Talking Our new adventure--backyard agility

Lili is entirely too smart for her own good--and she has sooooo much energy! The Pack always had each other to play with, but Lili only has Grace (who's not so interested in wrasslin' at the age of 14) and JD (who would love to wrassle but is too small). So we've decided to take up agility as a way to wear Lili out and keep her mind engaged.

I ordered a tunnel, a hurdle, a hoop and some weave poles and we gave them a try this morning for the first time. Pictures courtesy of hubby...but he missed the most entertaining part, which was me belly-crawling through the tunnel, trying to convince Lili to follow me... Oh, well...that's probably for the best, anyway!

We did one set of weave poles, then walked over the hurdle (which is hard to see because it's set to grass level to begin), then through the hoop (also set to grass level):

After that, it was time for another set of weave poles:

Good girl, Lili!! (Turns out she'll do almost anything for a treat!
