Mikey was on a roll and didn't even hesitate a step going up the A-frame. The only real problem we had was kind of funny. It's dark by the time we start class; they have a great lighting system there, but still. . .dark. And the first time we attempted the weaves, almost at the end of the weaves, was a brace sticking out on the ground, but I couldn't see it, so I stepped on it, which caused the entire set of polls to rock a little, and Mikey said 'Huh?' and popped out. And we retried, and the same thing happened again, and again, until I finally managed to not step on the darn thing. There was also a little minor incident of me leaning over and flipping Mikey's tug toy up in the air for him to grab. . . and he grabbed the end of the toy and part of my boob. Ouch!!And I can't tell you how nice it was to have chilly weather for class instead of humid and hot!
Here are some pictures from our weekend practice session. Nothing really went wrong, but it was just one of those days when Mikey and I couldn't sync. Thanks again Cardigrandma for taking so many great pictures.
Off to bed.
Holly and Mikey say 'Hi'.
And my dad and the awesome Meg.
And the awesome Holly - don't tell her that she's not still an agility diva! 'Cause she'll tell you otherwise!

As much as I feel like it's good to make myself go some times when I'm having bad joint pain, tonight is different; I just want to curl up with Holly and Mikey and enjoy the first blast of cool air. We had a great walk on the bayou. For some reason, I am a complete sucker for cold(ish), windy, cloudy walks (or better yet, a hike in the woods). Tonight was perfect, cold enough to bundle up (and make the kids a little crazy), but not cold enough to make your ears or hands hurt. And boy was it gusty on the bayou. I love it when the leaves go hurtling by and the trees do 'the wave'.
Also, there's a tree branch that rests on top of a street light on the street behind me; in really windy weather it scraaaapes and screeeeeches back and forth on the light. I can't decide if it's really annoying, or kind of neat. Luckily I can't hear it from the bedroom.

And when I got home at lunch he was hardly lame anymore. And when I got home at the end of the day, I knew I was going to have trouble keeping him quiet tonight. Guess it was just a muscle that had tightened really badly overnight. I knew he was overdoing it last night! I need to do a better job of just stepping out of class when my dog looks done in; he's my responsibility and if he's not fit enough to finish class then we need to stop!!
So, to Mikey, 'Don't Do That!! Frightening the Cardimom is NOT allowed!!'
