    I keep trying to put things into words and just... can't. We finished our last run and I walked out laughing and smiling, then I took a breath, it sunk in, and I started to cry. He is just such a great dog and I love him so much. I know our journey together isn't over, but this part of the story is, and it hurts a little. This is not how I ever pictured it ending.

    I am now looking around to find somewhere he can play flyball, because I really think he would love it. We're going to get back into getting him on sheep too. His breeder gave him a big kiss yesterday and said "You can still come to my house and play." I know it's not over. Stuff will be set up in my yard for the baby dogs and we will play on it. Just because we aren't competing doesn't mean he won't play agility anymore. It just means I'm no longer throwing money at it, and we can just... have 100% fun without the pressure of trying to "fix" issues anymore. It's all about fun from here on out and that's how it should be.

    until we start playing flyball.

    That was a beautiful video. Put tears in my eyes. Having had an agility dog with "issues" I can see where you're coming from. But just remember the really great runs you've had with him over the years. :)

    Very nice Beanie, very nice :)

    And I agree, it'll be nicer for you both since it's 100% about fun instead of competing. In a perfect world, that's what it would be about ALL the time........but we don't live there.

    What a wonderful video!

    The dogs don't really care about trials and titles and ribbons, just that they can play with you. Good luck with Auggie's future endeavors!
