Agility Lesson Or Running Away Is Not An Option

I saw this car on the drive to our agility lesson today.  As usual I left early, but got stuck in rush hour traffic in St. Cloud.  Does that town ever NOT have rush hour???
Anyway I thought this car was funny, so I took a picture of it.
It's winking at me AND saying 'hey'!

This is Tibby on the drive home.  We had a fun lesson.  I may have had more fun than Tibby though!  I got to run Loretta's dog Klink.  Wooooo!  It was quite the ride.  She is fast.  I was afraid of her LOL!  When she would come flying out of a tunnel, my first reaction was RUN AWAY!  But I (mostly) didn't run away :)  I really liked practicing with her.  It was way easier to see how little things make a difference in handling.  I have a lot to work on, but after practicing with Loretta and Klink I understand exactly how to start doing it.  I find doing, SO much easier than just reading/seeing.  
 So I'm totally not ready for a Border Collie -  hee hee hee.  I wouldn't mind borrowing one, but I still love my flufferbuns best :)
Even if she runs away sometimes.  But she knows (now at least) that running away is not the right choice.  Playing is much more fun.  Tibby jumped a double jump today and at 16 inches.  No problem.  She has me totally wrapped around her furry paw.  I swear she knows how to do everything, but it pays better to pretend that she doesn't.

I took these pictures in the rear view mirror.  I thought it was kind of neat. 

Notice the close pin on Tibby's nose?  !!!!  It's actually on the crate!  Weird right?

Then at home we had a quiet evening of battling the fur monster.  3 hours (or so....) later Tibby is ready to go and get groomed tomorrow.  Pre-grooming for the grooming.  Yes, I am afraid of the groomer.

Amazing how much time you have in traffic to notice number plates, and bumper stickers!

You BOTH did awesome!!! Klink says that you can run her ANYTIME! But, due to her little bratty-ness, I think Zip will be your helper next time ;-)

Lucky you that you get to take lessons from Loretta!!
