I’ve been trying to write an update post but it’s wordy so here is a less wordy, more cryptic version.
Loki – so much love, jumping skills course – FUN drills so far, looking forward to teaching jump ‘jump responsibility’, dogwalks – ergggg – Loki is going for a ‘true’ 4 stride DW now by extending the 3rd stride. I thought this would work & solve all the problems. Unfortunately he’s too little and even stretching his 3rd stride still leaves him hitting high, but he’s too big for 5 strides. Arggggg. Weaves – erggggg, spring – sun – yay! snakes – booooo, Loki sore shoulder?, Mal got old then got young again when back on glucosamine, canine massage course?, new targeting plan.
Here are photos and videos for your eyeballs!
Here he is going pretty fast at the show:
We’ve been going to the beach these holidays… Loki has decided that rolling in the sand is way fun, even if there’s not something smelly or dead to roll in.
This is a bit older but maybe you’d like to see Lumen, too? (she didn’t go to the Royal Show. It was a bit much for her last year and the courses are too tight). Thanks to Penny for Lumen subtitles on this one. Please note Lumen’s beautiful and never trained turn off the DW. Last time I tried that move with her she jumped off the plank from halfway down so… um.. not exactly consistent, but oh well.
