There are more FastCAT runs for me in the books now after the last weekend. Last summer I earned my BCAT Title and now I am almost at my DCAT Title, which is my goal for 2022. Since I don’t travel well, Mom is trying to enter me in all the local ones which means an hour or so from our house. This weekend was in Cambridge at the same place we ran back in June.
As I said, I don’t like the car. Mom brought Nelson along to keep me company but he was not very thrilled. Most of the way to and from my trials, I sat on top of him. It is what I do when I get nervous in the car. He survived and said he doesn’t want to travel with me anymore. Normally each dog has their own side of the backseat, but I prefer to be with the other dog on their side.
Each day I had two runs. I started my weekend needing eighty two points for my DCAT Title. Saturday I ran fairly slow. We don’t know why, but the weather was really damp and wet. It wasn’t the kind of weather that makes me want to run. Still I earned two Q’s and some points towards me title goal.
Sunday my FastCAT runs were much better. I was back to my old time on the first one of the day and ran two seconds faster on my second run! See how happy it makes me feel?
I Q’d in all four runs and am now just twenty points/two runs, short of my goal. Mom has me entered in FastCAT again the first weekend of October. Barring any unforeseen issues, I should be able to wrap it all up then. I don’t plan on getting my FCAT as it is a lot of points and if I don’t travel, it would take me forever. I’m happy getting my DCAT and stopping there.
PS: Don’t tell Madison, but I am ahead of her in our breed standings right now. We are not going to do the trip to Nationals this year, but if we did, she would be out and I would be in! Amazing! There are only four dogs ranked and three of them are our family! Next year Nelson can join in the fun.
My GBGV Life is happy, so we’re joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday!
