Last Month's Trials

I'm told I'm going to an agility trials this weekend so I know I'll have a lot of fun. I have some pics Mom took at our last trials to post; she FORGOT to do it! That's so rude of her...

We were in MD April 19-20 and we saw a whippet there checking his scores behind the plexiglass. I think he had his dad tell him what they were 'cause as you can see he was 'way too short to read anything:



Emmy and I did a fair bit of waiting around for our turn. We stayed in my big new crate which has my name on it! Some guy was trying to run for President and when it wasn't working out we got some cool new stickers with my name on it! What are the odds....



Emmy took this waiting around a bit to the next level. She's always been a pretty relaxed dog -- look at her -- she's ringside, waiting for her turn, and she's laying on Dennis and taking a nap! He IS rubbing her tummy, though....



We had a good time at the trials -- I qualified for the first time at Excellent A Standard with all the large scary equipment like the see-saw, dog walk and A-frame, and Emmy earned her Open Jumpers Preferred title, so Mom was pleased. We had a nice ride home in the Jeep:



Emmy's going to sit this trials out, but yeah, I think we'll have fun just Mom and me this weekend!



In class this week I was extra fast 'cause I still thought I was at a lure coursing event. Mom spent a lot of time running to catch me. I think our teacher noticed...
Maybe I won't be AS fast tomorrow so Mom won't have to run so hard -- ha ha!

Stay tuned,
Rudy
