  1. Putting the Pressure On

    August 31, 2012 by myeye

    Last night Chase and I went to agility class.  My right knee is still purple and sore, but I worked around the lack of speed pretty well.  Chase was on — and so happy to be there.  Our instructor used him as the demo dog and though she has never worked with him before, he did everything she wanted him to do.  What a good boy.  He chained 10 obstacles last night: dogwalk, tunnel, jump, jump, table, tunnel, A-Frame, jump, 180 degrees to jump, and a final jump.  I was proud of his effort (and the fact that he did it while I was hobbling along).  So, we are upping the ante.  I mailed entries for Saturday and Sunday of our local agility trial — September 22 and 23, and for our Novice/Open only trial on October 20 and 21.  I’m dragging out the weave poles and setting up some jumps at home.  Chase and I now have a time frame and a goal.  This effort certainly should lead to heavy rain so that the yard is just mud.

    Crazy dog woman!
