Four Words You Never Want to Say in Dog Agility

Where.  Am.  I.  GOING???!

Yup, that's what I said during this run with Rocco on an AKC JWW (jumpers with weaves) course. We were running for our Excellent title.

But, alas, I got a bit turned around and Rocco stopped as if to say, "Mom, figure out what it is you want to do and let's get this show going!"

Take a look for yourself...

Rocco ran brilliantly, and after the nice judge said to me, "try the double," we both ran the course perfectly!

But that's the fun of agility. You never know what will happen!

The good news is, we feel pretty good that we'll get our title someday...  since Rocco rocked it!  Now I just need to remember the course!

We have a few more trials coming up in April, so we'll have more chances to run and get back in the groove. It's been a long winter off from competing. Stay tuned!

What do you think Rocco was thinking during that pause in the action?
Let us know in the comments below!

The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and My GBGV Life to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!).

Jane Lynch, ASPCA and Febreze Join to Tackle Noseblindness

Does your house smell?

Have you  ever walked into someone else's house and you could smell the distinct odor of... oh... wet dog, or maybe something worse and indescribable?

Or, what really gets me... have you ever gotten into a friend's car and it smell's so bad you want to gag?!

The thing is, your friends (or you!) may not even be aware they suffer from...


It's a condition (and an epidemic, I hear) that occurs naturally over time when a person becomes accustomed to surrounding smells, whether it's a dog bed or kitty litter box, and can no longer detect those odors -- but their guests can.
