Blog Takeover

I'm letting Arnie write the blog today. Well, mom is making me. And I have to tell you why before he starts bragging.

This is us in our crate at the show. Indoors and air conditioned. Sweet!

We went to a 3 day agility trial this weekend. I went alone on Friday. And on our first run, I was SCREAMING through the course. I hit the weave poles, back and forth, fast. Then I stopped short.....and POOPED. In the weave poles. I just couldn't help it. Mom was NOT happy. The rest of our runs this weekend were poop-free, but I made a mistake in every run. So I was pretty much zero for 6. NOT impressive. And will never live the poop thing down. Ever.

So anyway, here's Arnie:

Thank you for letting me share my success this weekend. I only went for 2 days, and haven't shown in agility for awhile. I also had surgery 2 weeks ago, and have been laying low since then. So mom didn't have high hopes for my runs.

A view of our Standard course

But I shocked both of us by going 3 for 4 on my runs. With perfect scores in 2 runs. And 2 blue ribbons. And I was the only qualifier in 2 classes (there were about 10-12 dogs in the class). I did the best in Standard, and as she was walking, mom realized I haven't done AKC Standard since April of 2010. And I rocked that class.

Mom's been concentrating on Gracie lately, but I proved that I'm as good, if not better than she is. So I'm going to be entered in more shows in the future. Yeehaa!

Gracie here: he is NOT better. He's not, he's not, he's not.


  1. Gracie, I'm so sorry about your accident, but I just know the other dogs can relate...happens to everyone eventually, right? When you gotta go, you GOTTA go! You'll get em next time.

    Arnie, wow! Good job giving your sister some competition... It must have been the AC!


  2. Well I guess we all know what you think of the weave poles..ha! A girl has a bad day once in a while. Why is it that brothers always have to be show offs? He totally did that on purpose. Good job though Arnie!
