The 1998 North American Championships in Bangor, Maine
Not the best scores, but we did ok. In the obedience, he walked on his stands (a lot). He blew his voraus, and there were a few other bobbles that cost the points. But, in general, I was pleased with his attitude. I don't have any pictures of the track, but I was very pleased with his focused performance. In the track, he overshot 2 corners by a matter of inches, and he was slow to down on his articles. I also messed up a command for one of the restarts at the article, so that cost us a point. It was on a plowed potato field, and you could see every step clearly, so every deviation from the track showed up. It was probably the 10th dirt track in his life.
