The Weekend Report: A Bad Day at Agility is Better than a Good Day at Work!

I was off work last Friday, and attended the first day of a three day agility trial. And while my blog post title implies that it was a bad day like the old saying "A Bad Day at the Beach is Better than a Good Day at Work" , it was actually a really fun, successful day. It was a small trial thanks to being a work day for lots of people and it ran small to tall, meaning Jimmy and I were finished early in the day. The weather was very nice so we got to enjoy outdoor time on the second half of the day.

The first run of the day was our Standard run. It wasn't too tricky. My only worry was an off course tunnel at the end of the dogwalk. Once we were past that, we sailed cleanly through the rest of the course. Jimmy earned first place and 29 more points. This was also his 10th leg in Masters Standard Preferred so he earned a new title as well! Yay, Jimmy!

Here's our run......

Not much of a wait later, it was time for Jumpers. This one was a tricky course. I walked it for what I thought would be best for Jimmy, and not necessarily what seemed best for me. I decided I would just trust Jimmy to do his job, and go with the plan. Very happily it worked out well. Jimmy read my cues perfectly and we finished successfully again. It was also a first place and 20 more points.

Here it is.....

And maps for anyone who likes that sort of thing ;-)

And ribbons......
