My boy made me laugh.

After a busy three days of volunteering at the nationals for the AAC (boy I had fun). I saw some really, really good runs. I saw some.... okay...this run is not so .... well... not so good. :) I heard comments of... but "AH!!!! My dog is 9.5 years old and has never been a tunnel suck! Why is she a tunnel suck today?!!!!!" and "I'm really happy with how he ran that course" (handler talking about her dog) and "nice run". Comments of "thank you for volunteering" where much appreciated as well.

Anyways, I stopped in at my parents to pick up Justin. As we were getting ready to go home, I asked Justin if there was anything he wanted to bring with him.

He immediately responded with "Oma, Oma coming?"

Made all three of us adults just laugh.

You'd almost thing this boyo had a good time at his Papa's and Oma's house. :)

Aw, that is so cute!

BTW, what in the world is 'a tunnel suck'?

Annette said...

Jen, a tunnel suck is a dog who decides that a tunnel (an obstacle used in agility) is the best place to be. this lady's dog ran for the tunnel every time he saw one. Results in off course points (which one does not want) and makes directing a determined little dog around a course much more difficult. It's like the dog has in his brain ... yes I know you want me to take the jump but hey way over in the far corner look!!!! there's a tunnel!!!!

Can be very frustrating. I"ve been there with Sassy. :(

I know it must be frustrating, but the way you tell it makes me laugh! :)

well that's the thing Jen. is that it is funny. Frustrating for all of us so that when we see it happening, you can't help but laugh because the dog is having so much fun. :) It's just frustrating as a handler because you know what you want to do... but the dog is having fun just doing it's own thing. :)
