I have not RUN in any agility trial for months but this one came up as one mom and I could not miss out on. It was at Dripping Springs in a new facility and only about an hours drive from our place in Austin, TX.
First run of the day was tunnels and I had great start line stays and followed mom perfectly, but just old girl corgi slow. I am an 11 years old and I have to run as a veteran dog, I’m not sure why since I’ve never served in the military. Since mom wants me to jump 8 inches and not four, I have to run the other obstacle courses as a 12 inch dog. Mom thinks their time is faster than an 8 inch dog so for sure I was to forfeit the number of extra seconds I needed.
I run for fun and only in novice in NADAC so all is good for mom and me.
I followed mom to get all the tunnels in order, just a bit slow, but did get a 4th place ribbon for placing, just not good enough to qualify
Wow, a first place, for placing, but did not qualify with a good enough fast time.
I placed again with a second place but did not qualify with a good enough score.
I was one tired puppy at end of day, but I ran like a good agility pup would and still enjoy it.
Kaley corgi kisses !!!
ps, for those not caught up with news in this house hold, there is a new pup, a cardigan, a lil guy with a tail. We get along and I am getting used to him now…He is a bit bouncy but he is okay! Stay tune to news about his life and times too.
