Here we are back on the topic of Madison and agility. I last posted about her agility career the beginning of December. One positive thing since then is she is in a class an hour earlier. Most every night, Madison goes to bed at 8:30, so when class started at 8:15, it was tough for her.
Madison still does her best work the first half of class. She is also a pretty smart little girl, which means if you ask her to do the course or practice something more than two times, it bores her and she will start looking for distractions.
If you follow us on Instagram, you may have seen Madison at the end of class back in January. She was worn out completely! Class clown is a designation she doesn’t seem to mind.
Mom had this video taken of Madison on her run Monday night. She has trouble getting started, but ran the course pretty well until the end when she took a short break. Madison did manage to get her speed up again for a good finish.
Why are Mom and Madison still doing agility? Madison loves going to class. She loves seeing her friends, kissing the boys, getting attention from her instructors, and she really does love running around the courses. Following directions seems to be her strong point, but they need to work on getting some more speed. Who knows? One day they may be able to enter a trial, but there is no rush as it is just for fun at this point. We have our other sports that are much more important.
