I am a Sad Doggie

Yesterday was one of the biggest disappointments of my life. It was agility day. Now, agility isn't disappointing, it's when you can't do agility that is disappointing. I was so excited... I was going to run... I was going to jump... it was going to be a fun night at the agility barn... until we got there. Lizzy had me all excited, she kept on saying, "Agility, Sparky! Agility! We're gonna do agility!" I love that word... agility... Why do they call it that? Well, perhaps because agility means agile, and ity. I know what agile means, but ity? Maybe it stands for Irresponsible Terrier Youth? But I'm not a terrier... I suppose I'll never know what ity means. All I know is that it goes with agility, so I love it. But, back to my big disappointment, we got to the barn... the one we do agility in. It was 8:00. Agility time. But we could not get in. The gate was closed... the barn lights were off... all the lights everywhere were off... no one was there... it was dark... where's agility? We waited... thinking maybe the agility people were very late... they never came... Eventually, Lola the Puggle and her owner came, and they were also puzzled as to why it was dark, and no one was there. So finally, we had to go back home. No agility... no fun... That is why I am a very sad doggie. Today my humans are going to try to phone the agility people, and ask why there was no class. I hope there will be a class again next week...

Meanwhile, I will lie around and be very sad...

And I will stare into space... dreaming... hoping... that one day, I might be able to do agility again...


Oh... and one more thing... thank you for all your comments on my art work. I'm glad you all like it. I was thinking... if I did put up some of my art on ebay... would anyone seriously buy it? I would put the money towards the animal shelters around here... to help other doggies (And cats, believe it or not) who are less fortunate than we are...

I hope everydog has a great weekend!

I know how much you love your classes, please don't be sad!!! Sure next week you will have it!
Sounds great your idea of selling your art on Ebay, and much more for a good cause!
Good luck

Oh no Sparky,
What a bummer. Wonder why there was no class but yet you & the other dog thought there was. Do you think they changed it & didn't tell you two?? Maybe next week you'll get to do agility. Hope you have a fun weekend. Mama will have a surprise on our blog later so check it out.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hey Sparky,

Too bad about agility. You sure look sad in those pics (pretty cute too!).

I think "ity" stands for "Irresistible Treats, Yay". 'Cuz when I went to agility class it was all about the treats! Yay!

Oh no, what a big disappointment it is! I hate it when no one informs us when there;ll be no classes on that week. Luckily we don't live sooo far or else my hooman M will scream! Tomorrow's my 2nd agility class but it'll be in the morning. Maybe you wanna join me? The equipments there are nice but we do it on the cement floor, no good but I still like that sport as much as you do!

Love licks,

Hello Sparky!!! I feel it of agility, indeed, feel it very much ... I understand that you are badly. I liked much your drawing, you have very much art, it is a very nice drawing... It Try to put in ebay, surely that you earn some money to help to other animals, it is a good idea!!!

Love, Chloe

Sorry about your agility class buddy. That's a bummer!
Hey--we bet you COULD sell your art on Ebay. Especially if you show'd a picture of you doing the work. You really have an eye for artwork! You're good!
Thanks for the well wishes for Rocky. He's much better this evening!

What a dissapointment! We also know how it is when the humans get us all excited about something and then nothing happens. That is definetly cause for sadness. We don't blame you for looking the way you did in those two pics. Hope you can go for agility class again soon! Belly Rubs Tasha & Eva.

Alex said...

Oh no! I was disappointed too. There was a sign on the pet store that says about agility class. So my mom asked for some information cause we want to try out. What a disappointment. Apparently, it was just a display. We'll keep on inquiring though because I know I will love to join. I could run and chase other dogs in the park like a speeding bullet. I could never catch up though. But I love it anyway.

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh no...that's too bad. Hopefully you'll have class again next week. Please cheer up!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Murphey said...

Pug Mommy said...

No agility! What a bummer...

nm said...

Bummer Sparky.

I would be bummed if I had been all excited about something too.

Did your mom call the agility people to find out what happened. You could have been at home taking a nap or taking your peeps for a long walk instead of waiting for them at the barn.

Ernest, who wishes he could do agility

ROSSI said...

Cheers

T-man said...

Poor Sparky, please cheer up! We don't like seeing you so sad... I'm sure you will get to do agility soon. There was probably a misunderstanding on the time.

serendipity said...

Cheer up, Sparky! Everyone loves to see your happy face, so don't be sad. Keep your paws crossed for next week ;-)

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Ling said...

Oh sparky! bummer.
I hate it when I get all excited and then I don't get to do it. Like when I thought the hoomans are gonna play with me the whole night, then...then..they just went in. :(

Amici said...

Sorry to hear that you couldn't do agility. You sure are good at it!

We're sad to see that you are disappointed and bored but boy do you take amazing photos!

Yes! We think your photos would definitely sell on EBAY with (Lizzie's autograph of course).
