This past weekend we had the pleasure of competing in the local agility trial hosted by the Lost Coast Kennel Club. This is always an enjoyable event---especially for those who come here to get away from the heat--but this year was even better due to the higher than usual number of corgis in attendance (see above). Not only are these dogs cute, they are fine competitors, and did the breed proud with their stellar performances. Well, most of them anyway. Emma seems to be calming down a bit, but we still have a ways to go as her enthusiasm gets the best of her. Raleigh, however, was on his game---three titles, four firsts, and a total of seven qualifying runs. This sport is a joy--what could be better than spending the weekend with a bunch of dogs and their people, tackling challenges on the course, cheering the other teams, and sitting around in camp chairs watching and visiting? It's pure recreation and we are very grateful to the Lost Coast Kennel Club for making this possible.
