This is the photo from Ike's class two weeks ago. It doesn't look quite as good as it did on the camera, but my classmate was still willing to share it with me. And because of the happiness on display I think it is awesome.
Nowadays you would never know this was a dog who I had to do remedial board work with and used to walk over the dog walk. He didn't really like agility, tolerated it for the mum. Now he LOVES it. You should have seen him flying around last night's course (more on that later). Patience surely pays off!
