Anything Jimmy Can Do.......

.....Wilson probably did first!

Since I was reminiscing yesterday, I thought I'd continue today. It is with Wilson that I learned to play agility. He isn't as drivey as Jimmy and didn't take it nearly as seriously, but he was a good, accurate boy. Here's an example of one of his clean runs from way back in July of 2007. Jimmy had yet to even come home to us. I also didn't have a blog back then.

Wilson was a bit more stressed by the agility environment. All the people and dogs in close quarters weren't his favorite cup of tea. Added to that, the poor boy has a bad shoulder, so soundness was also an issue. When the chiro vet said it was best to let him retire, it was a very easy decision. He still gets the last 5 minutes of Jimmy's private lessons to run around the ring. We just don't put in the weekly practice that is needed for trialing.

Have a great weekend, Everyone!
