Ember and Maximum both dogs ran only on Saturday, good thing because the owner injured her knee severely when they ran way to fast on that carpet. Ember almost Q'd her Excellent A JWW run, but popped out of the weaves. The run was so fast I think that was when the knee injury happened. Maximum Q'd 2nd placed both runs giving him another double Q. Very proud of both of them. With 300 people watching, it was all business with both of my dogs when I said "sit say". I know Max was saying to me "thanks for letting me run agility in the house"
