Obedience Instead of Agility

Heya folks! Yesterday Mama took me out for a run in the woods; good times, good times. The water had rose though and my paws got sooo wet!! Of course, I didn’t complain. Mama would give me funny looks if I complained; learned that the hard way. Anyhowl, didn’t find what I was trackin’. Mama made me go in ‘cause she thought she herd people, but I had to walk on my leash back home, which is no fun at all because I listened to Mama! Why listen then go on walking home on a leash?!
But after that we did some weave stuff. And chute. :D
Over and out,
Bilbo.

Ugh! I don’t know why I forgot, or thought it wouldn’t apply to me, but I may not be able to do agility in 4-H this year. You have to get to a certain level of obedience; Bilbo and I got a red last year, but in pre-agility we did get a blue. It kind of irritates me that they have pre-agility and then you can’t move on. I can see their reasoning, but it doesn’t mean I have to agree with it. ;)

But if they require us getting to a novice obedience level (or out of the beginner circle during practice) I think it may take awhile. Bilbo listens well for a Beagle, I’ve been told, but he’s no star at obedience and I don’t particularly enjoy the classes myself but it does help keep his mind sharp. I’m going to talk to my agility trainers- they do 4-H. I’m going to see if I could take Obedience at Rio Gran, pass the beginners one, and then be able to do agility in 4-H. Some people may argue that because he hasn’t passed our first obedience he isn’t ready for the next agility, but we do go to classes and he has a nice recall and the like. He likes agility.

Well, wish us luck!
