All smiles!

With six months off of agility class, I'd forgotten how much Dax loves it. We're still in Beginner's class, because I didn't know how much she (or I) would remember, but she's doing great! She loves the teeter, she's a weaving fiend, and jumping is a joy! If we can get the A-frame, we'll be all set. I'm trepidatious (if that's a word) about it, so I'm sure it's rubbing off on Dax. We just have to make sure she gets up a good head of steam on the approach. Like all Frenchies, Dax is top-heavy. But I think she can, I think she can, I think she can....
I've discovered that when she gets a bit nervous, it helps if I laugh! She loves laughter - her whole demeanor changes, her adorable Frenchie butt wiggles, those enormous ears rise back up, and she laughs right back. I know that I'm anthropomorphising - but I know a smile when I see one!

Agility is fun! But humans need to have a good sense of humor about it.

Hi, Turbo! Thank you for visiting. We'd be happy to send you all our snow - just send a really, really big sled!
