I'm Speechless!

Well almost...Peyton got his first Q today! Better yet, Peyton got *three* Q's today along with a first and second place! Woot! :)

He did awesome! And if I wasn't still in total shock (and very tired), I would probably be in tears...I'm so proud of my spotty boy. I couldn't have asked for more from him and he totally exceeded my expectations. Here's a little recap...

Novice Jumpers: A little wild off the start, but I got him back and had I not set him up really badly for a jump he might have even Q'd.



Novice Weavers: Peyton bypassed the first set of weaves coming out of the opening tunnel, but I got him back and he rocked the rest of the course. A very nice run with a Q and second place!



Novice Regular Round 1: A few wild moments - he didn't stop for his first a-frame contact, but he nailed the next two. We ended up with a Q and still a few seconds under time despite the extra running around.



Novice Regular Round 2: A perfect run for spotty boy - a Q and first place! Awesome contacts and weaves. Wow. Wow. Wow.



Needless to say I am on cloud 9 at the moment! It was a great day and we had a great time hanging out with our friends. I think all of the SOTC dogs did great and I am so appreciative of all of the kind words and support. I was so worried the Peyton might run out of the ring near the end since the jumps were so close so I had asked some friends to hang out there, but I don't think he even thought about it!

Indy also had a great day! I ended running her in three classes - our only Q was in elite jumpers, but overall she ran fast and happy - just what I was hoping for!



Again, I can't get over how great Peyton did today. I'm not sure what tomorrow will be like, but at this point - I don't care! Hopefully we'll have as much fun as we did today...any Q's would be icing on the cake! :)
