Yes, Agility again!

Yep, we were out agility-ing again today, Sunday, and what a gorgeous day it was! Sunny, not too windy, warm (almost too warm), just a nice day. After two days of rain it was nice to see the sun again. Mom took me, Emmy, and Josie to a 'fun' match where they had Obedience, Rally, a CGC test, and of course agility. She signed us all up for practice before next week's trials. Emmy hadn't been on a course in a couple of weeks, Josie had NEVER been on a course before, and I was there just for fun. We saw our buddy "Coll" the Scottish Deerhound, so Mom snapped a few pics of him in action: He was getting ready for his run. He sure is tall! I get a crick in my neck looking up at him. He's sitting on the table, only I can't see the table! He was by far the biggest dog to run today. Mom got someone to video Josie's last run (she got to run twice) and here's part of it. Josie thought Mom threw that leash just for her to go get... and got a little shaky on the weaves but she was good otherwise!

At the table the camera went nuts so Mom's friend turned it back on to catch the last half. Not a bad run for a totally novice doggie.


That's my girl! We had to wait to go home so Mom could help take the rings and equipment down since she's a club member and had to help. We waited in the crate and FINALLY we got to go home. Here's Josie, me and Emmy (squished behind me) saying "Hurry up Mom get in this Jeep right now!!!"

Mom also put me in Rally Novice just for fun -- she meant to enter Rally Excellent but by the time she thought about it, Excellent was over. That's OK Mom, I can deal with the disappointment! (ha ha -- it was too hot to work)

Sure was fun -- next weekend is the agility trials up the road from us. Sure hope it doesn't rain from the remnants of Hannah that might come up to visit us later in the week. Mom hates to run in the rain but I LOVE it! She slips and slides and I just laugh and laugh and laugh... get a video of THAT now!
