Poor Finn!

Well Finn has finally had his wee operation.  I debated for sometime whether to neuter him - there are strong views both for and against.  Finally, went with the vet's recommendation and booked him in.  

He is recovering well but not one bit impressed to have to stay on the lead for all his exercise for a whole week!  Nor by the collar that he must wear  - licking a certain area is just too irresistible!

On a more cheerful note, at our last training session before "that" day, Finn was jumping full height and going really well.

Just watch his tail!  Makes me laugh...

"Mind to Win" Beginners Course

Kathrine McAleese runs an agility fun day each year after her "Mind to Win" training camp.

This year she introduced a course of jumps and tunnels especially for dogs who had not yet competed in KC competitions.

Ronnie McAleese designed a flowing course with just a couple of little challenges:

So Finn and I attempted the course as a training round at medium height.  It didn't go entirely to plan.... the purple arrows show where we messed up.  (And Ronnie, I'm really sorry Finn lifted his leg on your tunnel.)

However despite the bungle in the middle, I was very pleased with Finn this time.  The last sequence felt totally exhilarating!

Thanks for a fun day Kathrine and co.
