Banksy is 16 months old.



Here's what Banksy likes to do, she could do this all day long. Every day. Maybe with breaks for a run in the forest. Then a nap on the saddle blanket under my desk. Then a swim in the pond. But not all the way to the middle. If I throw the ball to the middle, she thinks that's too far and Otterpop has to go in to save the ball. Otterpop would never, ever let the tennis ball be abandoned to the pond.

I hope we can do this in a trial one day. It may look like I'm running in the movie, but in real life I move pretty slow. Before we start trialing I'd like to run better. I'd like her poles to look better. I'd like her dogwalk more consistent. I'd like her to be about a million times more calm when other dogs are running. I'd like her call to hand to call to my hand even when the tunnel is right there. I'd like her teeter more confident. I'd like her backside of the jump more independent.

There's a lot of agility things to get better! That's a forever thing. Here's to a lot more forever for us, Banksy.

You two look great! What ever happened to don't stress? :) Her DW looks 1,000 more consistent than a lot of dogs in RC at this stage of this game-and she isn't ever trialling yet! She's a natural. :)

We are both stressed out a lot! I broke her dogwalk last week but fixed it, we have a long ways to go! But it is one of her most favorite things for sure!

suspect by the time you can run she will be ready to try out the ring. and she has grown into her tail!!

Oh you look so much better than when even getting dressed was a chore and a grocery run was all you could do in one day. I'm sooooo glad. Banksy looks like she knows what she is doing and you have your clicker timing DOWN.
