Tonight I'm hiding out alone in the apartment. It's very loud here in the city, and I didn't want to leave Panic alone athough he is handling it way better than I thought he would. Historically I would always go to a show for this weekend.

I've been thinking about agility a lot lately. I miss it. I miss it a lot, a lot more than I ever have. I love keeping up with everyone's videos, it makes me super happy to see everyone having so much fun. Doing agility with Panic is so fun and I really do miss it, but I really have to accept that there are factors that are going to prevent us from doing any agility for quite awhile, and that makes me sad. First and foremost is the fact that I really can't afford it anymore. I've always had to pay for agility related things on my own, but when I was younger pretty much all my income was disposable. Agility is expensive and that sucks.

I still peruse the AKC and UKI websites for trials I could potentially go to though, but the other factor is a complete lack of trials (or training facilities) on anything other than turf around here. It's possible that Panic could run ok on a rubber infill surface, but I just can't ask him to do it.

One day I know I'll get back into it. I hope that that time will be soon enough that I can still enjoy many more runs with Panic. We have so much fun doing agility together, a type of fun you can't find anywhere else. In the meantime, I'm very happy to be able to live vicariously through all of you guys.

And I imagine you don't have a lot of disposable time as well. If you do get some time, I'd say GO to a show, even if you can't run. Help out a bit, watch, soak it up. Might help the itch a bit.

I did that at the beginning of June--just made the itch worse! ;) But it was still fun!

I think sometimes you need an extended break from something to enjoy it again. Says the person on an extended obedience break right now!

I'm finding NADAC/ASCA are a heck of a lot cheaper. Not sure how much NADAC you have there though.

Yeah not much NADAC around here and that venue mostly just confuses me.

Yes, agility is an expensive hobby. period. Sorry that you're missing it right now but you will be back. You have so many other adventures to explore (and Chicago) right now that I hope you don't miss the sport too much.

I miss it a lot, but admittedly I'm doing so much other stuff I probably wouldn't have time for it even if I could be doing it! Lots of exciting things happening in my life right now for sure.
