Do you know what else is exciting? Starting next Tuesday, only 6 days away, I'm going to join the Royal City Rockets agility group for drop-ins at 7:00 P.M. I also take agility classes at another place in the mornings at 9:00, so now I'm going to be doing agility twice every Tuesday!
Okay, now I'm going to share agility news that's not in the future, but what passed last week...
Last week I went to another agility fun match, and it was the best one I've ever done yet! We had to get up at 6:30, when it was still dark out, and then drive to the agility barn to be there by 8:00. We did 5 runs - Gamblers, Gamblers 2, Standard, Jumpers, and Tunnelers. Guess what place I got in the first run I did? 1st! And I didn't get 1st just out of my jump-height group, I got 1st out of all 40+ dogs that were there! I didn't make any mistakes (and neither did my human, for once!), and I ran fast and smooth throughout the whole run. My human Lizzy and I were awarded a new blue AAC leash and collar. We were quite surprised to have gotten 1st place out of all the dogs, 'cause a bunch of them were advanced runners and have been competing for years.
In our second run, we got 1st place again. We almost got first place out of all the dogs again, but another advanced dog beat us by a hair! But I don't mind, I didn't want to put that dog to shame, I'm sure he'd be embarrassed if I, a dog who hasn't even gone to a real trial, beat him again. Hee hee.
The next run I got 4th because Lizzy made me go in the wrong direction (it's always the human's fault!), and after that I got 1st again in jumpers, because jumping is what I do best! I got third in the last run, which was still a very good run!
Here are some pictures of me and my human running...
It's kind of hard to see me on the teeter because I blend right in with the dirt ground behind me! That's the only problem with being a brown dog.
Jumping is my favorite part! Notice how I usually have almost a foot to spare when I fly over the bar? I could easily jump over the highest bar, and in fact I often have at my agility classes, hee hee.
Here I am, just blasting out of the tunnel in the tunnelers event! I tell ya, that was a fast run!
Here's some of the ribbons I got on that day!
Okay, I think that's all the agility news I had to share... I'll let you all know how our first real trial goes! Now, I'm off to catch up on everyone else's blogs!
