Teller and I made our way to Somers, CT this weekend for the TMAC AKC Agility trial. Some ups and downs. First - Teller nailed both of his teeters - confidently and happily hitting them and SLAMMING them down. A-Frame contacts were not there this weekend, I asked for his stopped contact ("Yellow") and didn't get it. He was so amp'ed up in the cooler weather and good footing that he did his typical one hit A-Frame.One run he was in the yellow, the other he missed by the customary 2". We'll keep plugging away.

Mr. JWW was back this weekend giving me two JWW Q's this weekend. They were smooth too - 8 points on Saturday and 7 points today. Today's JWW run was somewhat enlightening - there was a timer malfunction - the time never started, so Teller and I got through the first 5 obstacles when we were whistled. Teller came out of the tunnel and I met him with a party - he liked it! We partied back to the startline doing some tricks, put on our leash and  stepped out for a couple of pieces of hot dog and back in for our do over. I'm so relieved that he's the kind of dog I can do that with - one of those things that you just don't know how they're react until it happens. Teller never lost his game face and he handled it like that was just simply the way it always is....
