ASCA 2008 Nationals Las Vegas, NV.
A dream come true.
My goal when I got treasure was to go to the Nationals and compete in MVA.
I wanted to do it all and I started training her at 8 weeks old.
at 2 1/2 years old we went to the Nationals.
What a ride it was at the ASCA Nationals. After 11 days we are home... We just had a blast, enjoyed every minute of the Show. Starting with Agility. Going on to obedience. Then herding sheep and ducks. Including all the pre shows and the National show competing in confomation. Finally competing for MVA using all of the combined scores in every area to compete for MVA.
I Want to thank all those who made this dream possible.

MVA: Qualifying in Agility , conformation.
Not qualifying herding , obedience.
We unfortunately did not qualify for MVA but we came close.

She really delivered only missing 2 out of all of her runs all week in the pre-show and the National show.
Obedience: competed well but did not qualify .. But sadly we went down on our long sit.
Conformation for MVA : Qualified with a high score of 97.5 well done for a girl completely out of coat.
