This weekend, Ender went to his first ever dog agility trial! 

We didn't qualify, but we had a blast in Novice JWW both days. 
Rika also got to handle a beautiful long-haired mini dachshund, in Masters JWW on Sunday since his owner was off doing important vet school things, and surprised her with not only his 8th Q but a first place ribbon also! 

Overall it was wonderful to see my two vet school friends, their dogs, and just have a good time with the two of them and my amazing roommate! A lot of crazy and sad things happened to the four of us this week, so the dog show was just what we needed. 


A silly video of Ender and I if anyone wants to see it. 
It was his first time on a full-sized agility course and I had just started teaching weaves about three weeks prior so I knew we would struggle there, but we did this mostly to see our friends and give him a good trial experience which I think he definitely had. 
(the last jump was not on the course but Ender thought he should play with it anyway. It wouldn't be agility with Ender if he didn't knock something over)
  • Listening to: thunderstorms
  • Watching: Sweeney Todd
  • Playing: doodle
  • Eating: cheese and crackers
  • Drinking: margaritas
I just got back from a three day trial with Ender. There were 5 rally trails in 3 days and he managed to earn the last leg toward his Rally Novice title AND all three legs needed for his Rally Advanced. That's two titles in two weekends. Those two weekends also happen to be Ender's first two dog shows ever. I couldn't be prouder of my little kennel flunkie!!!!! He is becoming quite the show dog and it's lovely! :heart:

At least someone in this house can put letters after their name now. Kennel flunkie first, then hopefully someday soon Rika herself. ;)
