Just some photos!

Here's my weave poles. The shiny stuff is the water from the sprinkler! 

This is what my homemade teeter looks like. It's just a board on a concrete block, but that's okay by me. 

Hi there! I have got two feet on, two feet off, just like I am supposed to!

Special Sunday

Tonight the kids from down the street stopped by to see us. They knock on the door, and ask to see each of us. They are two little boys, and they have skateboards. Tonight mom showed them my skateboard, which I've had since I was just a pup, and had me show them how well I can ride.

Mom also played the toenail game with us. That's really fun....all I have to do is hold still while she clips one toenail and then I get a cookie! Geez, humans are so gullible.

We also worked on heeling drills, did some more teeter work, and mom had me do the weave poles for a little while.

Jewel worked on walking up and down the street, and if she looked at mom she got a click and a treat.

Mom's reading a book right now called "How Dogs Learn". Why doesn't she just ask?

Teeter totter!

I'm a big dog now.

Last night at our agility lesson, mom took me on the teeter totter. I was not at all worried, because we have been working for about a year on boards. Some of the boards are solid, some wobble, and some REALLY wobble. So it was no big deal for me. But boy was mom happy. She pulled out the hot dogs for me.

She did say that we only had the teeter on "2". I think that means it was a little low. I hope it gets higher!

Also, I have to report that I am making progress on my weaves. Mom has the channel closed up halfway and I am discovering that I have to bounce back and forth a little, as in parts the channel is a little narrower than me. I'm BIG! So it's all good I guess.

No photos, we had to come in early tonight 'cause the government types are out doing aerial spraying to try to kill mosquitos. They are worried about West Nile virus. Mom says it's a lost cause. Why don't people just take Heartgard like I do?
