Eevee turns 8 months old this month, and she is really starting to mature into one amazing dog.
Saturday in flyball practice jump sequencing started clicking into place. I believe she really only tried to run around the jumps once, then she started plowing through the sequencing and even single strided! Still only doing two jumps in a row since i'm not in a rush, but I'm really excited on how fast she picked this up.
Then on Saturday afternoon I'm throwing frisbees in the back yard to Baxter and E is SUPER interested. Like, chasing down Baxter as I send him around for his disc - to the point that Baxter royally told the little shit to leave him the heck alone or next time he would eat her. So... I pulled out another disc and threw one for Eevee... and she caught it... in the air... and she brought it back to me.
I've literally NEVER thrown her a disc before. Not even rollers when she was a wee pupling. I like throwing discs for Baxter, but it's not something I'm ever planning on competing in. So I've been busy building her flyball foundation and her agility foundation, things I actually plan on competing with her in, and yet there is just something oddly satisfying about being able to throw a good throw with good disc placement and watching your dog kick butt in snatching it out of the air. I'm really tickled that she is picking this up.
I took this video on Sunday. I can't throw well and film at the same time, it just doesn't happen. Usually my disc placement is much better (not always, but usually). I don't want her jumping for discs yet, most of my throws she can just snag out of the air while she runs up to them, but again, i can't throw and record!
I'm looking forward to seeing her continue to grow up and be such an amazing little companion in everything I love to do!
