I love it! Though I do have on professional suggestion, you should spray paint her pink when working in a barn on dirt She blends right in!

She looks like she's having a blast. Go Penny!!

I am having so much fun with her. I know we are behind in training, and that we're probably still moving along slowly. But I'm having a whole lot of fun, and she sure seems to be as well! I'm in no hurry to compete, I know it's going to be quite a while, and this stuff is fun anyway!

If I was more competitive she might frustrate me with some of her antics, instead I think she gets more frustrated by me than I do her

Congrats to everyone on their recent success!

I also had a bit of an agility win yesterday. I had my first day of houseleague. It's probably the first bit of agility I've done in weeks, and I've not been in regular classes for... jeez... a long time now. A year? Cohen was so fun and fast I couldn't believe it. She was just on fire. And she was SO GOOD.

First run was a standard run. Cohen did the full set of 12 weaves (no 10th pole pop-outs) on her first try, at speed. And, she only knocked ONE bar. Blew my mind, considering all our bar knocking woes up until this point. The knocked bar was on a tight turn which I knew was going to be a problem going in, so I don't feel too badly about it.

Second run was a gamblers. Send over frame, call back over jump, send over jump into tunnel then call back over jump. She made it look easy. Success. (No knocked bars!)

The last run was a fun run similar to a steeplechase. Fast, with minimal handling requirements. The basic jist of the course was to run it as fast as you could, and when you got to the end of it, run it in reverse back to the start, then back to the end, then back... To try to get as far as you could in 60 seconds. Cohen was lovely. She went further, cleaner and faster than any other dog, and there was some pretty stiff competition there. (Also, no knocked bars!)

That's ONE knocked bar all day. I couldn't be happier with her right now. People were laughing at how she goes through the weaves. She basically bulldozes right through them. High head, tiny steps and she parts them with her face. Not exactly ideal, but FAST!

I am thinking spray painting her is probably the way to go ..she really does match the dirt, doesn't she?!!

And I am (sometimes) too hard on myself about Penny. I was so busy being told she'd never make an agility dog that I feel like we have something to prove! Granted, we are slowly proving it. Wait for her debut at 18months!

Congrats, Cohen& you I agree.. video, please!

Penny looks awesome for only sixteen months, you're doing an amazing job with her. Don't be hard on yourselves, you clearly don't have to worry.

Bag two weeks of nothing. Last week trainer had to take her dog to a specialist (vet stuff) then this weekend was icy most the time (no indoor facility). And today I decide to step on a razor, sending me to the urgent care and making my foot incredibly sore. There's no way I can run on this thing. . I'm bummed pretty bad.

Penny looked like she was having a lot of fun!

You don't need to spray paint her. Just buy her those high visibility leg bands that people use for jogging!
