Happy Monday Everyone!!
It's a beautiful sunshiny start to the week, so I hope that you are all enjoying yourselves! :-D
This weekend I got to hang out with my cousin, Pippi!! We haven't hung out for a couple of months, so it was pawesome to catch up with the girl!
We started out at the Redwood Shores dog park...but there were a bunch of yappy small dogs on my side and practically no one on her side, so I trotted over to the large dog section and played with a her and a cool labradoodle! Then we took a walk on the levees!
Mid way through our walk, Pippi and I decided that we were far too exhausted to move one step more...so we both hurumphed on the grass and refused to move! ;-) Aunty Nilla said that Pippi was way too big to be picked up, so we had to suck it up and keep on walking! Pft! But a trip to Starbucks definitely helped (and a lick of whip cream didn't hurt either!)!!
Miss Rachel introduced the A-Frame in agility class on Sunday...luckily it was only a practice one, so it wasn't too steep (phew!)! All us pups got this one really quickly and even understood the whole "two paws on, two paws off" premise!! My friend, Millie the doodle, is going to be an A-Frame superstar apparently, cause she gets sooooo much speed and propel-ion! :-D Go Girl!!
We spent a lot of time on the weave poles too...hm, I've decided that I don't really like them. To begin with, I didn't understand how to enter the poles (this is almost rectified), but now I'll do one or two poles and then walk on the outside of the rest of them. Domeek thinks that it's 50-50 problem with me and her...she needs to speed up and give better directions and I need to pay more attention and keep my nose forward. We just need more practice, I think!! Any weave pole agility tips?!
We have two more intermediate classes left, but I can only make one, cause of our Napa trip! ;-D In April we'll begin advanced agility! WooHoo!!!
Have a great day everyone!
