Agility today

Today at agility was a little different, it was really warm and sunny, unlike the last really cold trial. Magic had a lovely jumpers run, clean-completely clean! that earned him his NJP! Other than one small oops in Standard, that run was lovely too. The oops though, caused an NQ. The teeter tipped pretty fast and caught him off guard a bit, and the bounce sort of knocked him off sideways, missing the yellow completely. Other than that though, he hit the other contacts, followed my lead and had a really smooth run. Unfortunatly in FAST he was leary of the fast tipping teeter, so bailed off it at about mid point, ending our run.

Grace though was really, really a good girl! No, she didnt Q, but that wasn't what today was about for her. She didn't get the send, but that was totally my fault. I tried to handle her like Magic- and she is NOT Magic. However, even without the send she earned 30 points. But the best part was that although she was a little excited at the start (which is where I messed up the send) she got it together and ran really nice for me. AND when the run was over, she ran to the leash and got leashed up! GOOOD GIRL!! She had fun and I had fun and it was a hot day all around. She did get mad though when I dumped her in the pool to cool off.

Congratulations on the new title for Magic!!!! And especially for a good day for Grace. That was the most important part and you should be darn proud of her. Keep up the good work and hope to see you soon.

Miss Grace looks great and is having so much fun!

I think the water thing may be another genetic thing with our girls. Spence makes a bee line for anything resembling a stock tank whenever he is outside. Scout acts like she would melt if she stuck her toe in!

Yup, Moira is that same way - no water for her! Unless it's just rain and means she can splash through mud and then drag it all inside.
