Infurmediate Flyball - Weeks 2 & 3

April 6th 2012 7:37 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

I did not bark about flyball last week, bein' distracted with my big campin' trip with the guys! I am gunna fix that right nows!

Last Windsday 'The Wall' got introduced. 'The Wall' is a big piece of wood with a carpeted surface so we don't get splinters in our paws. So we practiced runnin' up to the wall and we are supposta jump up with all 4 paws and bounce off it while our human is usin' a toy to guide us around. It involves sum timin' and coordination on the part of our human. So gots a feelin' I am gunna be limited by the ma's rather unathletic tendencies:( But, you knows, I am not sure how many humans are willin' to do this stuff with their pups, so I am not gunna bash on her about this too much:)

Anywoofs, this week we continued to practice our wall work. I had a little episode and started breathin' kinda funny. Teacher lady said I had a backward sneeze. It was windy this day and maybe I inhaled sumptin. I hadta take a break and got sum water and walked it off. Once I was better we did sum full course work, meanin' we run all the hurdles to get a ball and bring it back over the hurdles again. I am doin' real good with that and understands I should not go around the hurdles:)

 

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Came home today from my furst backpackin' and campin' trip. Boy did I have a grand time!

We started the hike with me on leash. But that was only at the beginning then I got let off leash. Pretty much all the doggies hikin' out there were off leash, so it wasn't just me breakin' the rules! There was lotsa doggies and only one that I ran into that was a bit rude and aggressive.

Dadders and My Boy had real big backpacks on their backs and I had my pack on too. Ours packs made it challengin' sumptimes to get thru brush or walk under fallen logs n' stuff. But fur the most part mine didn't slow me down much. I was my normal quick, little self!

Lunch was pretty good as My Boy balanced his cheeze and crackers on a rock. My Boy says a smurf came out and pushed his fudz over. Well, thank you, smurf, because I gotta eat those cheeze and crackers after they fell on the ground. Yums!

We hiked to a camp area and decided to make camp. We all gotta take our packs off and rest and relax a bit. Unfortunately, no smurfs came around to mess with My Boy's fudz at dinner so I just had the kibble that was in my pack fur this meal.

Pretty soon nighttime came and I was wonderin' where is we gunna sleep. We slept in a tent, which is a very flimsy sorta house. This was very strange fur me. I has never slept outside befure.

Next day we hiked to a place with hot springs. It was about 3 miles away from our camp. The guys left their big packs behind and just brought smaller day packs fur this excursion.

We all went into the hot springs, even me, but, wellwoof, it was just too hot fur a pup. So I opted to stay outta there. Since it was a little smelly, too, My Boy decided to rinse off in a nearby river afterwards. The river water was cold but I joined him in there. Cold water is fine by me!

We spent anofur night sleepin' in the tent, then hiked back to the truck at the parkin' lot. We found our truck had a flat tire! This delayed us a bit, but we got the tire changed and made it on back home. Now we are all weary wanderers and enjoyin' sleepin' in our beds and in our house. Good night!

 

A Campin' We Will Go!

Infurmediate Flyball - Week 1

Flyball class started up again last Windsday! "The Wall" had not been built yet but is supposta be there this week.

We didn't do much new. Jumped over the hurdles and brought back a ball from a static retrieve. A coupla times the ma told me to 'bring it' a bit too soon which made me loose concentration and I dropped the ball. She is workin' on her timin':)

Seems four outta the 7 of us from beginning flyball has moved on to infurmediate. Kensey is a Shetland sheepdog about 16 months old. She is one cute little pup! Shasta is a black lab like me! She is a therapy dog and about 5 1/2 years old. Shadow is a Belgian Tervuren.(Ma thought he was a GSD) He is already workin' with a flyball team.

We did not see Murphy, an Australian Cattle Dog. Towards the end of beginning flyball, Murphy was showin' sum signs that maybe he was gettin' a little stressed out. He nipped at a volunteer that was supposta be holdin' him back while his mom ran away with his toy. But I can't blame him! I was a little taken aback by this exercise, too! Some stranger holdin' me by the hips?!

We also did not see Milo, not sure of his breed. He was doin' real well in beginning flyball.

Also, Sophie, a Wheaton Terrier, was not there. But her dad is already involved with a flyball team and they hadta miss sum of the beginning classes due to other commitments.

Woofs! What alotta diffurent pups we has met at flyball!

Wellwoof, there is no flyball class tomorrow as we are takin' a break in between beginnin' and infurmediate!

But here is a description of what is to come:
In the intermediate class, we’ll introduce the “wall”, where we teach the dogs to do the “swimmer's turns” that will make retrieving the ball from the box more efficient and effective, as well as less stressful on their joints.

Hmmm, the wall... sounds a little scary, don'tcha think?!

 

Again?! Yippee!
