On Saturday, I went to my first agility trial. It was so much fun. And although I didn't get a 'clean run', I did get through all my courses with just some minor faults.
Kay was very happy with me - there were just a few moments when I lost focus - like when I saw Neil on the sidelines taking pictures.
But really, it's Kay that needs more work - on her fitness levels, 'cause I was running fast and she was seriously puffing!
See her in this clip trying to get ahead of me to do a front cross, but I just zoomed on and she had to abandon that and just try and keep up - heehee.
I even got the weave poles right, if a bit slow.
In a way, it is a tortoise and hare kind of event... the border collies were just so, so fast - but they often made mistakes like taking the wrong jump and got eliminated. I just came along carefully, did everything in the right order... and ended up with two firsts, a second and a third place.
Go the Airedale!
