Weekend Catch-Up Time

Happy Sunday Evening Everyone!!

I hope that you have all had a wonderful weekend! :-D And, perhaps, are watching the Academy Awards as I type (I'd just like to ask what the lady who won Best Make-Up thought when she dressed for the Oscars? Hehehe!)!

This weekend was an awfully busy couple of days for me...I started off on Friday, going to the doggie park where I met up with an old puppy friend of mine, Summit, who is a miniature Australian shepherd. I haven't seen him in a few months, so it was great running around and wrestling with him!! :-D Then we met another mini called Mondo, who absolutely adored me, so all three of us went nuts around the park!! We must have spent two and a half hours at the park, personally not enough time in our minds! ;-) Hehe!

On Saturday, Auntie Nilla and her family came over and helped Domeek and I fix up the backyard and patio area! There were so many people in the house, I couldn't even count them all (um, ok...there were 6...but that's a huge number!) They weeded and then painted the concrete and garage, of course, I supervised and barked at everyone! :-D They wouldn't have gotten anywhere with out little old me! ;-)

Then this morning, we went to Holbrook Palmer Park to check out all of the cherry blossoms that are blooming super early this year! :-D

Sorry for the bad, shaky camera photos...I was yanking on the leash! ;-)

There are always tons of great smells at this park, so I love coming here!!

This afternoon was my first Intermediate Agility class too!! Oh man, I was kind of nervous cause it's been a few weeks since doing any kind of agility training...but we immediately did a few hurdles then the table and voila, I fell right back into it! :-D

Hessie, Millie, and Zoe were all there too, along with a couple of new dogs from Miss Rachel's other classes at different schools, including: a huge, white fluffy dog called Michael, a golden retriever who's name escapes me, and an Australian Shepherd called Teddy. A couple of the newbies were a bit nervous, but everyone kicked agility tush! :-D

This week we learned the weaving poles...um, these are challenging to say the least! There's a specific way that you have to go in and out of them, which was a bit weird to pick up...but they were pretty fun and I got tons of treats! Hehehe! Then we learned a different way to do the hurdles; instead of going in a straight line or adding a curve, we did them in a serpentine arrangement...meaning that I had to follow an S pattern without Domeek running me through them, she just directed me with her arms! I excelled at this one! ;-) Oh Yeah!

By the end of the class we were combing 12 different stations including the table, hurdles, dog walk, hoop, and tunnel! :-D Man, were we all super exhausted by the end!!

So, I'm napping while Domeek watches the Oscars!

Well, there you go...you are all caught up on my busy weekend! I hope that you have all had a great time too...see you tomorrow! :-D

  3. Aww it sounds like you had a blast doing agility level 2. Good job on learning how to weave through the poles so quickly.

    I think Beamer would do well in agility. We took a mini course at some event when he was 8 months old and he learned the tunnel and hoop jump pretty quickly. I was able to teach him the ramps on my own, too. You're making me want to enrol him for sure :)
