Don't worry everyone, we've got security covered. No one's getting near this TV to change the channel for the next fortnight. Come on Team GB!
The 'Play Dead'. This is a highly specialised manoeuvre, which I, Willow, have nailed, but Pippin is yet to master. I like to bring it out when they least expect it, i.e when we're supposed to be going through that red tunnel nonsense, or in the middle of doing the weave poles. Genius.
Glove Wrestling. We have introduced this new discipline to the training schedule, in the hope that they will stop getting us to jump over the poles like a couple of show ponies. If you 'knock over' the pole enough times they eventually say "aaahh, are your old legs too tired?". Good that they missed Willow jumping over the 3 foot bench to get at that squirrel yesterday.
So apparently if we go through this cheap bit of plastic we get a treat, and the more reluctant we appear, the more treats we get. We are very reluctant.
When this dropped through the door, we knew our time to shine had come. If anyone can jump half-heartedly over a pole and amble through a tunnel, it's us. We've dusted off the agility equipment and we're limbering up. Watch this space.
Hi! We're Pippin & Willow, Chloe & Jeff's rescued labradors. We keep an eye on everything here at C&J HQ, and now you can enjoy following our antics here on our blog. Woof!
