The last day of my second agility trial was very interesting. I wasn’t really feeling like doing agility. Apparently I didn’t make that clear to Mom before we left, and we were entered into three events.
My girlfriend Luna was also entered in three things, and I do like to go cheer for her, so I figured I’d go along. In our first event, FAST, I got to the start line, and when Mom signaled me to start, I left the ring. That seemed pretty clear. The good news after that was that Luna took first place. Yes FIRST place. She is very good at agility, and her Mom works hard, too.
Next up was Jumpers, and I felt kind of bad about not doing anything at all in FAST, so I decided I’d go over one jump. I did that, and then I left the ring. Luna did really well, but she was a little bit slow doing her weaves, so she went over her allotted time, so neither one of us qualified. That was too bad because I was pretty sure Luna would get another ribbon.
Last was Standard. Again, I felt kind of bad, so I decided to do four obstacles before I left the ring. Luna did ALL of the obstacles, and she took first place AGAIN! It was amazing to watch her do that course so well. I like having a girlfriend who is so talented.
Mom told me that no matter what, she still loves me best. She also said that leaving the ring was better than some things I could have done. I think she may have meant that it was better than biting the judge like a Border Collie in Open Standard (the next harder level) did. I would never bite a judge. Ever. Mom would still love me, but I’d never be allowed to go do agility again, even on days I felt like doing it.
She decided to enter me again for a trial in January. Luna is also entered again, so I know I’ll have fun, even if I’m not feeling like doing teeter or anything else.
