Day 2

Thanks to my car being a complete pain in the ass, we were not able to attend Corgility today. :t

Stupid Mini Coopers. Nothing is ever easy with them.

Day 1

Not a whole lot to report today. We ate a bug, and had zoomies. But, we did complete like 3 obstacles before the huge zoomies - so progress.

Em, as I’ve mentioned before, is easily stressed. I leave her in the crate to walk, and all you hear is her barking bc “OMG SHE’S GONNA FORGET MEEEEEEE”. She does this in class as well, but not to the degree she does in a trial setting. So, when I get back - she’s super keyed, panting, omgomgomgomg YOU LEFT ME. I usually pull her out, we do some tricks, and then boom into the ring. But, something happens as we walk into the ring that “changes”. I can always tell because seconds before I promptly got a sit, and when I ask for one in the ring - she just ignores me. I physically put her into a sit for the 2nd run, and she held it but it’s kinda the principal of the thing. Should just be able to ask.

Our last class, we had a sub who told me not to “lose” her before the ring. I thought I had her. I really did, but again - she’s just not acclimated. So, those couple seconds while she’s walking in and looking around - she checked out. All it took.

Anyway, not upset and not mad at her. Frustrated that I can’t help her more, and I feel a little guilty taking her back to the trial tomorrow but she needs to learn. I don’t know how else to get her over her stress.

In other news, Emma says Go Liverpool, Arsenal, and Di Maria (we don’t like Man U as a team, but we back our Argentinians).

I present, some photos of Emma doing Corgility from our one good run at the Canines for the Cure Texas Agility Shoot-Out.

Look guys, SHE DOES THINGS! JUMPS! TUNNELS! SERPENTINES! (not pictured, but it happened - I swear)

We also have a trial this weekend. I’m not hoping for much, if she does the teeter - I think I’ll be happy. That sounds lame, I know - but you have to take baby steps in new environments and just focus on having fun. (Which Emma will, bc barns = dirt = horse poop.)
