Although I like to think I taught him everything he knows about double-lifts.  :-)

Extreme Makeover - Sheep Dog Edition

Hello. Rex the Dog here. You may know me from such hits as
Walking Gigantic Sheep Through Grass

or maybe you've seen me in Soaking in Tub Softly

How about my performance in Splendour in the Grass?

Well, I've embarked on a second career. Don't worry, I'm still doing the sheepie thing. But I'm also learning this new thing called agility. It's like doggy obstacle course. She Who Blows the Whistle gives me wieners and tells me I'm clever, so I like agility. To date, I've learned to jump the hurdles and to weave the poles.

At first, I just walked through a set of poles.

Then there were more poles.

And the wieners just kept coming!

Before I knew it, I was doing the weave pole shuffle, which makes She Who Whistles and Yells very happy.

Suddenly, there were a LOT of poles out there. Still, the wieners kept coming so I kept weaving.

Even in the rain, we practiced, which is weird because She normally does not let us outside when it rains.

So after a couple of weeks of training (though not every day, because She is too lazy/disorganized), I am now weaving 12 poles.

Apparently, I am going to learn to tip a teeter-totter next. Wick tells me I'm gonna get spray cheez, so I'm quite keen to get started!

But again, don't worry, my heart still belongs to the sheep. This is just a hobby, and a really good way to earn wieners!
