Whooo hooo a pretty great day!

Ever have one of those days??? You know....THE GOOD ONES! I have nothing earth shattering to share but we did have Breeze's agility class tonight, it was super cold so I almost did not go...but I decided to go and not do Aframe, or weaves and just work on handling. Breeze was SOOOOOOO happy-it was so neat to see. Our first run I was bumbling around and sloppy and Breeze started jumping up yelling and nipping, I had trouble running at one point because I was laughing so hard she was just being so silly. I got my act together and we just felt like we were dancing together on a pretty hard course. When Breeze is feeling good and gets good info she is soooooo amazing. Just seeing her so happy and reading everything so well, just made my day!

The other great thing in class was there has been some tension between my instructor and I because I was having to modify courses.....but today it was so much better and the instructor set up alternate courses for Breeze, I had not even mentioned that we were going to have to modify but she planned out some really nice alternatives so we could make nice transitions around the obstacles that Breeze could not do-I really appreciated that so much.

I brought Cricket and worked after class on just walking around clicking for going over jumps when we walked by,stopping before jumps and C/T for stopping with me, C/T for RC and FC, and we did some AWESOME short sequences. Our teeter is almost there, I have to get some video because she is so cute.

Tomorrow Breeze goes to get another treatment, and we have class tomorrow night too, so hopefully that will all go as well as today went!

That's awesome! I love when agility feels like a dance, that is just the best- a real connection between you and your dog.

Just reading your post makes us feel like dancing.

Hello...we are back from Thanksgiving travels and just getting caught up enough to spend a few minutes with our blogging friend/s. Boy is it amazing how far behind you get when you don't check in daily. LOL
