It's those little moments in agility that just pump me up! I watch him and am amazed how much he knows and how much fun he's having. Our spring agility season starts in two weeks. I'm like a little kid at Christmas; I can't wait.

Jack's Aunt Wilma recently lost her elderly dog. After Roo died, Wilma wanted another dog, but a smaller one. She asked me to keep my ears open and let her know if I heard of anything from the agility crowd.
I put out a notice to my club members, as I know that a number of them are active in their respective breed rescue organizations. Bingo! Conny emailed me that a Norfolk Terrier named Posey needed a home. She was a conformation dog that "didn't work out." (That's dogspeak for not perfect enough for the show ring.)
I hooked up Wilma with Posey, and it was love at first sight. Now Posey is living large and enjoying the attention of being an only dog.

Hickory--the Scottish Deerhouse, and my Mom's favorite--won the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday night. I was watching in bed (first mistake) and fell asleep during the Terrier group. I woke up at 10:55, just in time to see the judge's point. Divine intervention?

As to aglity trials, so far I've gotten into the three trials I entered (knock on wood). Cosi and I will be running and jumping and barking in March. Here's how Cosi and Mike helped during the hang-the-artwork project:

Not be be left out, the dogs have two new dog beds so they can enjoy being with us and not on the new furniture. What steps have you taken in your home to accommodate the dogs (make it dog-friendly) while maintaining some decent furniture? Any tips or suggestions? I'm all ears...
