No More Weave Poles!

Hi everyone!

We had a lot of fun this past Saturday at the Seattle Kennel Club show. This is a big event with vendors, show dogs and agility all held in a convention center.

Here are some pictures of the event floor. The first floor held the vendors, show dog rings and the agility ring. The second floor was a "Meet the Breed" and support for shelter groups area. There were about a million people and dogs there!! Ok, maybe just a few hundred or so, but still, lots of doggies and their humans.

Charlie was not in the mood for agility this weekend. She would sort of do Ok on the jumps and tunnels but would absolutely refuse to do the weave poles. And when Charlie does not want to do something she just plants her little feet and looks up at you with her big brown eyes. There is no way to coax her into completing the weave poles. On her second and final fun of the day her Grandma had had enough and just scooped her up and carried her off the field.

We all made up excuses for her - "too much walking around" "too much noise" "too much stimulation" "too many adoring fans". Nope, just stubbornness. The next day Charlie went with her Grandma to a smaller agility event and did the same thing, "No More Weave Poles Grandma!".

Oh well, some days are like that.

I will have more pictures of the dogs to share with you on the next post. We saw lots of great dogs and took a lot of pictures.
Talk to you soon!


  1. That show was HOOGE! No wonder you were distracted from the weave poles, but to be carted out of the ring by Grandma, kind of embarrassing, huh.


  2. Holy Pug! That's a lotta dogs and dog stuff. No wonders Charlie was so distracted. We agree with Mango though, bein' carried out by Grandma is not cool.

  3. Oh dear, well I can totally understand Charlie's point of view. I am a pretty stubborn puglet too!
    Love your owl background!

  4. That looks like the "Crown Classic" show we went to here in Cleveland back in December. I agree Puglette - that big of a venue can just be too much for out little heads to take in. I didn't to agility there (wasn't ready for AKC just yet), but I did compete in Rally. So no weave poles, but I did lay down in the ring during our rally exercise and refuse to move (much to the amusement of the crowd)!!

  5. Wow that is a big show. What an adventure - you look like you took it all in your stride.

  6. oh wow. That looked like an amazing show!

  7. It looked like a lot of fun, but my moms would be worried about some of my stubbonness,
    I am the queen of stubborness
