My First Time (On an A-Frame, That Is)

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend!
These pictures are from the very first time I went on an A-Frame, when we were in Birmingham AL in October. It was in a very nice dog park; it was great to see unbroken equipment! I just looked at it and dashed up and over, a bunch of times, without any command or coaxing! Mom was so proud of me. I kept in a perfectly straight line over and up, hitting the contact zone and everything! Mom and I are really interested in agility and I show great promise, but Mom wants to wait till I'm two before we start training. Have you every been on an A-Frame?

  9. We are impressed. You are very brave. We have that stuff at some of our dog parks, but we DO NOT go on them. We just sniff around them.

  10. You go Nola. I've been on da A frame two. I love to do a bit of the agility and we go on Thursdays.

  11. I've never been on one, but it looks fun!

  12. That's pretty fancy climbing! No way I could manage this - maybe in my younger days!

    Your pal, Pip

  13. Nice!!! You go girlfriend. Great job. Mamas have been talking about getting us involved with agility. We will have to look into it. Charlie would probably do great in that because of his energy. Have a great Monday. From the Weinerful Gang.

  14. GO NOLA, GO! You have a lot more energy than I do! :o(

  15. Wow! looks like fun. We're gonna have to beg mom and dad for one of those.

  16. Wow! Look at you go! I do some agility for fun and I love the A-frame and the dog walk too. The only thing I don't like is the teeter, cuz it moves...scary! Keep up the good work, Nola!


  17. Yea - they are such fun - I loved them when I did agility for a year!

  18. That really looks like fun! Me thinks my hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon would like to do something like that!

  19. We have an A-Frame in our backyard (taller than yours) but I am the only one trained on it. Nuka does a pretty good job if she is in the mood and so does Puff. Quinn likes to lie inside of it...and of course, YoYoMa being blind would scare momma to death if he tried. It is fun...come by and play if you are ever in NM!

  20. You did great on that A-frame! Looks like so much fun.

  21. Hey Nola!
    Wow, what a great athlete you are! You did a great job and you are totally fearless. Maybe you'll try one of those pawesome tunnels next. Great action pix.
    Grr and Woof,

  22. Hey Nola, I have been in that very same dog park!! Cool. Although Mom didn't exactly get me up on that thing. No way, no how, even for a tennis ball. Next time you are in town, let us know and we can have a playdate!


  23. That sure does look like fun! I wish we had something like that around here.

  24. Compared to you that is huge Nola! I think you were very adventurous!
