Good Boy!



both boys jumping nicely



“Have you got six plastic flower pots stashed away in the barn?” I asked.
“Yes, why? Are you planting something?”
“And three long bean sticks?”
“What are you up to?”
“Agility training for Rick!”




It took him a while to work out that we wanted him to jump over the sticks rather than run around them but he got the idea in the end.  We had lots of fun and I think Rick enjoyed himself too.  I’ve just got to figure out how to make a see-saw for him now.

    1. That's exactly what I was saying to Rick, were you hiding behind the wall?

    1. It was fun but I think I'm getting too old for this running about lark.

  6. I noticed that both Paul and Rick were jumping. So do I take it that you don't jump anymore :-) ?

  7. I think we can say with certainty that Rick has landed on his feet with you two - lucky dog.

  8. Rick is a handsome guy. What is his breed? He looks a lot like my sister's dog. :) Happy Friday!

  9. He's obviously a quick learner; teach him to do the washing-up.

  11. There appears to be some confusion for whom the jumps are designed. Providing his back is now officially better you could get a higher hurdle for Rick to jump and Paul (and you) to run alongside. I am suprised that Weaver of Grass did not reccommend the verticle posts for The Weave!

    1. Paul's back was better until he slipped on the wet grass this morning while agility training...

  12. What fun ! I'm sure there are some old flower pots somewhere and a few canes. Just need to persuade Inca what to do, without having to actually demonstrate...!

    1. Rick is jumping the sticks now by himself. Paul has stuck some tomato poles in the ground but he is not too keen on weaving yet. It's taking lots of treats.
