Unveiling the Masterpiece!

Well, not a masterpiece, and still very much a work in progress, but Rex debuted his much-documented running dogwalk this past weekend at the Kee-Gigg trial in Cloverdale.  The first one was a horrible toenail-in-the-yellow, but the other five were quite nice.  He did a lot of good things and I'm really thrilled with where he is at this nascent point in his agility career.  He earned Qs in 4 of 6 runs.

Atta boy, Rex!

And then there is Miss Wicky, who once again ran very very well.  I don't have much video of her because I'm kinda superstitious and it seems like every time I have the video going, she has a horrible run (or I break my nose).  So though there's no evidence of it, she picked up Qs in each of Snooker, Steeplechase and .... Gamblers!  She almost Q'ed the other Steeplechase.  In AAC, an off-course in Steeplechase is a 20 second time penalty.  Well, Wick went off-course (into a tunnel - how strange) and still almost qualified as she was 19 seconds under time.  That would have been so awesome!  Oh well.

Here are the agility dogs in their keen harnesses.  Lou is hiding somewhere in the house, ashamed of his lack of harness.  :-)
