Twitch and I had an agility trial this past weekend. Saturday went pretty well but Sunday was less than spectacular. After a good Jackpot run first thing he began to stop and sniff. He didn’t get his weave entrances all weekend and only did his 2o2o contact on the Aframe once! And we had 4 Aframes on Sunday. It was a frustrating weekend to be sure. I need to stop fixing stuff and forget about the Q. I think fixing things when I am nervous makes him worse. We did ok with 4 Q’s out of 8 runs so not bad but not the 7 or 8 we have been getting.
So to top it off I turn 40 tomorrow. Kind of hard to believe it’s been that long and I’m that old now. Actually, based on timing and where I was born I may already be 40! Lol. Anyway we are doing a low key night tomorrow and then a big party on the 21st. I’m looking forward to it.
My agility classmates got me cake, a card and a balloon. Shelby got me these cute shoe charms that say ‘He’s a baby dog’ and ‘Run fast, Run clean’. 🙂 They will be my mantras from now on and remind me to have patience.
