Day 2, Morgan Hill USDAA.
Well, we ended up the weekend still in Starters Standard. One issue one day, a different the other. And we had a bobble in MC Jumpers, thingies happened here and there. Banksy gets many, many gamblers points though, and has mostly very good parts of every single run. She missed just one dogwalk, two pole entries, and lowered herself to the table on Sunday this fast.
Which was endlessly slow, channeling the spirit of our dear old friend Hobbes. Oh my. Can I invent a running table?
So, lots and lots of things to practice. We have a long ways to go. I think we have time. We both just want to go go go!
Banksy really, really likes agility, and really, really likes running in trials! She is figuring out manners are part of the whole deal. But still, a long way to go.
Gooey won $50 in Steeplechase and was so excited to do his runs because a piece of cheese at the end! Yay! Hamster noises! The way I run Gooey now is just get ahead and run as fast as I can and this is now his thing. Me in front, yay! Me behind, nope. I think he would like to just do Steeplechase and Jumpers, so I think that's what we'll do. He got a bite of strawberry yogurt after Jumpers for a special treat! He took some walks! Yay!
There is so much me and Banksy have to figure out. I think actually she has it all figured out and I need to figure out how to guide her a little bit more. I don't think I could have ever found a better teammate for me.
