This was our Cocker Nationals weekend, with four days of agility. I had written off any chance of my Hunter MACHing there as he needed 4 QQs, and he has never done more than 2 in a row.
Well I was wrong.
Hunter had a perfect weekend for double QQs 17, 18, 19 and 20. That's eight clean runs in a row, most of which were placements, finishing on a first in Standard and a third in Jumpers.
So he is now
MACH CH Skyrocket's Upland Special SH MX MXJ AD NGC NAC NJC AOM - and I think he now has all his points towards MACH2.
AND
His black brother Raven, Can. CH. Skyrocket's Northern Knight Can UD SH Took high in trial both days of obedience with a 197. This is his owner's Bev's first obedience dog (although she politely showed him in Nov B)!

AND
His buff brother Rudy Ch Skyrocket's wings of Gold took Best in Feild Class! And his puppies placed in futurity...
AND
My Dice, Skyrocket's Spot On or Snakeyes AX AXJ got her first QQ at a year and 9 months..(We couldn't seem to get a standard and jumpers run on the same day!)
AND
Kizzi, My beezer finished her AX and AXJ making her the highest titled agiltiy Ibizan hound in America.
(And was a great ambassador for the sport with some spectators...)

Whew!
Won't have a weekend like that for a while!

Thanks for the congrats everbody! Yeah, we are already planning the MACH party.
It was funny - I thought I would be nervous on his MACH run, but I just walked out, took a deep breath, looked at him and knew we could do it.

We were so amazingly together all weekend - that's what it's all about...
