Seriously, I'm never getting a dog over 25lbs again. LOL I've been so spoiled with Zuma and now Zinga, I don't know what I'd do with a real size dog.

Zinga is so darn cute! Zuma is pretty much my favorite thing ever, but Zinga is definitely climbing up the list as well!

You can be in the cool kids stopped contact club with me and Gusto

Look harder There is a very very short clip of Gusto's dogwalk on page 52.

I'm not sure I'll have anyone video the USDAA Intro trial I'm doing with him next weekend, as it is in a very dark icky barn, but his first "real" trial is going to be mid December. It will be videoed, because we are all pretty certain he's going to figure out something interesting to do that nobody has ever thought of before.

Yes, you have to video is first trials and share with everyone! It's absolutely necessary.

I have to confess.....I am a born again Mecklenberg fan!

For years I've been a die-hard Greg Derrett/Susan Garrett follower. Then, watching the videos from this year's FCI world comp, I found myself really enjoying the more "European" style of handling, it just seems to flow and make sense.

So, I decided to cross over to the evil side and try out some blind crosses and a serp without the serp arm, lol! I'm really excited to learn a bunch of new moves.

What about dual dog tug with two dogs well over 25lbs? Building muscle LOL

I stay in shape just handling my 45-65 lb dogs but I am not so secretly jealous of little dogs you can easily swoop up and not strain your back.

Ahhh I do want an itty bitty someday...

Oh Aleron, how easily do you forget. I had two Danes who would dual tug. Beat that.

Little dog benefit #314: Crowded narrow passage way to warm up area/ring entrance with a dog that gets snarky when she's high... ask her to jump into your arms and carry her to the warm up jump.

Yeah I think Webster is right about Zuma-size and it really is so handy for agility. So so handy. I know what you mean about just picking them up and wading through the crowded bits...makes life so much easier. I can carry Mira but it's not pretty lol so I end up just putting her in a tight heel and keeping me between her and high-snarky dogs. Hasn't been a problem but the carry-size is just lovely.

If only Flatcoats came in 30-40lb packages instead of 50-80lb packages!
