Disappointed dog..... and human!

Finn was very excited today, Beryl brought Tansy over to do some training together, ready for Brecon Show on Saturday. we got ALL the equipment out and made a proper course. Here is a sketch of the course we used, 1,5,6,8,9,10,11&13 are jumps, 2 is a long jump, 3 is the seesaw, 4 is a tunnel and 7 &12 are weaving poles.
We spent almost an hour practicing and had lots of fun running and jumping and barking and generally giving the neighbours a bit of entertainment. It would be lovely if some of them would bring their dogs to have a go as well instead of just saying 'Isn't he clever, mine would never do that!' We did the course twice in both directions, changed it a bit and did a bit more until both dogs had had enough then after we put every thing away went in for a drink.

Beryl had just left when the phone rang it was the show secretary to say the show has been cancelled because the ground is waterlogged. We are both really disappointed.

Hi Finn - aww, that is such a shame - we growl at the rain, grrr, we had to have our walk cut short this evening because of it. Down with rain we say!!

By the way, our daft human read the title of your blog wrong initially - at a quick glance she thought it read 'disappearing dog - and human' and thought you'd been getting up to some really bizarre stunts in preparation for the weekend, he he!

Well, at least you're now a master at agility so keep it up and you'll wow them at the next dog show!

Tail wags - JD and Max.
