Day 2: Agility

Today was possibly the world's longest agility trial. We got to the site at 7 a.m. and back to the motel at 8 p.m.

There was only 1 ring and they had all the normal Std. and JWW classes, plus FAST and T2B.

Our Std. Run was great, minus the table, which Phoenix thought was a great impediment to running the rest of the course.

T2B was super fun and JWW was a riot. I called it a NASCAR course - go fast, turn left and don't slow down for anything!

Turned out, Nix was the fastest malinois to Q in both T2B and JWW and got special prizes from the ABMC. Overall he was 2nd in both classes but our national has all-breed agility and the 1st place winners were a weim and a terv, respectively. It was nice to have the recognition.

Jamie made friends with a little mal girl and wants to trade Phoenix in. Phoenix is collecting tennis balls - found one under the bed at the motel and won 2 today. Karene hasn't tried to catch a bus back to Iowa yet. We're all good.

It's past time for bed. Tomorrow we get to do it all again!


  1. Good boy Phoenix!!! Glad to hear you are having fun.

  2. Glad you are having fun! Enjoy!
