Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Brutus & I were agility trial-ing all day Saturday & Sunday, so it was a fun & tiring weekend for both us! I'll keep our post for today short, so we can get caught up on everyone else's blogs.
Here are some new action shots of Brutus doing his thing. These were taken by a professional photographer during one of our January trials. Although they took FOREVER to arrive, I hope you will agree they were worth the wait! I think they are the best moments that have been captured of Brutus so far. Here are a few of my favorites:
Room to spare over the double. In case you are wondering Brutus jumps at the 12" height.
Weave poles. The expression on his face makes this shot!
Talk about extension! He must have been flying on this one, took of at least 3 feet before the jump...
... and still clears it with plenty of room to spare!!
I love how nicely tucked Brutus is here! He had to make a sharp left after the tire, and you actually can see him looking where he needs to go!!
For a "non-sporting" dog, I'd say those are some pretty athletic poses. Maybe the AKC needs to rethink which group Frenchies belong in...
In his finer moments, Brutus can really rock an agility course. Now we just need to have those kind of moments more often! Not to mention a few less blonde moments from the handler!! We are definitely making progress, and having a blast in the process. Although I have to say, it took me a second to decide how to take it when the judge came up to me after a run this weekend and said "I love your dog! He is so cute & makes me laugh when he jumps!" Maybe not the most lofty praise ever given to an agility dog, but I'll take it as a compliment!
