He got lots of cheese and kisses and got to sit in my lap between his second and third runs, so don't feel sorry for him.
Aww, they had fun! Good job!

Last class before the trial and let's take a tally....

1 dog peed in the ring.

1 dog decided to sniff out about 10 dropped treats.

I ran into 3 separate obstacles(2 wing jumps and 1 set of weaves)

I lost my dog on the course once when she took a blind cross just perfectly but I had planned a front cross there and then everyone was cheering because.... well my dog did right but I had no idea where she'd gone. So I ended up standing in the middle of the ring with a derrrr look on my face.

So I'd say we're ready.

Seriously though we had some good moments and my dogs are doing well. We did decide to try guides on the weaves and it seems to be working very well for my two so I'm going on a quest to build some easy and cheap guides for my weave poles.

At least we had a happy.

BB - Ugh this heat has totally been brutal. I can't blame Gusto on that! I'm glad he gave you some good stuff, though! And I understand about a new class being scary - I'm still nervous running sometimes in the same class I've been in for like a year now LOL.

Beanie - I think they did GREAT! Love their enthusiasm. Can't wait to see more of both of them

Laurelin - HAHAHA sounds like you guys are ready

Here's a video of Kimma doing a course last weekend. It was REALLY hot in there at only 8am so I didn't push her. Did some warm up and practicing a few places in the course, then we just ran it:

Maybe since we've had all the issues now the trial will go smoothly! I was really hoping for a nice practice where everything came together like last week. Lol

It is a clearly understood law of agility that a terrible practice = a good trial. You are golden!

Here's a video that's making its rounds on Facebook this morning. It answers the question "why?". Why do we do these crazy things for our dogs?

Love the Reason video, too. Sometimes I ask myself that question when I try to add up all the sacrifices, the time, every dollar spent. But, the images in the video speak so much truth, I live for the happy dance at the end of an agility sequence or the unbridled giddiness that happens when something finally clicks. The pride felt for those brilliant ah-ha moments and good decisions you know were really hard for them!
