We had our last beginners class on Thursday, and at the end of class we ran a mini course just for fun. I don't know why I was so nervous we wouldn't move to the next class. Riley exceeded my expectations. I was worried with all the people and dogs around he would lose focus on me and want to go play, but he didn't! He was so focused and eager! I am such a proud doggy mom right now!

As I watch the video I laughed-out-loud about the Table portion. I can't help but imagine what was going through his head.

Me: Table!

Riley: OK MOM! Table means... I, lay down. Focusing on mom, wonder what's next? Must focus......
...Oooo what's that smell?...
....Smells kinda good over here too....
Oh Hi mom! Ready?! Oops, ok back down.

Me: OK! Jump!

Riley: YAY!!!!!!!!!

The intermediate class starts immediately and I can't wait! What can I say? I'm addicted and I'm sure Riley is too!


  1. Good job Riley!
    Agility really is a lot of fun, whether you really want to be serious about it or not!
    I'm trying to decide if this is the Riley from Petfo, I was looking for the ear hair!

  2. Wow! Congrats on the graduation. All we need now is a photo of Riley wearing his graduation hat! :)

  3. Thanks Karen!We had a blast. Indeed he is the same Riley from Petfo, lol just with trimmed ear hair :P

    Thank you Sprollies and BC! I may just have to get my old grad hat out for a picture :)
