I just got done visiting with an old friend, who hasn't met Kona. This friend used to do agility, and I asked her to show me some tips on it. We go outside, set up some kiddy chairs (ones we know Kona can jump over) for Kona to try and jump. She knows the "Jump" command, so it shouldn't be a problem. She took Kona on the leash, and off they went. Kona was doing great...staying next to her at all times... running, not lagging behind at all... until she gets to these makesift jumps. She hits the breaks, or goes around. I sit there watching her try to teach Kona the jump, when she asks me to do it, to see if she will listen to me. Same thing... no jump... I ask her what she thinks is up with it and she says... "Well... You nor Kona are physically fit for this sport" What kinda crap is that? Someone I looked to for advice, someone I called my friend... and she says that. I am really upset... it wasn't like I was huffing and puffing running back and fourth. I mean really, I may look like a big girl, but I certinaly ain't a lazy one... ya know? I even smoke and I never really get out of breath. I know my dog isn't no lazy arse either. She runs faster than any other dog uner 30 pounds I know, and will play all day long. Is that lazy? I won't be calling this girl back again... End of rant... Thanks for listening!
