Both of my boys just love running with me. And I am proud of how great they look out there even when things don't go according to plan... A.K.A the Border Collie Loop. Agilityk9trainer knows that ref as she made it elsewhere. Stuff happens when you do something this complicated, you end up risking getting humbled by dog big time out there. We laugh, we cheer, we squeal in delight, we let others cry on our shoulders when things fall apart... I love this sport because the majority of those running want to see their competitors succeed (you should hear the sympathetic groans that come when a mistake happens!) There are highs and lows and everything in-between and when you start out success often isn't at defined finitely as a Q... there are often mini-goals within the runs we just want to see. If we nail enough of those, the Q's follow.
