Agility report

Monday night at agility was great.

We did a mini jumpers course. There were 12 hurdles in all. I mostly did them right. Mom confused me a little at one point, but I covered for her error. There were some rear crosses, front crosses, and some layering, where I take a jump but there is another jump between me and mom. I do not like the layering thing. I have an invisible leash on my mom and it only extends so far. Anyway she has the treats so why would I go out that far?

Treat report: we had HOT DOGS. My oh my! This is not your usual diet kibble.

Report from the field

The field at my instructor's house that is.

Last night was our beginning agility group class. We all worked on "self control" issues which will be very important once we start trialing.

We did stays, restrained recalls (I just love those, you should see the crazed look in my eyes), walking on a wobbly board (like I care if it wobbles, I was bred to jump in BOATS), and the bending game which I am very good at even though everyone thought I would not be able to -- I am very limber.

On the food front, mom had diet kibble for me. However, there were lots of mosquitoes and I ate a couple.

A word about diets

I'm on a diet.

Mom says I have to lose some weight before I can start jumping a lot in agility. I think I look pretty good just the way I am.

Anyway for the last few weeks, she's really cut down on my dog food. She gives me pumpkin and green beans to try to cover up that I'm on short rations but I am not fooled. Plus (this is a little embarrassing), all those veggies make me a little gassy. I hear these mini explosions near my tail but even though I jump around real fast I can never figure out where they are coming from.

Mikey, on the other hand, just got some new dog food, it is called "K/D". He's kind of sick, and she says he probably won't be getting any better and that we just have to make him comfortable for the time he has left. Sure, he's comfortable, he gets plenty of dinner!

So today, I opened up the cupboard door where that yummy food for Mike is kept and helped myself to a snack. Mom was pretty annoyed with me, but it was so worth it. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. She put a child lock on the door though, so I'll have to borrow a thumb somewhere. I'll let you know how this works out.
