|Are we gonna do something? Huh? BALL? Play? Now? Right now? BALL?|
First, I had to make sure Nick was reasonably entertained. The weather was nice, so I parked him under a tree with his baby gym, hoping that he could self-amuse for half an hour or so. Being the best dog ever, Tony came over and plopped himself next to the baby, presumably to make sure I don't make the baby do agility.
|Nick is mildly curious about what we are planning to do.|
Tony looks skeptical.
We practiced some box jump drills from AgilityNerd.
|Polly is ready to go. Pardon our crooked sit.|
After a bunch of runs through the course, Polly was, in the words of a friend of mine "ready for a doggie equivalent of a martini". We did get some good practice in with front/rear crosses, threadles, and 270's before she collapsed though. The baby was also quite cooperative, only periodically requiring re-positioning on the mat to bring some new part of the yard into view.
|That was exhausting! I need a break!|
|Agility is boring. Tony would rather take a nap and Nick finds his|
toys much more interesting.
We are not quite ready to trial yet, but we are getting closer. Guess I am going to have to bring the baby gym with me to agility trials though.
