Smooth Collie and ASCA Rally

Well, I took Levi and Tatum to Utah’s first ASCA Rally trial today. We had a lot of fun! And I have to say I’m so very impressed with Tatum! She did such a good job! Here is the video of her:

My collie girl, coming from a hoarder’s back yard, horribly bred, very little people contact when she was young, and what she got was bad. So even though she’s not looking up at me the whole time, or completely on a close heel… she’s sticking with me, doing all her sits and downs and stands, and I’m so proud of her! She didn’t Q… she stood up on her honor down. But that’s okay, if she would have Q’d she would have gotten a 189, that’s a pretty good score!

And here is Levi, my old man. Levi used to be my main competition dog. But now he’s 10 and a half years old, his back end isn’t as strong as it used to be, and he’s mostly retired. But I thought I’d put him in the Novice ASCA Rally to see how he did. He did great!

He had a great time doing something with his Mom again. He got a 195, which is really good! Out of 200. He’s a good boy. I love working with him again. Breaks my heart that he is old now. Ugh.

I’ll take both Tatum and Levi back tomorrow. Hopefully Tatum will stay in the honor stay and get a Q. I’ll be proud of her either way! I have some sardine brownies for her too, and she loves those fishes!

  1. FANTASTIC, great job! I love you posted video, I want to do rally and I have only seen one or two trials so I love watching it. Good luck tomorrow!!!

  2. Tatum did really well. I can’t wait to hear how she does today! It’s going to be so much fun having she and Dare in Rally Novice together again in Idaho Falls.

    And as for Levi, it was so nice to have him there with us again. I’ve missed having his silly commentary on the sidelines.

    Hope you get video today. Sorry we won’t be there in person to see them both.
