a bout last week

And on a counta
Agility iss a berry complecks sport,
and takes some time teu learn
Yeu whill nebber be far behind.
I promise.

First fings first, ass all ways...

It is imp portant teu check fur new messages
what might haff been in adbertently lebt along the way...

Ok the Mom the Trainer...
Here is the gate teu
The Business Yard

Once in, all I what teu deu is look out!

And I am berry habby teu rebort that

on my hamsum head.
Ebber whant teu send the Mom
the Trainer in teu a tail spin???
Juss putt a sbot ob some fing on my hamsum head.

Crisis abverted.
My head is wunts a gain clean...
on a counta the Mom
pushed past the Trainer
and cleaned my sbot!!!

Now here whee are all
getting busy on
The Agility Field
Teu warm up...
we start off wif
Flat Work
or loose leeash walking
wif halts.
Whee start on the left
and then all so work on the right.

And then whee moob teu some
Tire Jumbs

I whas not scared ob it,
but I did naught right a way under stand
what the Trainer whanted me teu deu wif it...
butt once I jumbed frew and got a treat...
I did whant teu deu it ober and ober.

Neckst in my rotayshunwhas
The Plank or Teeter Totter

Fun plan or teeter totter phot from the web
This whas naught my finest moment.
I juss get whay teu ecksited when I know
there is a treat at the end ob the teeter.

Whee did naught work on tunnels,
butt I did try teu go frew this one.
The Trainer stobbed me and took a photo.
This here iss the group I whas working obstackles wif...
a Border Callee and a PortyGeese Wadder Dog
and right here whee were working
The A-Frame...
Whee did this sebben times
when the Mom the Trainer a nnounced
that the Reufus needed a drink break...

In fack, I did need a drink,
butt the Mom the Trainer all so did feel a knife
in her figh muscle
on sprint four.

All the way teu the water bowl, the Mom the Trainer says teu me...
Play a long, Reuf... Play a long.

Ok wif me.
I enjoyed my drink...
and whee returned teu deu four more runs at the A-Frame.

And then whee were teu bring out
Our Contack Planks
what our the Trainers haff construckted this past week...
Whee are all so in formed that
thiss whill be a shabing be habe-yeur ecksersize.

Ah Oh.
And here goes.

Here iss the beginning ob me
trying teu figyeur out what I am teu deu.

I am remembering my prebious classes.
I did so lubbs the ecksersize
where I whas treated fur
putting my front feets on the box.
Iss that it???

Ackshewally, no.
It iss much more complecks that that...
much more teu work on....

And this iss when the Mom the Trainer
is required teu pull out her note book
and take good notes.
Home Work
is ass signed.
There were many good instruckshuns conveyed,
requests made and then class whas dismissed.

Now this is when fings got a little interesting...

The Mom was a bout to DIE from pain her thigh,
but she iss a hard headed one.
She all ready feels old and stoopid,
so she whas naught a bout teu let any body
know she whas a bout teu DIE.
She made bery quick work of getting me
and all our crab
[note: the plank, the cooler, the bag and the chair
are not "crab" until the Trainer habbs a knife in her figh]
loaded in teu the trolley
wifout so much as a whimper
or eben the slightest limp.

Butt.... boy o boy whas it a rough ride home.
The misery, the diss comfort. And agony.

I sure hobes the Mom the Trainer
gibbs me chance to wee
be fore the trolley departs fur home teunight!

What a fun class!
What a fun night!
See Yeu Next Week!


  1. Reufus, your description of what you do are priceless, we really think you should put your paw to the grindstone and write a book.

    What a trooper The Mom is, you know the old saying " when the going gets tough , the tough get going" and obviously The Mom is one tough Mom.
    We will be chewing on our antlers and waiting for your next installment.

    Hamish & Sophie

  2. What an awesome class! I love how you got a little sticky something on your head too. That happens to me all the time!

  3. Yay for u and the Mom. And good for all the critters!!

  4. Gosh- you do so much, that I think you would be exhaugsted- but your not!

  5. I am personally excited to see all of the new things you do agility-wise and cannot hardly wait for next week. You are gonna be a great agility guy!

    Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  6. Your agility class brings back such fond memories! I know you are loving every minute of this...except the parts where the Trainer is injured. Hope she feels better before the next class!

  7. Has the Trainer been to her dog-tor to tell him or her about the pain in her leg? She just might want to do that. Maybe she can get some exercises that she can do prior to going to agility classes. All athletes, and now your Trainer is going to be one☺, need to know good conditioning/warm up exercises☺.

  8. Reufus I am exhausted just seeing you! Wonder what your entries are for the BO2012 games? I can sniff a gold in there somewhere.
    Best wishes Molly
