We had a USDAA trial (the harder group) this weekend and dad hurt his leg and couldn't run with Duffy and me. Mom said he's falling apart since he turned 40... BOL!!!! Anywho, dad asked mom if she would like to try and run us and she said sure! She was also running Duncan and Doolin, so we all sat back to see how this circus would pan out. As it happens, there were other human friends that stepped in to help run a few times too, but Mom did most of it.
When it was time for us to run she fed me yummy treats and played tug with me and then off we went. The first run wasn't so great, but after that it was better and better. I Qualified in every run after that including Standard! Mom was so excited!!!!! I hit my contacts and sat the start line allowing her to lead out and everything! My jumpers run was a thing of beauty according to her and she gushed all over me when we were finished. It was good cause for a while there she didn't like me so much... Now she is all warm and fuzzy and wants to run me all the time.
She also qualified with Duffy on his Standard run. What is strange is that in 7 years of running agility with this pack, mom and dad have never run each others dogs until last weekend. Dad wants a chance to run Doolin and Duncan now too. We'll see how that goes. First he has to get back to walking straight!
