Whoa was it ever beautiful outside! It was a rainy start to our Sunday (Mom was grumpy as we got to the agility trials) but she got better as the sun came out.
We got some pics from the show photographer so you can see just how much fun I had.
We had entered the FAST class first (well you'd think every class was a fast class, that's what you want, but this was a game). We had to make up our own course but each obstacle has a point value and you're supposed to get so many points and also try the distance challenge. That's when Mom can't cross this tape on the ground but she has to direct me over a few things while I'm a distance away from her. Today she finally understood the rules so we had a blast. We got the most points in the shortest amount of time and we got the blue ribbon! Doesn't happen often, let me tell you.
Then it was time to run my Standard course.
Gettin' ready, and I'm grinning in anticipation:
I clear Jump Number One with the greatest of ease...
Then I blast through the chute:
Eventually I go over this jump where I can show off my superb jumping form in front of the judge:
Then I flash my winning smile to the audience while posing on the table:
Then it's up and over the A-frame!
And over the dreaded triple jump that's right after the A-frame and right before the corner of the ring. Lots of dogs told me they had trouble with this one. They didn't jump high enough and knocked part of it down. Uh oh, that's not good! As you can see I had no problems!
I'm coming out of the tunnel and looking for my next obstacle here:
That's all the pics but I finished in fine form and we got a ribbon. Mom was happy, and in Jumpers we ran really fast (Mom says I beat her again!), but she messed us up at the last jump. Ohh nooo! It was a fast run though. We'll go again in 3 weeks up to Maryland to try our luck. Ollie came with us to see everything but he wanted to take a nap after a while. He's still a baby!
Going to go rest up now --
(p.s. my puppies are opening their eyes now! Mom says they're adorable...)
