Another pawbulous day today as I graduated from Agility Training I. I successfully jumped through hoops and over many obstacles in the last two months. Not sure why humans complain so much about all the obstacles and hoops in their lifes. Just get on with it and over it. Next on my agenda is Advanced Agility Training. It should start in July. That’s when “the sparrows fall from the roof” as they say in Holland. Rest assured, we will be early birds to avoid the falling from the roof problem. I know, I know, every obstacle will be higher in Advanced Agility Training, but I’m sure I’m not gonna jump off the roof. No sirree.
You know what else we celebrated today? I seem to have attracted more than 300 followers with my woofanigans. Not bad for an ex-shelter dog, heh?

The tire sure makes me tired

Try to stay out of trouble this week, I will try to do the same
Today is normally our offsite-agility training but since I graduated from the basic class we have to wait until next weekend before we can start with the next series. In the meantime, I registered myself as an All American Dog at the American Kennel Club (AKC). We didn’t know this but since 2009 you can list mixed breed canine partners with AKC. Normally we wouldn’t have bothered to sign up but once you are listed you can compete in AKC Agility, Obedience and Rally events. And we are interested in agility. We are not ready yet but never say never.

The back end of the course
Anyhowls, I am getting off track here. I wanted to show you the tactical training course that was built under Ms. Zulu and my supervision at headquarters. The course requires a lot of jumping through hoops. Life is a bit like that, I’ve heard. We also have tunnels, not the ones I dig, for some reason they get covered up when I’m not looking. I know it’s a waste but what are you gonna do, hey? And no, I did not rip said tunnel. That’s one of M’s concoctions. It now looks kind of like a ruptured colon. I have to say though, all of a sudden I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and breeze through it without a problem. So maybe a ruptured colon is not always a bad thing.
In addition to the tunnel, we have another very “expensive” crawl-station. That station turns into a funny looking tent on cold winter days to protect the Forbidden Fruit tree that I showed you yesterday. Plus, the crawl-station is an excellent device to practice high jumps. Tree logs are helpful too to practice high jumps but we mainly practice our prepositions on them. Of course, y’all know those already, so there is not much to explain there.
Wishing you a Sunny Day; may the sun shine brightly wherever you are,
