Arrival Story: I got involved in the 4-H dog program where I learned obedience and agility with my dog Rosie ,who is a Jack-a-huahua , and fell in love with it.Rosie is a great dog ,but is a little shy around people she dosen't know,so she wasn't to comfortable competing.I decided that I wanted to compete in competitions other than 4-H . I asked my parents if I could get another dog.They said that I could if I saved the money to buy one. So I worked hard and raised enough money to get a dog. I decided to get an Aussie,and started looking in every sales paper I could get my hands on . Finally I saw an ad for some puppies ,but the breeder only had one left,a blue merle female. I had originallywanted a red merle, but decided to go and look at her anyway.As soon as we (my Mom,Brother,and I) walked in the door the pup came running up to say hello.As soon as saw her I new she was the one ,and brought her home.Ever since, Bailey and I have best buddies ,and have been competing and doing very well.
poem: Agility Addiction:
You know you're well and truly hooked
When every weekend in the summer is booked
When even your annual holiday vacation
Has become another agility vocation.
You know when you've gone round the bend
When you get every schedule for which you can send
When you've spent every last penny and pound
On your not so good, but loveable hound.
You know when you've gone totally cuckoo
When the accommodation's a tent with an outside loo
When your feet are wet and your hands are cold
And your dog still will not do what it's told.
You know when you're out of your head
When at five in the morning you're out of your bed
When the odds of winning are 500 to 1
But you still carry on doing it 'just for fun.'
You know it's finally taken over your life
When you've covered the distance from London to Fife
When nothing will make you miss your agility session
And you've booked up every type of course and lesson.
You know when it has affected your brain
When you're standing in a field in the pouring rain
When your heart is beating and you're gasping for air
And you're covered in mud, and still don't care.
You know you are certifiably insane
When you study a course again and again
When you are willing to travel mile after mile
For one small rosette that still makes you smile!

Hi everybody, I have some very exciting news to announce, I finished my jumpers with weaves title last saterday, which is like soooo exciting for mom. I had such a good time, and mom was, and still is, very proud of me. Their were four dogs in my class. and I came in second. The times were so close, and I missed first place by one second, my time 28.87, the first place time 27.37, it was so painful for mom, but she got over it. I can't wait for the next trial, which is August 1, when I get to move up into the open, soooo exciting. Well, that's all I got for today, check back soon for updates for the upcoming rally trial, and how I did.
Last saterday me and Mom went to another agility trial and had a good time . We also had a good jumpers with weaves run as well. I was really fast and my time was only 29.72 seconds, ten seconds under the course time. Now all I have to do is get one more qualifying run and I get my title. It snowed the day after the show to, Mom said we got about for inches, and boy was it fun. Me and Mom went played in it with Gus, Rosie,and Mouse. But now the snow is gone almost everywhere ang it is just cold. That's all I got to say today see you next time
Yesterday, I got to do my most favorite thing ever, terrorize the horses. There are a bunch of those thing living around here, and every so often they come down from their leir, a.k.a the hollow, and walk right in front of my house to go to the spring, and yesterday was the day they came down. You would think those things would learn after a while that this is my territory, and that they should find another way to the spring , but no, they just keep on coming down that way. But anyway, I did what I usually do , and went and hid somewhere and waited for them to get within striking distance. Finally one of the beasts came just a couple of feet from me , and I jumped out and scared the thing half to death. As soon as it saw me, it took off running as fast as it could go , but not fast enough to out run me. When I got close enough, I grabed a hold of it's tail and held on. When the others seen what was happening they all scattered at went running every which way except for a young filly. I finally decided that it was time to let go and and get her. She seen me though and took off running down the road before I could get her, but as I was coming back I saw my next target, three stragglers coming down the road. While I waited untill they got a little closer, I planned my attack. I didn't wait hardly as long this time, and when I jumped out, they seen me, stopped, and then took off running with me after them. Then when I was done, I came back to my house and went and layed on the porch, wondering if they had learned their lesson yet, and waiting, so if they did come back I would be ready to get them again.
