30 Days of Mallei

Day 13:


Throwback Thursday –

Picture #1 is how you taught your dog to do agility ‘back in the day’ when you were 18 and didn’t know to use PVC to build jumps so just stacked some wood on some other wood and made it like an extendo-jump. Apparently this method works because Mal rarely knocked bars in his career and I’m convinced that all of those would have been my fault for late turns. He’s always been a very natural jumper.


Picture #2 is Mal at 10-11 months looking particularly handsome and youthful.



throwback thursday

Feels like ages since I’ve posted.

There’s not a heap going on. I trained Lu yesterday and tried a new way of handling a front cross but it made her do beautiful straight extension jumping. Mechanics might not have been right so I’ll try it again. Also starting with a really low height and doing some mat targeting, so coming at this ‘can’t collect and/or bend’ problem with a double barrel.

Other ‘life stuff’ is happening, I guess. Been writing a post there but not sure I’ll post it. 

Taking Lu to a rehab vet guy tomorrow just to see if there’s anything actually ‘wrong’ with her that I can ‘fix’ with rehab exercises. 

One month to go until I have my own agility field (and longer commutes). 

Here’s a throwback Thursday to when Lu was Loki’s age (more or less)… I don’t seem to have a heap of photos of her from this stage.

Look at her little flip-down ears and little short coat.
