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.
