Beckett was entered in five events, two Standards, one Gamblers, one Steeplechase and one Jumpers. In his first Standard, Beckett had two refusals, missed his weaves and had an off course which led to an elimination. In Gamblers, our opening was nice and we got 33 opening points, you need 28 points in Masters Gamblers to Q so we were all right there. The mini gamble was tunnel, A-frame, tunnel layered with the weaves. The A-frame is kind of our nemesis right now so we didn't try it as a mini just ran the obstacles. We didn't get the main gamble which was tunnel, teeter, tire, jump; again the tunnel went under the dog walk and you had to turn the dog nearly180 degrees back onto the teeter which was just past the entry of the dog walk. I hesitated as I didn't want to turn Beckett too soon and he missed the teeter and once he came out too far, I couldn't get him back. Our Steeplechase was nice but two A-frames caused us to be over time. Jumpers at the end of a long day was kind of a train wreck but he did do some parts of it very nicely.

I'm very happy with Beckett, he loves to play agility and he's great fun to run. And he does make me run.
