Nov 25 - From Florida - Breeze went to her 2nd. agility show last
week-end and out of 9 runs she got 7 first places and 3 titles. Novice
stan. preferred, novice jumpers preferred, novice fast preferred. Her
next show is Dec. 8 & 9 and now we will do reg. novice now. I always do
preferred first and then do regular just so we have more time in the
ring before we get to the hard stuff. Also we are doing Rally Advance
for the first time. I will let you know how we do . My friend and
her dog & Breeze & I went to the beach today and this old guy was
walking by himself and my friend's dog went up to him and started
barking but Breeze didn't pay any attention to him until he stared
yelling and he raised his arm up like he was going to hit her dog and
Breeze turned on a dime and went up to him and just growled we had to
tell him to be quiet and put his arm down. But I was impressed how
Breeze didn't do anything till he raised his arm, I guess she got that
from her mom & dad. Maggie
