One of the most exciting agility happenings in Norway during the year is the Norwegian Open! This year it was arranged right after the World Championship in Sweden, therefore many competitors from all over the world took the trip to Kongsvingerhallen
and the moose hunt at NO. It is well known that the most wanted price at NO is the moose-teddybears you get if you win, or get a placement near the top.
NO for us is maybe the greatest competition we can participate at. Artificial
grass is what my girls like to run on the most, and the courses and judges we get at the competition is top notch. To run Open runs with 200-300 other large dogs, including world champions and "celebrities" in the agility world is a feeling you can't get tired
This year I got to run with both Acme and Blizz. Acme took care of all open runs Friday including all official runs Saturday and Sunday. While Blizz got to run official runs Saturday and Sunday. The feeling we ran with this
weekend is beyond any other competition we have run together as a team. The flow we managed to chare, and the elements we conquered together I am very proud of.
Blizz ran two clean runs, both in Agility (she is now finally ready
for grade 2), one jumping run with only one bar down, and one disqualified run (but a very nice disq). Acme ran one clean run and the rest was with only some bars down.
The most amazing feeling was standing on the FIRST and SECOND
place in the same agility run with both of my girls!! If you want to see our runs on video, you can find them on youtube ;)
