Saturday in the Park

I think it was the fourth of July.

And I've been waiting such a long time
For today

Saturday we headed to Karen's for our weekly sheltie get-together. Since it was a holiday weekend, Robyn was there wither her sheltie as well. Karen set up a Master's level course from one of the April shows. I haven't had much luck with Kimi there because of the traffic noise, so I decided to do the course on leash. He did great. We tried it again on leash. Same success. So I decided to take the leash off for the third run. He was amazing! I still need someone to hold the chute open and I still need to lure him through the weaves, but he did everything else fantastic! Including a flip back to the tunnel from the dog walk.

The rest of the morning we all played together. Kimi hid for a long time until Karen let her GSD Woody out to play. Kimi came out of hiding and we managed to get this group picture.

Kimi's confidence grows daily. He is doing well in class. Once he figures something out, it's on to the next thing. I feel like a giant weight has been lifted from me and I am filled with nothing but joy.
