I hope you had a fun-filled weekend! My weekend was certainly....eventful. LOL! A lot has happened in that span of three days, so I'm going to see if I can blog about it objectively...*wink*
Let's see...on Saturday, Mom went to watch the Malaysian Kennel Association (MKA) Agility Trials without me! *pouts* She said it was so fun to see the doggies running, jumping, going through tunnels and stuff to get the fastest time....Man, I so wish I was there! She said she was THINKING about sending me for agility classes, but then thought better of it since she thinks I am 'unpredictable' when I'm off leash...pfft!
Not many photos were taken from the trials coz Mom was too busy watching the doggies do their thing in the ring...but I managed to snag one:
Needless to say, I didn't win anything....LOLLLL! I only managed a pass, but it's quite a good experience I guess. Mom got some pointers from the fellow handlers and trainers about how to train me more effectively, and the judge was very nice to let her know of our team's weaknesses so that we can work on them! We lost a lot of points during the heeling exercise, all thanks to moi who can't stand the leaves and twigs stuck on my legs' fur and started squirming on the ground....*grins* Mom had to drag me a little, and the judge even halted the exercise for a while so she can get the 'disturbances' off me and continue the exercise. Even then, I was distracted by the smells around...I kept sniffing the ground and didn't pay attention to Mom. So, those were the few corrections we need to make to get a better score. =)
One of the funnier things that I remember was the judge asking Mom if I was a show dog...pffft!! I could only WISH I was! LOL! Maybe it's coz of my long fur...Mom's friend suggested she cut off my long fur before the trials so that I won't get too distracted, but Mom is quite reluctant coz she likes my long fur...*shrugs*
For the other exercises, they were not so hard...my Stays (Stand, Sit & Down) were good, but for the Recall exercise we lost a few points because Mom had to give me a second command for me to come...all because I was not paying attention again. Haha! Mom got a video of us doing the exercises thanks to a friend of hers who helped Mom record it...so, I'll upload it and let you see how I messed up. heh! It was rather funny looking back at it, but it wasn't so funny at the time...=\
After our turn was done, it was photo taking time! *grins* Mom didn't really take a lot of photos here too coz she was mesmerized by the other doggies who did exceptionally well in the other classes, but she did get a few:
