This weekend we travelled out to Limestone, TN for AKC lure coursing trials. My goal going into the weekend was to get Json qualified for the NLCC later this year. In order to qualify, Json needed 3pts (accrued in any combination of points).
On Saturday Json ran beautifully on a very long course (>930 yards) and won the Open stake for a 3pt major (qualifying him for the NLCC!)! Then Json went on to win Best of Breed in a run off with our friend Kayla (Ianthe Hounds) and her wire girl Azula! Winning BOB took his 3pt major and made it a 5pt major! Fable ran well as well and took 4th place after a 2/3/4/5 place run off. Fable couldn't quite resist the urge to show off some of his creativity in his coursing!
On Sunday Json ran beautifully again, though a touch tired still from the day before. Json managed to win the Open stake again for another 3pt major! This means he now has both of his majors needed for his AKC Field Championship! By successfully completing his fourth trial Json also earned his Senior Courser (SC) title! Fable ran well again, and did his best to contain his creativity. He placed 3rd today in the Specials stake. Fable now has 17pts towards his LCX and 18 legs towards his MC title! Json didn't win breed today, but he was pretty tired after this weekend.
I'm so proud of both of my boys this weekend!
