TMO - Agility Mutt

~ Lazy mutt staring at the tunnel ~

Last week, we went to Pet-n-You new training ground situated at YMCA field. Finally, this time, the timing and location suit us well. We won't miss any weekend opportunity right until the big day comes. This was the first time I start training outside from home, since January. I wonder did I get rusty. Hard to tell, cause I spent most of my time there playing a fool and hiding under the shade lazily. Oh, it really piss my owner off. I heard she mentioned that I will be grounded and won't had any food on the next Saturday. Okay, I'm just being me, as expected. Training ground isn't something in my dictionary. But if next week there is sausage available, then I might consider to be a little more 'hardworking'.

Then later, Groovy lend me two of his hurdle. As you can see, the PVC hurdles are painted with blue and yellow strips. It was the official colour for Renault 2006, but this season the colour had been change. Wonder will he consider switching it to orange and white strips. It make me feel to paint my poles with red and white strips too. Two different V8 engine dog with their own lovely DIY obstacles.

As soon as we reach home, training starts again. Tired is never an excuse, cause beside bullying others, I did nothing much at the training ground. Huh!? But I wonder why my owner is still full of energy after a 10km run and 1 hour playing with herself at the field.

Oh Pacco, you're doing very well with the hurdles & especially with the weave poles. I'm okay with it too except that i'm still in the level where I still have to weave slowly(walking). But I'm just as good as you, jumping over high hurdles especially the flyball hurdles...Teeheehee! But definitely my mommy & I myself are not confident yet to join the agility trials. My mommy's worried that I make her look like a FOOL in front of everyone. She blame ME! Now days mommy bring me & curi-curi main the agility & flyball equipment for free at taman desa. the only prob is, it's in the HOT SUN! Oh and why did pet-n-you change the training ground at YMCA Brickfields?

Love licks,

Nice work, keep on practising d jumps with some left n right turns n sharp U-turns so dat Pacco is accustomed to ur body movements. Of course, ur movements need 2 b as clear n smooth as possible, not stiff n jerky.

Also remember 2 pratise on both sides ie. with Pacco on left n right, will b very useful come d trials.
