Jacqui Gets Her TD

by Alyson Fuge


Jacqui – Cross Creek What’s a Jacaranda - passed her TD in Virginia at Oatlands Plantation on a crispy Sunday morning in December.

She put her head down and took off as though she had been doing this all her life. A couple of turns I hesitated at because I didn’t know at the time that the judges had decided to leave in the ground flags from Verizon – which looked just like the ones we train with. I wondered of course if the tracklayer had forgotten to pick up the marker flags.

She smelled them and carried on but I was more than confused. I couldn’t see any track marks on the frozen ground so I just decided to trust my dog and she got straight to the glove without any more side tracking.
