Aiden in Rhode Island

This weekend Aiden is entered in the Providence County/Middlesex County Kennel Clubs Agility Trial in North Smithfield, RI. Jack and I took Friday off work and drove to Rhode Island and went to Lincoln Woods State Park. Even though it was a grey day we had a nice walk in the woods. Of course Aiden found some water to splash in!




Then we went to the Wide World of Indoor Sports building and set up our crate and chairs. They were having agility run-thrus so we signed Aiden up for two runs. He had a blast! After a quick dinner  we checked into the Red Roof Inn for the night.

This morning it was back to the trial site bright and early.

The first class was Masters FAST. The bonus involved two jumps, then a wrap back to the first jump, all from a distance of 15 ‘. As Aiden was over the second jump I called his name too soon to turn him back to the first jump and the bar came down!

The next class was Masters Standard. Aiden had a good run but one darn bar came down!

Aiden’s final class of the day was Masters Jumpers with Weaves. No bars came down…BUT..the course started with two jumps and then the tunnel. After the two jumps Aiden went for the correct side of the tunnel but hesitated and then went in the wrong side.

No Q’s today but a great time was had by all. Aiden sure does love agility. We were done by 1:00pm and took Aiden for a walk in Lincoln Woods State Park again. It was another gray day with rain expected this evening and all day tomorrow.

  1. Regardless of no Qs this time, Aiden had a blast. Love the photographs too!

    We need a cure for the curse of the single bar
