Silver Medalist!

Hey I'm so happy to get the silver in Hurdles at the Pawlympics! Thanks!! It's so amazing to see all the other contenders. There are some high jumpers in our ranks! Thanks Lenny!

Yesterday Mom took me back up to the agility place where they had an all-day seminar with a couple of the teachers there, and we worked with each of them for half a day in groups of six. At the end of the day she got someone to run me and took this video... I'd never had anyone else run me but Mom so this was different! It was just a small exercise but interesting. The lady sitting in the chair is the teacher -- hey I guess she was tired! She's going to be on the USA Agility World Team once again this fall with her fantastic dog Jive. He's so fast!!!!!

All us doggies were pretty tired from running and jumping all day. By lunchtime I was napping in my crate inbetween runs. Mom was wishing she could get in there and join me too. Ew, Mom, not enough room!

I'm catching up on my Z's right now, I could probably win the Gold in Napping at the Pawlympics ... Gotta be ready for another agility trials next weekend!

Love,
Rudy

Rudy...

Before I forget what is that noise on your blog...like a scraping noise or something....something different.....looks like you run better for your Mom...is that a new idea for the teacher to be so far in advance of the dog? We don't do agility but it always seesm like the person running the dog is right in front of it.
COngratulations on your medal..... that was a pawsome photo of you jumping and I bet you are tired after all those agility practices...we had earthdog practice yesterday and had a ball....
