This Time, Last Year

I was going to skip updating today, but then I realized that today is the one-year anniversary since Marge passed her Canine Good Citizen test. It feels like eons ago! I'm not sure if she'd pass the test again - I think she'd need a refresher in a couple of areas (meeting/ignoring a strange dog and 3-minute separation test are the big two I can think of), but I like to think that she has retained a lot of the doggy etiquette that led her to pass last year.


A few days from now, it will also be one year since Marge first started agility. I'm pressed for time, but I thought I'd leave you with this little amusing clip that you might not have seen before... Our first agility sequence, sometime last spring. It makes me smile when I watch it.



Now, I'm headed out for a field trip for school that I can definitely do without (who wants to ride the subway for an hour on a Monday afternoon?), but I'll get back on track with blogging tomorrow.

Happy ONE Year Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! Maybe it is a little like passing your driving test - none of us could do that a year on without revisiting a few areas!

Happy Anniversary from me, too! I have not taken the test that Marge did, but I mostly try to be good so that counts a little!

Kisses,
Stella

Loved the old video clip! Isn't reminiscing the best?

Hope your field trip wasn't too bad. An hour on a subway seems like a really long ride! Hope you at least got to do some good people watching.

Hope you had fun on your field trip! Despite the subway ride. :)

Congratulations on all your one year anniversaries! Loved seeing the video! What a difference between then and now. You guys are just a blur on the course, now.

Isn't it cool to see how far you've come in a year? Congrats on your anniversary!

Ricky the Sheltie April 19, 2010 at 7:38 PM  

Congrats on your anniversary! Your agility video clip made us smile too! You two were moving fast already! I hated the CGC test because of the lady that wanted to touch my ears - almost didn't pass the test because of that! Sounds like Marge has come a long way in a year!

Kathy April 19, 2010 at 7:48 PM  

happy anniversary, look how far you have come, really pretty amazing when you think about it

Roxanne @ Champion of My Heart April 19, 2010 at 8:36 PM  

Wow. Has it really been a year?

LauraK April 19, 2010 at 9:03 PM  

How fun to be able to look back on your training and see how far you've come. You girls looked great then, but even better now! Very cool, thanks for sharing :)

Hope you survived your field trip- riding on a subway for that long sounds miserable to me!

We hope woo survived your field trip!

Yes, we've been totally AWOL too, but want to tell you that even tho Sammie has the CGC, we don't think she could pass it again! BTW, that video is just pawsome - I know so little about agility, but it looks great to us! Hope that field trip turned out to be worth it!

I can hardly believe it's been a year already. Wow, does tie fly. But if you think about it, Marge has come a very long way!

And you're right, it's been a very long Monday. :)

Diana April 20, 2010 at 5:57 AM  

I dont think Miley could pass her CGC again either. Im pretty sure they had a bike come by in my class. Now if a bike came by, hmmm it would be a problem. LoL Who invented field trips anyway. Good luck. Diana

Obviously agility is Marge's most happy thing. She did great even in the beginning.

That clip shows a pair of stars in the making!!!!!!!

AC April 20, 2010 at 11:24 AM  

I love to look back like that. What a great beginning you had, and great progress you've made!

Jes April 20, 2010 at 1:52 PM  

Congrats on being a good citizen for a whole year, Marge! lol The video was awesome. I would love to do agility with one of my girls, but I just don't have the time to add any more onto my plate. So I shall simply have to live vicariously through you and your blog. Keep up the good work!

Cinnamon April 21, 2010 at 6:44 AM  

I think you and Marge have achieved a lot in the last year! Both of you are so much inspiring!

Muttsandaklutz April 23, 2010 at 10:51 PM  

Fun to look back and see where we've been. Great that you caught Marge's first sequence on video!
