Cousin Time

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!

  1. I can offer no advise on weave pole, sorry buddy. But if you need advise on weaving in and out of trees in the woods I am your dog. It's good to catch up with friends isn't it. And to get whipped cream on top of that, well that's just perfect.
    Blessings,

  2. WOW! Great work at the agility. we're not really agility type dogs....too much to sniff.

    Where we play on the weekends, we're the little dogs, so we have to play with the big fellows. No problem. Besides if we get hit, we roll.

  5. So glad you had such a wonderful walk and visit with Pippi. Now about that agility stuff, good luck and do well, cause as Bites says "Uhhhh No, No Way, Never gonna happen, so lets don't go there Dad"! Something about his Scottie Tude showing!

  11. Goose - you are just too smart for those poles. I mean, what's the point of going in and out of them when you can just walk straight ahead much easier?

  12. With all that agility Goose, as we say over here you are going to be, as fit as a butchers' dog. Way to go. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. Pippi is so cute, Goose! I'm glad you go to enjoy the beautiful weather together :)

    And it sounds like you are doing great in agility; I think you have just figured out how to do the weave poles more efficiently ;)
