The ma regrets not startin' my diary when I was a pup during my obedience/CGC trainin'. So we's makin' up fur that by chroniclin' my flyball lessons.
Yesfurday was my 2nd time comin' to the Human Society of the Silicon Valley, that's where my flyball classes are. But I whined in happiness as soon as we turned into the parkin' lot! I know that is a good place from just one previous visit!
Anywoofs, furst we all stood around in a circle while the lead human lady talked...blah, blah blah. I whined a bit to stop the yackin', I was very eager to get started! Then we showed that we knows how to tug on a toy! Now that was fun! We brought my frisbee shaped like a squirrell and I am a very good tugger! We just gotsta work on the STOP tuggin' command. That I'm not so good at.
Next we jumped over two hurdles like we did last week. Only they were a little further apart this time. I knew exactly what to do and jumped those hurdles lickety split! I now has the nickname of 'Black Lightnin'!
Lastly we did an exercise of 'static' retrieves. This means gettin' a stationary object and bringin' it back. Sum dogs only want to retrieve a ball in motion. I had no problem with this exercise either, except once I did not see my own ball and went for another dog's ball instead. Oops! But not a big deal, another dog did that to me later in the class, too!

Good Job on the Flyball!
Great job on Flyball, sounds like fun!
Sounds like you had fun in class!
I think you will be teaching them soon !!
I LUV frisbee, favorite toy ever. Love chasin it and bringin it back, but I love tuggin and not givin it back. How did you learn to stop tuggin it?
Destiny, we're workin' on the stop tuggin'. It's kinda hard to explain how I'm learnin' it. But treats are involved!
Growlmy is proud of you, Pepper, Me too!
Growlmy would love to get me to bring back a ball...but while I chase them I keep them about 99% of the time! BOL!
I wouldn't do too well at this game like you, though jumping over hurdles would be fun!
