Del Valle Kennel Club Agility

Polly and I made our triumphant return to the agility ring today (We made our less-than-triumphant return to training at Jumpin' Java Agility two months ago. After a five month break it was ugly. We are better now).

We had one more leg left in Jumpers and Standard to get our titles. I am happy to report that Polly did wonderfully and we got a third place in Novice B Standard (out of 17 dogs). She had one table runout (huh? Polly? what was that? since when do you jump off the table?) and one off-course to investigate a tunnel after said table runout. In Jumpers, we had a clean run and a second place (out of 15 dogs).  Continuing our tradition of doing great when nobody is filming us I don't have any videos of our runs.

Now we are moving into Open. We are nowhere near ready, in fact I predict we will be ready to show at about the time Nick will be learning to walk. So we'll have a little competition, what will happen first: we get all three of our Open titles or Nick takes three steps. It's on!
