Yesterday was my fourth session at agility, and Mommy said it was my breakthrough week! I don't know what it was exactly, did I just get it? Or was I more comfortable, or more excited than usual? Either way, after the warm up, I was more than ready to do that teeter (stretched out flat, for us beginners), go through that hoop, and jump over the jumps! Sure, I'm the only pup there with two handlers (Mama handles me, while Mommy runs ahead and convinces/encourages me to come!), but that doesn't phase me, and all the other pups are jealous that I have such a great cheerleading team!
So, to sum up:
I did the teeter three times, and am practicing "floor" so that I don't jump off the apparatus too quickly
I did the tunnel four times and I only turned around to come out once! The last two times I did it, I even did it with a curve in the tunnel, and I ran right through it!
I jumped through that pesky tire at the lowest height, and I did not put on the brakes this time.
I did the weave poles twice. I don't like them so much.
I did the A-frame twice. It's too high for me, so Mama puts me up at the top and I walk down. I don't like that one either.
The breakthrough is that I barely hesitated at all this time! Everyfur in my class is so proud of me, because I don't put on the brakes nearly as much as I did in weeks one and two!
Bark to you all later!
