Dear diary-

Well, last night was the second class in my third Agility class...Well that sounds a little bit confusing...Well, I'm in my third 7 week class, lets put it that way! Last night Mom was very proud of me! My Agility pal is Daisy the Maltese and we are the only "small" dogs, and we always get to work together! So we got to start with the weave poles. I still need the wires on them, but I only jumped over the wires a couple times, after that I was going super fast through those poles!
Next up was the dog walk. You run up as fast as you can, walk on the thin board that is straight, then back down, but slower because at the end you have to "touch"- two paws on the dog walk and two paws off, still working on that one though! But I did pretty good, off leash I only ran past it one time, and the rest I ran right onto it and kept going!
Next was the hoops and pause table. You go through two hoops off leash and jump onto a table that is raised off the ground a little bit, then you sit or lie down and hold it for at least 5 seconds. This one is probably the hardest for me, but luckily I will not have to do the pause table in competition.
And finally was the hoop, shoot, and hoop. This, again, is off leash. You run through one low hoop, into the shoot, and the shoot is half a tunnel and the rest is tunnel but fabric so it is just like being under the covers but running, and then once you get out of the shoot you run to another hoop and go through. I did awesome on this!

Mom'll have to video tape me and the furless sister at Agility class one day and post it on here!

Sincerely,
Iz
