Little Surfer Girl

April 15, 2012

Despite the rain and wind on Friday, yesterday was clear for Day 1 of the Southern California All-Corgi Herding Trials.  Ellen has no cell service up on the mountain at Judy’s ranch (host location for the trials).  So on her way down the mountain, Ellen called to let me know that our Nola had earned her first HT leg WITH FLYING COLORS.  I’m not sure if that’s relative or if she did a really super duper job.  There is video which will be downloaded when the herding folks are home.  I’ll post Nola’s runs and you can join me in learning the meaning of  “with flying colors”.  I’m very proud of the little girl and grateful to Ellen who has been working with her since last summer.  Because I represent someone behind whom to hide, I’ve been banished from herding practice and not seen Nola herd for the past few months.

Ellen’s Cardi Banjo earned his first HSA leg with a 95.5 and a High In Trial!  Pretty fabulous work, I’d say!

Fingers crossed for today’s runs.

    So proud of Naughty Nola–who evidently wasn’t NAUGHTY at all!

    Congrats to Ellen and her crew and, of course, Naughty Nola! Waiting to hear she has her HT!
