Last Agility Trials of the Year

Well I had a great weekend -- went to our last agility trials of the year in Maryland, and on the second day it snowed! Good thing we were indoors. Ollie came along to keep me company and help keep me warm in that big crate Mom likes to bring. Ollie needs to get out anyway and see new places. He did pretty good -- next year sometime he's supposed to try running a course, too. Betcha he can't run as fast as me! haha.

Here I am relaxing with a friend while waiting to run -- I have a LOT of friends. Mom tried out the video on her new camera -- say cheese! My friend and his wife have German Pinschers. I was wondering, do they pinsch??? I don't want to get THAT close to find out!

So here I am running our first course of the weekend. Wait and see at the weave poles -- I start messing up and then really lose it later on while passing the A-frame. I loved it so much the first time I decided to do it again! Then I tried to leave early by jumping the last jump (out of frame but I come back). Hey it could've been worse; a couple of years ago I used to tear around the ring like a maniac! zzzzoooommmm.... (MOM: the first course of the weekend is ALWAYS a problem)

Made up for it later by being a good boy in Jumpers and qualifying. The next day I ran well in Standard but missed that dog walk contact AGAIN(for all you agility fans you'll know what I mean!) so there went that. Then we went home 'cause Mom was getting nervous about the snow, so I didn't get to do one last Jumpers run. Aw, Mom! Now I have to wait a month or two before we go again. Bummer --

On Thursday I had a major haircut - I hadn't had a trim since September so I was VERY fuzzy. Before her camera died Mom took this pic of me in the tub at our groomer/breeder's. I don't even look like myself there.

So I was aerodynamic for the agility trials without all that ol' hair. Works every time!

Hey Rudy! Want to see what your son (Fizz) is up to? It's his first snowfall and he's chasing his sister, Willow, around. He LOVES to run... just like his dad.

Fizz and Willow have their own Facebook Fan page:

Maggie and Mitch

Hey Dougie, I saw the pics of Fizz on the fan page! That's my boy! I was doing the same thing when I was his age, chasing my little girlfriend Josie around and around and around.... I still do that, only I make her and Ollie and Emmy chase me. It's fun!
