Christmas Party

This weekend we had the North Shore Christmas Party on Saturday (along with the everlasting NZQA marking!) then Hibiscus Ribbon Trial on Sunday. 

The Christmas Party, as always, was lots of fun.  It started out with nibbles, and a dress up competition, before all the relays and games. 

Then Brody and I did a dancing demo (he was a bit manic, so we didnt get all the tricks), then Michelle and Moss did their routine (looking great as normal).
 Brody looked the part in his cute (but somewhat tight) elves costume. 

After our routines, Mark did another fantastic Magic show, then it was into the serious (or not) stuff... prizegiving. To our surprise, we actually won something! Mark and Sophie, and Brody and I tied to win the Elementary Obedience Trophy!  Very exciting. 

Then we had dinner, and a few more games - including a weave challenge, where they set up 48 weaves and timed how long it took to get each dog through, which was fun! Brody actually did pretty well, getting through then all to pop out two from the end, but he was a bit slow. The photo is of Rachel and Quest. 

Thanks to Debbie for some of the photos of Brody and I dancing, and Matilda for a dancing photo, and the photos of Mark and Brody and I with the trophy. 

On Sunday we had another great doggie day out, at Hibiscus Coast. We had a nice group of North Shoreans, including Emily, tanya, Lise and Roy, Debbie, Sarah and I. 

Its safe to say that all the dogs had fun... (i.e. Appollos), and a few were even quite well behaved. 

Tanya placed with Bindi in Elementary Obedience, in Specials Lise and Bessie came third, and Brody and I came 5th (just left turn issues). Brody and I also managed a 7th place in Starters for Agility. A fun, sun filled day.
