    DefaultSophie's first agility demo (5 photos added)

    we were at a county fair doing an agility/dogsports demo today - this was Sophie's debut with this team, and she's a ROCK STAR. There were three sessions through the day, with agility, musical mats, frisbee, high jumping and freestyle obedience. We did everything except the frisbee and freestyle. The agility was fairly straightforward and simple courses - two were circles around the outside, the third was a figure 8 pattern. The ring was marked with just ribbon tape, so the spectators were right on top of the ring with little barrier. There were also pony rides in the ring beside us. But Soph ACED all the courses, ignoring the ponies, ignoring the people except for one round when she had to run a line of jumps right toward a family with kids, and she locked in on them and started veering away.. BUT i was able to recall and bring her right back in to finish the course.

    Musical mats - well, her stays are terrible, but we had fun there.

    High jumping - that was a blast, and little miss "I had trouble jumping 22inches at my first trial" was able to clear 7 poles - I'll have to find out how high she was doing, but it must have been nearly 4 feet, and she was doing it with STYLE. She was a huge hit with the crowd.
