out to get me this weekend. He nearly took me out at the knees in the Jumpers run and then tried to give me a heart attack in Snooker. He sure is exciting to run that's for sure. :-)


  1. I loved watching your runs, and I'm sure you'll be getting that title soon. Beckett is going to be a show stopper.

  2. Thanks Sara. I really lucked in with Beckett, considering I fell in love with him from web site picture, never asked around about the breeder or even asked the breeder about his pedigree.

  3. He's doing great Helen! Haven't seen him in such a long time.
