Update - Lenny's other activities

Well, Lenny has been a very busy boy since the last post . . . . . so busy that his Mom hasn't had time to update his blog!

When Lenny is not participating in DockDogs, he is playing agility! Lenny & his Mom love agility. We began training, once/week, about a year and half ago, with a very knowledgeable and fun trainer, Cindy Boht. Lenny loves his Auntie Cindy and he loves to train.

We started trialing just about a year ago, and we have both improved nicely in that time. We have earned our Agility Dog of Canada title - Sep 10/11 at a K9 Klubhouse trial in Pickering - very exciting!

The aim of agility is to get a qualifying run, or Q, which means the dog & handler ran the course with no faults and within the time limit. A team needs to achieve 3 Q's in Starter Standard in order to earn their Agility Dog of Canada title. Here is Lenny's 3rd Q at the K9 Klubhouse trial in Sept which earned us our ADC:

I'm very, very proud of my boy!! He tries 150% every time!

DockDogs on the RMR-Feb 12/11

The Rick Mercer Report came to a World Qualifier DockDogs event in Toronto at Downsview Park on Sat Feb 12/11. He was there all day between the DockDogs area and the rest of Pet Funfest. What a crazy Canuck - he actually jumped in the pool!! Freezing water, dirty dog-hair infested water!! It was a hoot!!! Here is a clip of the show:

Lenny & I are just after the 6:25 min mark! (right after the German Shepherd) We didn't know we would be on till I watched the tv show when it aired!! How exciting is that??!!!
