Dahlia shows off her agility moves!

It's such a gorgeous day outside and nothing was going on in our local park. So we brought out the jump and the tunnel I bought ages ago (which is awesome -- seriously SO worth the $24!) and set it all up. We did this mostly as a photo shoot, but it was also great fun for Dahlia!

The first thing I did was to set Dahlia up in front of the jump. I turned around and saw THIS look. I'm so glad David got a photo of it.

(The bottom looks kind of weird and crooked because one of the bars of the jump was there.)


Dahlia looks up at me while I get her into position.

We started with the bar fairly low. She had to jump, but it wasn't a huge jump.

She cleared it rather easily.

So then we raised it up quite a bit. As you can see, she cleared THAT rather easily too. Go Dahlia!

Then we pulled out the tunnel. It can extend to 18 feet and bend, but we're not quite ready for it to bend just yet, so we left it out mostly extended and straight.

We went back to the jump for one last try.

And then got this!

Awww Mom I'm tired.

After that, she just basically collapsed into a puddle of Dahlia and we packed up and headed home.

That would be awesome! Would this be with Bowser? He would kill people with cutenes out on the agility field! All that fluff going over jumps! SO CUTE.

David takes awesome photos. His camera is really good so I'm totally jealous!

Oh definitely, Moose is waaaay far off in the obedience department. X)

But I will have to wait and see how long before he can be THAT active after having a broken paw. It amazes me how sloooooooow the healing process is with paw bones. :( I have to keep reminding myself he's got broken bones.

Aww I know. How's he doing with that? Coming along slowly, eh? A lot of little bones there to heal. It has to be frustrating! Poor little man!

It looks like she was having as much fun doing it as you had watching her.

She was having a BLAST. I'm so glad she's loving it this much!

I so wish I could take credit for these photos. LOL Alas, David took them. I was the one who ran her through the agility stuff so he could get the photos. I wish I had my camera out but there was no way I could run her through the tunnel and over the jump and still take pictures!

Once my Disability $ clears, I'll be taking Abby out to learn obedience and agility. She has tons of energy and is perpetually bored, since Josie is on the road and I'm broken. These kind of activities would completely bliss her out! *LOL*

Also, what kind of camera does David have? I'm in the market for a decent/good digital.

The best thing about agility is that the dogs do most of the work, so even though I'm fat, out of shape, and have asthma, I can still do pretty well with it! lol

David has a Nikon D80, which is an entry-level DSLR. It's a great camera but out of my price range!
