Today we had final exams at agilites school. I made sure to get there extra early so that I would be mentally prepared.
While Momma helped set up, I got to play with my teacher's new puppy, Dove. She is a lovely little golden gal, but she wasn't much interested in me.
Then it was time for our big test!
My teacher, Mike, said that to graduate we had to be able to do lots of different obstacles one right after another. Us doggies were sent outside to play and the people did something called "walking the course" and Mike told them where to turn and stuff so that we wouldn't get confused.
Are you ready? I took movies of me and my pals doing our final exam runs. That's my teacher, Mike, in the wheelie chair. He sure can motor around in that thing and he competes in agilities too with his Spinone dog, Paxton.
Watch the movie by clicking here. Please ignore momma talking to me when Taj is in the ring. I get kind of excited watching her run around and sometimes don't sit and stay like I am supposed to. My turn is about 2:45 in (but you will want to see my friends too, right)?
Um, can you tell we all FAILED? Little Dallas, the Pappy Yawn is going to transfer to short dog agilities, but my friend Taj is going to repeat beginner agilities (again) with me.
When we got home, Momma had a surprise FOR ME! She said it was supposed to be a graduation present, but, well, what can I say, she messed up showing me where to go so we flunked out.
But I got to open my pressie anyway and it turned out to be from the best store in the world.
Hey, back off, this is MY present!
I supervised while Momma assembled the contents. What could it be?
JUMPS!!! FOR ME!!! Oh Boy!
Naturally, the Relentlessly Huge wanted to get into the act and I have to admit he did pretty well for a big guy.
Check it out!
He likes it! Who knew?
Mango the agility mastiff?
Out of my way! I am jumping here! WEEEEE!
What a super present. I am in lab heaven. Let's go jump some more!
