This video was taken at our last class for the season. Gromit was sloppy on the weave poles, but other than that I was really proud of her!

Very nice (apart from those weaves!), she looks very confident on all the equipment. :-)

Yes, her weaves were very sloppy. :roll Funny thing is, it seemed that all the dogs in the class were being lazy on the weaves that night. We suspected the heat was part of the reason. It was pretty hot and humid, which is why they don't hold classes during the summer months around here.

I think gromit did great. I also checked out your other video with Lady on the lake and really enjoy it. Is amazing how Lady can follow Gromit even in the water considering her blindness.

Yes, Lady gets around really well. My brother-in-law was having a new roof installed, and Lady came out through her doggy door, walked around the yard, did her business and went back into the house. The workers said they never realized she was blind! One thing he said she really misses, though, was "fetching" sticks from the lake. So her being able to follow Gromit in the lake was something she really enjoyed. She was baying like crazy at Gromit, her tail wagging like mad. It was so heartwarming to watch.

Yeah Gromit!

I loved watching your video! You did wonderful!

Darra...
Our training center closes for summer too... but I found a new one that continues through the summer so Chessie will get to keep her skills up. (and more important ~ Mom will get to improve hers LOL) Do you have a plan for Gromit? Or will she get a nice summer break? Do you think you'll start competing soon? Gromit looks really good!
