My wife and I have this beautiful but crazy Collie and we have been working hard to train her to compete in agility competitions.
Like you see at Crufts with the see-saw and jumps and weaves. Oh, and tunnels. She loves tunnels. My wife is really the driving force and does the hard work of running the course with the dog, directing her where to go and when etc.
I do the daily dog walks, throw a lot of balls and film the training, do the driving etc. I am like the corner man in boxing, I was thinking today.
Anyway, yesterday was our first competition proper. And my orsm wife and crazy quirky collie came 5th in her class out of 20 or so (novices of course).
Best day I have had for ages; beautiful sunny day in a beautiful part of Wiltshire with loads of lovely dogs (and some of the people) to meet and to see how amazing my wife and dog are, working together.
Oh, and the dog also helps me with fixing the car as you can see in the picture of her reading the manual and getting cross because I disagreed with what she was saying the problem was that day.
Hope everyone has as good a weekend as possible. Best regards to all of you lovely people here. Only place I know anyone understands what I am on about regarding my poor old Ma and her COPD.
