What a great weekend. The weather was great, until it rained all morning on Sunday. The tracks were good and the dogs were pumped.
I’ve been having trouble with the boys stopping at the merest hint of a puddle. On Saturday morning it was cold and dry but I knew there was water right across the track about half way up the start straight and wasn’t confident about getting the boys across it. When we got there I ask Canto to go “on by” and waited to see what would happen. To my delight he took a moment and then picked a good line taking Angus with him.
Come Sunday the rain had set in and the tracks were awash so I again asked Canto to take us through and with each water hazard his confidence grew, picking better lines with increasing surety. Angus responded to Canto’s lead sticking with him the whole way. By the time I crossed the the finish line I was so proud of my boys.
