I've decided to let Sammy put up the rest of the agility pictures.  Agility is too much like work for me, obedience is more my style, especially the long sits and downs!

Rio, Glacier, Me, and Jake on the long sit.

Glacier and me on the long down.  Rio and Jake kept popping up so they are not in the picture

And then we got to sit again.

I don't compete anymore, but before I retired, I earned my CGC, my CD, Rally Novice and Rally Advanced, plus passed my therapy dog certification.   Glacier didn't start any obedience until he was over 8 years and earned his Rally Novice title.

My boy Buddy left a comment that he would like to see more agility pictures, so here goes:

Here is the agility field my PA built:

Here are some shots of Mystique going through the tire:

More pictures tomorrow.  (My PA is tired and frustrated trying to put all these pictures in)

Obviously Sammy needs something to do.  He has been running that silly contest (although I guess he has had some responses).  Ever since he has been staying home while Bailey, Sandie and Zoe go to shows, he doesn't know what to do with himself.   He hasn't learned the fine art of being a "couch potato".  There isn't anything to herd here, except other cardigans, and I don't think he can learn to dust and vacuum which would be a great help to our PA.

Maybe he could learn to do agility like Mystique.  But that would be just one more thing my PA would have to do (as if she doesn't have enough to do with all of us).  Hey, Darbs and Pumpkin--have you been doing any backyard agility yet?

If any of you have any ideas on something for Sammy to do, let me know.

Things are back to the old routine.  Since the weather is a bit warmer (not much), all of us do not get to come in every night.  Maybe I can come in tomorrow since my PA doesn't have class (it's Martin Luther King Day).  Unfortunately, my PA will be working from home, since the online courses don't get to have days off.

I went over to Sammy's blog and he has some tomfoolery going on about a contest.  I wonder if anyone will be able to guess the name of the puppy.  Boy, Sammy must really be bored.  I think I need to find him a job or something.

Hope everyone is having a nice relaxing Sunday evening.

Well, it is not very nice outside.  See Sammy's blog, for details.  I had to share the house with the whole crew last night.   I guess it wasn't so bad.  Mom Jolee, sister Zoe, and I got to share the couch with our PA.  I think we were keeping her warm.

The forecast doesn't bode well for warm weather in the near future.  I hope spring comes soon.

I see that Sammy has updated his blog--hopefully, that means our PA is catching up on her duties and activities.  Since Sammy has brought everyone up-to-date, so to speak, I won't repeat all that stuff. 

Sammy did forget to mention that our PA was able to squeeze a dog show or two in--in spite of all the chaos.  In November, Glacier (Ch. Coedwig's Blue Glacier) exhibited in the Veterans Class.  He loves to show (me, I'd rather be a couch potato).   Here he is strutting his stuff at the age of 12.

Does he look happy!

Look at that big grin!!
And then in December, Sandie (Coedwig's A Walk on the Beach), won Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Opposite Sex for her first major.

So that's the wrap up for today.  My PA is planning on being just a tad more conscientious on keeping our blogs up to date.  We will see what we see.
