Fun Times at the Laughing Dog Agility Trial
« on: February 04, 2014, 07:08:08 PM »
The weekend of January 24-26, 2014, was very, very cold especially for central Alabama.  The cold weather did not, however, affect all the people who came to play agility.  The dogs thought it was great fun and were all running very fast.  Thanks to all the people who braved the cold to come join us.  Huge thanks to everyone who helped with all the jobs that have to be done at a trial from course building to ring crew.  Everyone pitched in and things moved along very well.  Nick Sparks is an awesome judge and we think of him as family.  He always brings challenging courses and is very friendly and helpful to all exhibitors.  We had several new people at this trial and it was always fun to see their eyes sparkle and their great big grins as they come off a course for the first time.  None had any idea how much fun they were going to have.  It really makes your heart feel good when you see these new folks having such fun. 

Below is a list of the successes we saw during the weekend:

Karin Moll & Jack, All American - V-NATCH4 - Congratulations to a great team!!!

Should never do something late at night when I am half asleep.  LOL  I made a huge error when I said our judge at the January Laughing Dog Agility trial was Nick Sparks.  Should have been Sarah Fix.  Had just returned from a trial where Nick judged and had him on the brain.  Sarah is a good friend and a super judge and we always have lots of fun when she visits.  My apologies to you, Sarah, and I hope you can forgive me.  Thanks.
