My First Flyball Lesson!

I just got home from my first flyball lesson and am completely pooped! I fell asleep on the car ride home, woke up briefly to have a tiny dinner than ran to mom's room and fell asleep on the bed BOL

Class was so much fun though :D I got to meet lots of other dogs, and most of them were even close to my age and size! Then mom and I worked on some directional stuff and she introduced me to a jump. By the end of class I was doing AWESOME and she was even able to send me away to do a jump a few times ... Just a few feet and I was still on leash, but I thought I did pretty good anyways!

At home, I always play with a regular sized tennis ball. I LOVE TENNIS BALLS and will fetch and fetch and fetch for ages! But tonight mom let me play with a little tiny tennis ball. I didn't know what to do with it at first ... it smelled like a tennis ball, and was the same texture as a tennis ball but it was so much smaller! But mom tossed it around a little bit and I finally caught on. WATCH OUT! I'm all over that tiny ball now! I was even able to catch it in my mouth a few times, something I have never been able to do with a regular sized ball. Mom brought the tiny ball home and we are going to practice catching and set up a few low jumps in the back yard to work on my jumps, too.

PHEW! That was hard work ... but I think I'm going to like this game!
