Snow melt brings a little agility!

After weeks of super cold temps and lots of snow, it finally melted away and got warmer. Today it was almost 50, sunny and absolutely no wind! Perfect weather for a little agility - which Mum was glad to indulge in for both me and Gracie. A super great break to a busy, stressful week!!!

Here is a pic of our yard when the snow melt got going. No where for the water to go, so I got in a good wade!

But this morning we woke up and the water was all gone!

Of course we got all excited the minute Mum reached for her agility shoes. The sad thing is that one of us has to go in our crate and wait while one of us gets to go first. It's the rule at our house. Guess who got to go first today? Me, Me, Me!!!!

We worked on some distance stuff, sending to jumps and tunnels and the weaves. Worked on a few difficult weave entrances with post turns and rear crosses. Worked on some weave speed, using a target out from the weaves. For not doing agility for weeks, Gracie and I both did pretty doggone good. Both of our weave speeds weren't up to end of last year, but not bad. We were both super focused (not easy for the Grace-ster), and our jump speed wasn't bad either.

But the best part? It was fun, fun, fun!!!!!!

Here's a little vid...


  1. Looks like so much fun, wish I had something like that around here. =)

  2. Wow, you had some lake front property for a while. Poodles love lakes, well, some of us do.

  3. Oh Johann, I just enjoyed watching you do some backyard Agility. I just love how fast you weave! Impressive! I can weave fast but sometimes it gets all messy. Hee! I have the habit of missing poles. Glad you received mah challenge picture!


Thanks for barking in!
