Weave Challenge Position 8

We did the weave challenge yesterday - position 8 - and actually got video this time! I was so excited to play this game that I couldn't think straight. Well, you'll see:

For anyone new, the order of the moves is:

1. run past with dog on right and left
2. rear cross with dog on right and left
3. send to weaves
4. recall through weaves

Gotta zoom!

tRicky T-Day!

Sara, Oreo and Chewy inspired us to learn froggy legs. I am not one of nature's natural froggy leg dogs! But Sara gave us some advice - like starting with me on a cushion - that really helped me to figure out what my crazy mom wanted. I still need a lure - I am not so stupid as to do the trick without some tantalizing food in front of my nose. Frog legs = food!

Mom says I am the furriest frog ever. Is that a compliment? Does my fur make me look fat?

Weave Challenge Position 7 and the Park

Hey, we finally did our position 7 for the weave challenge (remember the weave challenge Kathy posted many many months ago)? We set up the weaves and dusted off the Flip camera. For the first time ever in my life, mom got out some canned food as my reward - it smelled so very exciting! You should've seen my warm-up heeling and attention. Well, I was AMAZING at the weaving. I couldn't get to that target plate any faster and didn't miss a single entry. You should've seen that too, but the darn Flip camera turned itself off after one second and we did not get any video at all. :(

Today we also went to the park. I just love it there and could go every day if mom would take me. The leaves are just starting to change here. It was a beautiful day and lots of people and dogs were out enjoying it.

In solidarity with some of my Sheltie friends (you know who you are), I was NOT going to look at my mom.

I'm not looking at her -
I will not look at her -

Still not looking -

Oops, caught me looking! How did that happen?

Gotta zoom!
