Seriously, Syd is coming along really well in agility. She is getting better at taking my cues, and we are running some pretty complicated excellent courses at our class, broken down into two or three parts. We have lots of work ahead of us, but I'm really thrilled with her progress, and the confidence that she has gained from agility. Sometimes when our classmates clap and cheer for her after a run, I think she looks pretty proud of herself, all smiles and wags. :-)

Hey if you get more than one applicant, can you send one to Minneapolis for the curly girl-Rinnie really wants to get started on her gility career.

I've been looking for a long-legged kid to keep up with Inca. I already know there is no one who will be able to keep up with Chase -- he's going to be a distance-working agility dog. The dogs that love agility, REALLY love it, and it's so much fun to watch them race through the course. I can't wait to see Syd in action.

Well Sarah, how about ya'll move to Oregon? It's prettier here ;0P

I keep joking, by the time I can AFFORD to do agility, I'll no longer HAVE knees, or my right hip so won't actually be able to run! LOL
