It takes a village, Banksy's first USDAA trial.
How many agility people does it take to measure a little dog with a wicket? Try 2 judges, 6 friends, 4 measuring attempts and about 3lbs of the freeze dried organic turkey gizzards or whatever it was that Karla shoved down Banksy's gullet until Patron Saint of Super Patient Measuring Judges Bill got her measured. One seven point five. We are still in the 18" division.
That was stressful. That totally sucked. However, nothing else sucked about our day. Not the off course tunnel, the off course jump, or the 3 bars. Not my complete brain screwed on backwards handling in jumpers and snooker. All her contacts and poles, wonderful. All of her manners and focus and determination, perfect. Hiking back and forth to our Jetta Sportwagen diesel super polluter crate through rvs and canopies and practice jumps in the 90 degree sun, awesome! All my friends and new friends of the Starters Advanced Ring, so much fun!
We got a Pairs Q with her best frenemy Kirk. That was the best! So not stressful!
It's official. Banksy loves agility. Game on, we are so ready to roll!
