No joy for Clancy and a nice surprise

I've been on vacation for the past two weeks and when I got into the office this morning there was a package for me. It was my Quaker exchange! I didn't remember that I had given my work address as my mailing address and so I would be late in receiving my animal. Elena from Italy sent me this wonderful Quaker Cat made into a pillow with a pocket on the back. She also included some really pretty floss and ribbon. Thanks so much Elena! I love it. Sorry I made you wait to hear if your package had made it across the water.

Clancy and I had no luck at this weekend's agility trial and I'm putting the blame squarely on me. I'm starting to freak out before the weave poles and I'm sure now that I'm the reason that he is not even trying them. I have a trial this weekend (three days outside!) and then one in August but then we are going to take a break to work on fundamentals. And I'll try to find a way to hide more of my stuff from Clancy.
Here is Clancy with his buddy, Mr. Beasley. Beasley is a Bernese Mountain Dog and weights 105 pounds! But he as gentle as can be with Clancy and Clancy enjoys being around him. :-) This was Beasley's first agility trial and he Q'd on Sunday with a first place in Jumpers.

It's hard being an agility rock star.

Sorry Clancy didn't do well. As long as you're both enjoying yourselves though :) Mr Beasley is one HUGE dog! Blimey!

Poor Clancy. Sorry he did not do well. Maybe it is time to take a long break and then just start over.

Clancy probably sees himself as big as Mr. Beasley.
