Fox Valley Agility Trial

I was a very good girl this weekend! I got my AXJ title and took 2nd place on Saturday. Then on Sunday I had my first run in Jumpers Excellent B. I took 4th place and earned my first MXJ leg. I also earned 9 MACH points. The course was a lot of fun! My mom is very happy with me and I got lots of hugs and treats! :)

Unfortunately I wasn't holding my contacts in Standard class on the DogWalk and on Sunday my mom got whistled off by the judge for training in the ring. I thought the whistle meant go to the table so I did, but then my mom said, "Go get your leash" and we walked out of the ring. I was sad because I wanted to run. I also didn't get any cookies for that. :(

My mom took a couple pictures of my new friend Vinnie. He's a 4 month old vizsla. His mom and dad are Pam and Mike. They have a booth at the agility trials and my mom sometimes buys t-shirts from them. His big sisters are Mo and Reggie. They're vizslas too!

Doesn't he have a nice 'down?' He's very focused and will do anything for a cookie, like most of us vizslas. :)

Next weekend I have my very first USDAA trial and all my friends will be there. Fergus, Dylan, Given, Zane and Crush. Good luck to everyone and I'll let you know how we do.

Office Mates

Greetings! I thought on this cold, overcast day I'd share some pictures of the other pups that come into work and hang out with me.

This is me with Shenille posing in Tom's office. She's a 7 year old Doberman Pinscher. We like to chase each other around the office and wrestle on the Oriental rugs but she's a lot bigger than I am!

This is Fellini. He's owned by my mom's bosses' son but Jenna takes care of him. He's a 1 year old French Bulldog. My mom says he's a little stubborn. I haven't met him yet because he's only come to the office once. He peed on my bed and in Larry's office. Larry was really mad!

He looks a little pissed in that one picture! LOL! :)

Such a fun weekend I just had! My mom was home for Good Friday so I got to play in the snow. Then on Saturday I went to support my BFF Libby in a hunt test. My mom got to watch Libby and her mom Hallie run in the field. I had to stay in the car because I wasn't entered in the hunt test but we got to play before her brace went out. Libby did very well and found three birds. She passed to finish her Junior Hunter title.

This is Libby posing with her ribbon. She told me she only did it for the treats! Can't say I blame her. :)

Congratulations to Libby and Hallie! We're very proud of you! And thanks to Aunt Hallie for the yummy Easter cookies.

Sunday was fun for me too. I did a CPE trial - it's agility with lots of games - my mom told me that I was a very good girl. I took 1st place in three classes and 2nd in another. Next weekend is more agility but it's AKC in Fox Valley. Wish us luck!
