Having grown up in the country with a large yard, when we bought the house, I rued how small a yard it had. Soon enough, after adding trees and beds, mulching, trimming and mowing became a chore, and I was glad the yard was small. But along came my agility obsession, and I was once again wishing for a large flat yard! Sigh. Luckily, the fabulous training center I use is only a few miles away, so I do have access to the full range of equipment, but only on class night or if I sign up for a private lesson. So, I have to make due with my small yard if I want to practice at home. Yesterday was such a day. The huge storms had passed through my area leaving behind a gorgeous low humidity day.
Here's how my yard looks, set up for some fun.....

I haven't attended an agility trial since my dismal showing at the National Specialty. I didn't get in the one I tried for in mid May, I skipped the 3-dayer over Memorial Day weekend to keep in the good graces at home (if you know what I mean....), so I will finally have one in mid-June. I'm looking forward to trying it again, but mainly just to see me friends and hang out.
