Agility trial

Hi Kids!

Man, we have been b-u-s-y!!!  We have been doing a ton of agility trials lately.  And, one of our friend's mom took some great pics of us!  Wow, we were so happy and thankful for that!

Here is me coming out of the tunnel.  I gotta tell ya. I love tunnels. 

They are so fun, and you can get some super-sonic speed in them, too!  This is my mom's favorite pic of me, almost ever!  She says that it looks just like me, attitude and all.  I always run with a smile on my face, because I like to be with mom and do agility.  Although, mom and I don't always agree on what we should be doing. BOL.  Tough mom.. I am going to do what I want and there is nothing you can do about it!

Anyhooo, I got some qualifying runs that weekend, and finished up a title.  What fun.

Zorra takes an entirely different approach to agility that I do.  She thinks of it as serious work!  Like WTF (where's the fun?)!  She always has a very focused look on her face and very serious.  B-O-R-I-N-G, Zorra!!

She's also an over achiever.  Look how much air she got there.  She is just trying to suck up.  Groan....
I say.. skim over the top.  Cuts down on drag.

Then, I cut back the other way...  still keeping the drag low.  Less energy that way!  More energy for trash talking other dogs. BOL!!!

But, not for Zorra.  She's just one of those girls you wanted to kick their XXXXX (censored).  I don't know what she was thinking on this first jump, but it is like Michael Jordan time or something. Gimme a break!
She's running full out for this one.  I guess she's going to see if she can fly, again.  
See, she never smiles.  What is up with that.  She and I are gonna have a little chat!
Well, our friend's mom had to run with our friend during Sammy's runs, so no pics of him.  But, we just came back from another trial and the lady took a bunch of him.  So, stay tuned.  I am sure the bratty boy will have a ton of things to say.

Lovely to see you in action Katie - you certainly do look as though you enjoy agility.
I think Zorra is aiming for high jump!

Love, pats & pets to all

Wooos! Great shots. I see Zorra is like Scampi, my BC, he think he must soar over the jumps, even when they are only inches off the ground, me, I prefer to step over the small ones. I like your smile! What a happy girl...

Whoa! She looks like she should be jumping 30", the way she's clearing those bars!

Congrats on your title! We are an aspiring agility team and hope to compete in the not-so-distant future.

Oh, and thanks for sharing the pics.. I love seeing dogs on the go!
