Mikey at an agility trial last month...

"Here are more pics from last month's trial. Mind you, his belly and 2 front legs are shaved...can you tell?


Mikey, I swear you only have to jump 8 inches...


Intense worker or what? How cool is this caught between my legs?


Later in the day slowing down but happy as a lark."

Mikey jumps 8 inches. He can easily jump 12 but I refuse to jump him at that height. There is no reason. He can run performance in USDAA and jump 8 instead. He doesn't compete much anyways.

Mikey is fine with the chute. He's a little slow with it, but steady and pushes right through. I'm quite proud of his teeter. A lot of little dogs are very slow on it but he runs to the end and waits...it's a lovely teeter.

Thanks for the compliments! He's a hoot to work with and he really loves it when he's well enough to run.

That is a beautiful maltese in action. Great photos. You're right, the concentration on his little face says it all. Clearly he loves doing this.

JMM, Thanks for sharing, he looks fabulous and is obviously having so much fun!

Maltese parents, I encourage you to take your furbabies to agility classes...they are so much fun! For those of you who have hyperintense Maltese like Sylphide, it's an excellent way to channel their energy and gives them so much confidence!

I saw the hard workin picture on another site, and didn't think a picture could get any better until I saw the third one here. Your little man is stunning. I really think that is magazine material. I hope you have many more years with him.

I don't get the title of this thread. Was that sarcasm?

LOL Yes the title was sarcastic.

Marilyn, Mikey has lovely weaves. I free shaped them with the clicker and to speed him up worked on throwing a baggie of food (he doesn't work well with toys). He has nice quick, but precise weaves.

Thanks guys!

Mikey is grogeous!! Amazing pictures!!

We were actually planning to take Miko to agillity classes (found an instructor and almost scheduled it) when we found out about his luxating patellas. So we have postponed it for a while (at least until he completely recovers from surgery).

Mikey looks fabulous! I had no idea that he was still doing agility. For some reason I thought he'd had to retire because of his health.

How is his health these days? He looks like he feels wonderful!
