Can we stay?

We went to our class this morning! Mom warmed me up with a jump and the chute and the teeter. With the promise of chicken at the end, I tipped that big heavy teeter faster than ever before! Chicken is an amazing motivator!

Class started with us working at a single jump on taking the backside of the jump. Funny but yesterday at home we did a little treiball for the first time in a long time. Mom would send me around to the back of the ball and have me push it to her. This translated perfectly to me going around the outside of the wing to the back of the jump.

Little dogs got to run the sequence first. Mom messed me up some but I had fun any way. I got to do my first-ever wall jump too.

When class was over, we went out of the ring to get my harness and stuff. But I didn't want to go. While mom was listening to the teacher, I went back out to the ring and started up the dogwalk. Mom let me finish it and then tried to get me to go with her. I just laid down in the ring and stayed there. Mom walked away but I held fast. I wanted to keep doing agility!

Unfortunately class was really over so I had to leave with mom. I can't wait until next week!

Gotta zoom!

Awwww, Ricky! That is so cute. Glad you had fun. Chicken has amazing powers. Your mom went home smiling for sure.

Chewy throws a temper tantrum every week when it's time to leave agility. Somehow, he makes himself weigh 150 pounds.

It is so good Ricky has got his mojo back and is enjoying agility again.

Glad you had fun! Interesting that the treiball skills carried over.

We enjoyed tonight's class set up, too!

So happy for you Ricky! Isn't it fun to go to school and play! Sounds like you and your Mom are having a great time!

So happy for you, Ricky! It must be so much fun there. How I wish there were some classes for me too. May be I should start pester my mom now.

OMG, AWESOME, and I never thought about trieball and going to the back of jumps, but by gosh- that is so similar! How cool is that? Ricky must have felt like he was so smart having such a head start on that skill!

Sounds like you had a great time doing agility.

Ah Ricky go you! I like agility a lot more now I is a bit older. Maybe we just needed to be a bit more bigger and confident before we could feel really brave. Glad you is enjoying it lots now!
