This year we entered only Chessy to bikejoring women open category, because Heidi was mated, Daisy was in season, Kala will probably end her career in sled sports etc.
The track was 3.5 km long, almost completely level with mud baths here and there. In general, very nice track. The weather was perfect for dogs and people, not warm, but sunny.
The major problem was, that Barbara drove into a mud, fell and stopped Chessy instantly. From the fall on Chessy was not so confident anymore as in the beginning. In the finish line she even stopped when she felt that leash is "hard" again in the way, that Barbara might fall again. After the leash was "relaxed", and Barbara promised Chessy, that they are now going to drink water (she already knows what means "vodika"), they went on. Sadly Barbara forgot to tell her, that this water waits for her in the car. So before the finish line she pulled once again out from the path towards a small channel full of water. After they managed to go back to the track, Chessy got more and more energy, confidence back from all the cheer-leading beside the track. Thank you all, because you helped Chessy a lot!
At the end Chessy was 6th with time 16 min 45 s, i.e. she had 2 minutes more than Heidi, but Heidi knows all the commands and Barbara knows Heidi, while we are all getting to know Chessy.
We thank the organizers for such a nice event, all the competitors, spectators, and all the photographers: Katja Jemec, Blayo San and Vesna Hrovat. It was really a nice day and we are looking forward to 4th memorial of Henrik Sečnik 2015.
