    DefaultMurray is freakn' NUTS! - update at the top

    Wahhhh...Essy is in heat. I knew we were cutting it close. I was just hoping she make it thru the weekend before coming in. At least I entered Murray or else Meghan would be staying home too. I guess Essy will have to wait until next time.

    * * * * * * * * * *
    My daughter has agility class with Essy on Mon nights. She is going to run Murray and Essy in a USDAA jr handler agility trial this Sat so we brought both dogs to class last night. Now remember, Murray is the very definition of a mama's boy. When Meghan has run him before he was always unsure of whether to go with her or not so I have to stand where he can see me and sternly tell him to go with her all the while he is walking away looking back over his shoulder at me.

    Fast forward to last night. Meghan starts out the night running Essy. Murray is at my feet barking, crying, whining, lunging while they are trying to run the course. : I had to make him do puppy sit ups just to keep him from yanking my arm out of the socket. He has never acted like this over agility before? Dock dogs?...yes. Agility?...no.

    Finally it's Murray's turn. He has worked himself into a frenzy and can barely contain himself now. Meghan sets him up at the start line and tells him to stay as she leads out. He is shaking like a leaf barely able to contain himself AND still whining and crying. : She tells the trainer "I've never seen him this crazy before." I'm even a little worried about what is about to transpire. Meghan gives Murray his release word and he takes off like he's been shot out of a cannon over the jump and into the 12 weaves weaving like a maniac. I wish I had a video of it. It was pure poetry in motion. They finished the rest of the course and Meghan was exhausted. I think she was behind the entire time. She doesn't have to run that fast with Essy yet so she's out of practice. Murray definitely makes her work for her money. ;D

    I can't wait to see how they do this weekend. I'm hoping for their first Q.

    Actually they are doing agility on Sat then on Sun we are taking both dogs to their first beginniner hunt test training. Now I'm more than a little afraid of how Murray will act there...water, retrieving...this should be interesting.

    What a bummer.
    Are you not spaying her?

    I haven't decided yet. I would like for Meghan to show her in jrs which she won't be able to do if Essy is spayed.
