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!
