I think I've mentioned before that the agility folks in VA are crazy, right? We had class last night - OUTSIDE! When I got home from class, the temp was 34 degrees. Now, having lived in NE for a few years I was appropriately outfitted for those kinds of temps but it was still damned cold. BTW - last year I found an amazing site for insulated coveralls. They are cut for women! The addy is: http://www.shopbodycovers.com/ I have a pair and LOVE them. Plenty comfortable and lightweight enough for running agility or herding.
PuPu did her first big sequence! It was 9 obstacles and included a lowered teeter. I am proud to say she is the only dog in the class controlling the teeter tip by herself. For everyone else, the instructor holds the teeter and then drops it. Pu was awesome - fast, clean and jumping 12" like the bars weren't even there. The beautiful stay I had for herding is eroding though :( Apparently, agility is a lot more fun than herding ever was so she sees no reason to wait to do it. Honestly, I love that but it means we are going to have to spend some serious time on proofing - without de-motivating.
Now to get serious about weaves....
