Sometimes I almost forget that Shiva is Shiva. Some days she is so calm and so focussed I think her wild days are a thing of the past. Naturally, this attitude can’t last long and I am often slammed back into reality. Shiva is insane. Shiva forgets how to use her brain. Shiva’s favourite thing in the whole world is to run around like an idiot while I stand there feeling like we have never taken a single obedience class.
Suffice it to say, today’s standard course in our agility class did not go well. We don’t like standard courses as they require us to take each obstacle in a very specific order. We like gamblers best where we can design our own plan. If Shiva takes a random obstacle, it’s no big deal. If we ever make it to a real-life trial, our first course is going to be a gamblers. That’s a given. They are just a lot more fun.
Anyway, as I sit here going over every little thing I did wrong – as one does after an agility run – I think it is about time I share with you our much-laboured over entry for Pup Love’s Tricks for Treats Contest.
I’ll just say right now, we didn’t get the handstand perfected in time. I am sure you are all terribly disappointed. I know I kind of am. But! We did have a lot of other successes. And, what is far more important, a whole lot of fun!
