Master Snooker

I took my dogs to a trial this past Sunday. So much fun to spend a morning with friends, and run my dogs. I only entered Zephyr in one run, Master Snooker. I was late and got behind for a bit but as usual red dog saves it! I just love playing agility with him!

Master Standard Trial

Ahhhh, I just love my red dog! I know I have said it so often, but I feel so blessed to be on this journey with him. Agility just makes it more fun, an added bonus.
I went to a small evening trial last night and had a great time. Great conversation, some nice courses and a couple good runs. I got three runs on tape, here are two of them, the other I messed up then Zephyr had another contact issue (high, happy and lacking self control!!) so I trained in the ring. It's too bad that the second run on the video did not show up well enough, because it was such a nice run. However you can still get the idea from the video.
I am shocked at how fast he is moving still at his age, able to cut the SCT in half!!! Run red dog run!! It feels good to click with him....I could never grow tired of these moments running him.

The Pool is Open!!

Happy days when the sun is shining and there is water to play in...even if we're just visiting!

Dueling Border Collies

I was having a little fun training yesterday....and I was curious to see which dog really was faster. I guess I should have rerun to have clean drills...rather than post my errors. And in all fairness to Zephyr, those first two drills, his tail brought the standard down...not knocking bars with his feet. I am still shocked at how fast Zephyr can move at 10 1/2!!!
And the credits....well it's in the movie!

Zephyr in Paint!

I was going to post about this last month when I received this beautiful painting from a friend but I had hoped to get it framed first. That has not happened yet, so I thought I would go ahead. Zephyr painted by my friend Shannon Darch from Animates. BEAUTIFUL!!!
