    Clearly my dog spends too much time hanging around the hunters at the barn. I'm taking a jumping skills class (supposed to be based on Susan Salo's method), and took photos this week to compare jumping styles. I had someone take a few of Meg for me, and this is what I got:

    :lol-sign: Could my dog be any weirder? I'll have to post the rest of the photos (and she's jumping more like a dog in those) later, as we have a different agility class tonight and I need to get going. I couldn't resist with that one, though

    She's a natural :) Eyes focused on the landing, legs tucked under her, and she's clearing the jump. Now if she was only a horse....:)

    BB, I'll bet a lot that she doesn't bring down bars. Nice, tight and scopy.
    Look forward to seeing more.

    That's hilarious...now strap a monkey to her back and you're on Letterman!

    At least your dog isn't jumping like Pepe LePew...

    That would be my bad editing skills;). The eyes were red and I tried to fix them!

    "While this is a very athletic dog, the owner should have made sure she was dressed up for the party. The dog's toes have not been polished, her coat is rough, and regular readers know that I disappove of the current trend for "bling" on the collars." LOL I used to pour over those critiques.

    You are the second person to say that to me in the last couple days, and I've been knocking wood so much my knuckles hurt. But no, she's not a dog that I ever have to worry about the jumps.

    Practice/gossip time ran long tonight (when doesn't it when you get a bunch of dog people together?), so the other pics are waiting for tomorrow. They aren't as fun as that one anyway.

    Oh DUH to me!!!!!!!!! Missed that, went right over my head. Use to read PH as well all the time and remember that. Too funny BB. Agree with Dekka, you nailed it.
    Now you really should send it to him, of course with the critique. If I was him, I would find it a riot.
