I Love my Agility Classes in Cuenca by Star

A few weeks ago we started our agility classes with our awesome teacher, Lily Goodale. We are now practicing at her house and we are having the best time ever. Of course mom has the hand coordination of an elephant, the poor thing! She can't get the hang of the clicker, treat, leash and so on, and confuses the daylights out of me; but we still have lots of fun together.

Agility is all about bonding, about paying attention and about focusing. I've learned to really pay attention to mom when we are at the beginning of the course. I only make a mistake when she does, which is too often.

I love the jumps the best.
Our agility equipment is home made but I wouldn't know the difference. I do miss the A frame though... it used to be one of my very favorite obstacles. And then... there is the seesaw... not my friend at all... here we are all trying to get used to the movement with miniature ones... it's not working for me. I don't like the noise and the movement.

One of my favorite things about agility is that I get to practice it with my friends. Maly is one of Caty, my super groomer, many dogs and she is really good. Chimbo is one of the Goodale's pack members. He's just a puppy and is Adrianne's dog. He is very smart and lots of fun; and like me, he loves the jumps.

I can't wait till Friday to go back and practice some more. Cuenca's beautiful sunny mornings are perfect for doing agility.


  1. So glad that you and your mom are getting to see Lily every week. Say hi to her from Richard and I and to your mom and dad as well. We send you greetings from Cusco, Peru. You would love it here as there are even more dogs here than there are in Cuenca - everywhere.

  2. I didn't know you did agility, Star!! OMG, that is fantastic! Mollie and Sophie can't wait to meet you in person!

    I just noticed your new profile pic!
    LOVE IT!!

    Miss you and your Mom so much!!

  3. Star, you look great out there on the course. I am sure your mom will get the hang of it soon. She can do yoga headstands after all. Hunter and I look forward to seeing you soon.
