Last weekend Grace, Magic and I tried to run teacup agility. In teacup the equipment is smaller and the courses seem tighter. I chose this as Graces first attempt back to agility since she got sick since I thought the smaller trial, smaller equipment and nice local location would make it easier for her. Well she was amazing as far as her health and happiness. She never stopped wagging and smiling the whole weekend. She ran 6 times total, and we actually qualified 3 times, twice in standard and one game. In her second run of the weekend she started to give me serious attitude, so she got pulled off the course, but the rest of the times she was wonderful. We had a few bobbles, heck we are out of practice but overall she was terrific and I was so proud of my pumpkin girl.
Magic only went on Sunday. He ran all 6 classes and qualified 3 times, 2 games and one standard. His issue was leaping contacts. We really may have to consider changing to a 2 on 2 off. Running is not working with him at all. On the positive side, while he was a wild man, and we had a few miscommunications overall he tried really hard and I can't fault that. I messed up both dogs a couple of times when I forgot which dog I had and handled wrong. I need to work on that! But thats OK we have plenty of time to play together!
