Default Professional Agility Pics from this weekend

But don't worry, they don't come with a copyright. These were taken at a four day AKC Agility Trial in an indoor soccer facility. All of them are of Asher, as the pics for Aslan weren't as spectacular.

It's an honor to run my boys every time I get to. Contrary to popular belief, it isn't about the ribbons!!

These pics show off Asher's speed (Gotta brag on my boy. He tries so hard in spite of me!!). I have a few good blooper pics too.

This is my favorite pic. He's exiting the weave poles and look how his tail is still wrapped around the first pole due to his speed. I'm asking him to flip away from me, and he says, "Got it Mom!!"





Another pic showing his understanding. He's right next to the edge of the ump, showing he is taking the tightest path possible, and he's turning, reading my cues. Good Asher!!




Riding the teeter down. My ideal teeter.



Low to the ground, single stepping poles. The fastest and highly desired.





Another shot of the low, single stepping poles.



The first ump on the course.




At the start line waiting for my signal to go.





Running onto the pause table.

Those are awesome pics! And they sure show how much joy is in the run. I echo the feeling, it's all about the experience of the run. That feeling out there of being one, being a seamless team.

I had the honor of running with Ash this weekend, and I will cherish every hundredth of a second we spent out there... it was just us. The crowd, the stewards, the judge... all of that vanished during the run. It was just a girl and her beloved dog.

He looks great and is having so much fun!
How long do you have to pause? It's not as though you can carry a stop watch!

Thanks everyone!!

Techie,

The pause table is counted down by the udge. They go "5 and 4 and 3 and 2 and 1 and GO!!" You are not to leave until the Go is sounded. So, we pause for 5 seconds counted down by the udge.

I saw a blooper this weekend by a fantastic handler/sheltie team that you would have loved. It was too bad nobody was taping it. It was a good one, and I thought of you when I saw it.

I'm glad techie asked that question. I was wondering too. Too bad we can't see any bloopers. They would be fun to watch.
