New Friends!

We had a blast today! Mom and I went to a local agility trial and met with our blogging friends Johann, Gracie and their mom. It was so good to meet them. Johann is a really cool dog and we watched him in his standard run and his JWW run and he Q'ed them both! (This was his first trial since he pulled a muscle (iliopsoas) in January). He and his mom looked really good out there - hopefully mom and I can become as good a team some day! Any way, between the runs we sat and watched a lot of other dogs compete - I can't wait to get out there and show my stuff - I know I can do it too! And we also took a couple of walks to take in the new smells and sounds. Mom and Johann's mom did LOTS of talking, but I was a very good boy and sat on mom's lap for most of the time. Johann's mom also had good treats, so I liked her right away and tried to impress her with my quick sits. Must've worked because the treats kept coming! I think Johann and I could become very good friends! Hopefully we will see them again soon!

We spent the rest of the afternoon in our backyard. Mom wanted to practice some agility with me but there were way too many distractions. My neighbor dog friend Ciara was out in her yard (she is actually moving away so we hadn't seen each other for a long time). We did lots of running at the fence and I did lots of barking. And then some other neighbors came out with their two little girls and their dog Amber, so there was more running and barking. I would say it has been a great day!

Gotta zoom!
