Agility Tongue Twisters

SUMMARY: Fun with running orders.

Sometimes just noticing patterns in the names in the running orders can be fun.

Sometimes it's the sounds.

While we're waiting to run, I often chant the names of the dogs before us in order so that I remember exactly who we're after. This last weekend, Boost most often ran directly after Kist and Kick, so I chanted "Kist, Kick, Boost!" while tugging with Boost, waiting our turn. I discovered quickly that that makes a fun tongue twister:
  • Say all three names in a row.
  • Say them faster
  • Say them as fast as you can.
  • Now say them as fast as you can, multiple times in a row.
When I speed up, I can't get past a couple of times. Now you try.

P.S. Another fun factoid: In this list, Beck and Bette are Boost littermates; Roulette and Quas are half-siblings from mom Tala; Sweep and J.B. are nephews. In the 26" (not shown), Rowdy and Quik are half siblings; Tonic is full sibling from different litter. Other close relatives were there, too, and maybe even some in this list but I can't keep them all straight. Boost has a squillion more close relatives than I do!
