I had so much fun this weekend. It was a tiny trial full of very nice and fun people. That is the big thing I've missed about USDAA in this area--the atmosphere is always AWESOME.

Panic ran wonderfully. I'm so pleased with him. The rubber-infill turf there is very nice, and I think the rosin/chalk powder helped him out quite a bit--the only run I didn't use it for was Steeplechase Round 2 and while he still ran well he did noticeably slip and knock a bar in that run, his only bar of the weekend.

It was so much fun to get out there with him again. He really is running great. Despite only running clean in one run, he looks and feels better than ever to me. If we did agility more than once every sixth months I'm sure the consistency would be there. I know that things can change in the blink of an eye, but at this rate I anticipate many more years to come for us. And we can still go down to 16 in the future!

Also wanted to share his Standard run in which he TOTALLY PULLED A BRIGHT and added an extra backside. Good times.

This weekend reminded me why I love agility so much. Good courses, nice people, and runs that left me feeling happy but motivated to train more. One day maybe I WILL be able to train more. Until then, I head back to school on Tuesday. My life is full of so many seperate sections right now, but I'm lucky to care so much about each one of them. Sometime I'll have a life that isn't so broken up.

Nice runs - so fun to see you guys in the ring again! And bonus backsides are always in fashion!

You guys look great. I've been considering doing agility again. It's just that I have no place to train. I'm glad you had a great time.

It's tough for me to get back into it for a bit and then have to leave it again, but hopefully soon I'll be able to do it consistently. I am very lucky in Louisville to have a nice place to train, but most of the time we just play with a couple of jumps in the yard.

You guys looked so good! Oh I love your confidence and movement . So rad.

I liked how Panic made the course extra challenging for himself :)

Yeah, not much flailing on this run! Woo! Panic said that there were not enough opportunities for him to show off on these courses. He also added a backside to our other standard run which I didn't get on film.
