Big head

Digger is a funny boy - sometimes grumpy with dogs, often terrified of simple things like lamp posts. For a while we've been going to agility classes to build up his confidence, especially around excited barking collies. Slowly but surely he is getting to grips with it. 

Yesterday we did a full steeplechase course for the first time at our club competition. And despite having never done more than 5 obstacles in a row, he did six rounds with about 20. And blow me down, managed to snag a couple of rosettes!

And now he's all big-headed. 

The truth is that in each round he kept wandering off to see people. Nosepoked the man with the stopwatch. Nosepoked daddy. Had a quick wrassle with Mojo and brought the perimeter fence down. But each time he came back and did the jump so nearly went clear. It was a slow-motion comedy. 

I'm so proud of my boy.
