Rem and Jake have Class

Backfill: Dec 21 Took both Remington & Jake to agility class tonight for the first time since October (and the last time for this year, since the next 2 Wed's are xmas & new years). Rem couldn't decide at first whether his foot was bothering him, but he looked like he wanted to run. So I gave him 2 or 3 chances on the first course, a jumps-only course, using 12" jumps, and he finally decided that his foot did NOT bother him and that he wanted to be an agility dog! Started off only moderately fast but picked up speed as much as he was comfortable on a fairly soggy lawn. Didn't run him a full class, but he didn't want to go back into the car when I switched him with Jake.

Jake ran beautifully for almost a full class worth of runs. SuperJake is back! No signs of pain or discomfort on his foot at all, confirming what I've been seeing in the yard the last few short weeks. Hooray!
