We got to do some AKC. My mom has been upset with me because I have been overshooting the weave pole entrance but I'm learning to slow down. We would have had a much more successful time if I had gone in right.

The good news? Two new titles. I'm not so sure it is good but we are now in Excellent A JWW and Excellent B Fast. So, we are no longer allowed that one refusal that my mom was counting on before at those weaves!

My mom is working on the videos and when they are ready she'll post them.

Star :th-up WTG.

Now you get to be in the classes with Rosey -- boy are you going to smoke her butt :evil. You are so fast..... and Rosey isn't.

BTW -- I also had a problem with missing the weave entrance but once I convinced Mom to stay back and not crowd me I do much better. She needs to STOP about 6 feet from the weave poles and let me get into them. If she doesn't stop then I think she wants me to go past them and do a different obstacle.

Your Aunt Kathy will be getting the weaves and jumps tomorrow from Mom, so there will be a little agility set-up waiting for you here in Cal.

One last thing. Mom says there is an absolute prohibition on Butthead Club meetings next weekend :shock:. And boy does she mean it!

:cool Solo

Butthead = no treats, I'm learning the hard way, Solo. :roll

Rosey doesn't have to worry because we are in A and she is in B and if I drop a bar or have any of those infamous Refusals we're done. :sad

My mom has always let me have plenty of room at the weaves, she is now slowing my down before and pointing where I should go so that I don't miss it. It was all her fault, really. She decided that we were going to train distance so she wanted for me to get the far end of the tunnel but I kept going into the weaves perfectly. So what did she do? She kept pulling me out and now I'm all confused. :dk However, in practice over the last week I've been perfect so hopefully I won't miss that entry in Walnut. :wnk

Thanks for lending us the equipment. Aunty Kathy says that it is safe in her car now.

YEAH Star! Congrats on the new titles...my sis Gemma not only flys by poles sometimes, but she's bad and trys to skip so she can jump sooner...but she should know Mom's never going to let her get away with that!

Glad to hear you're in EXC now...hope I catch up soon...
Love,
Your Guy

Hi Andy,

Nice to hear from you again. :wk What is your mom doing about Gemma? Mine started tilting the second pole and it is so much easier to know where to go in when she does that, it slows me down just enough. She remembered that is how I learned initially.

Hopefully we'll see you again soon.
