I've been watching

Dog Agility Trials on YouTube. Also, dog herding demonstrations. I am getting a bit of sports euphoria from them, and I find them very entertaining.

It is enough to make you haul your dog to the back yard and begin making it comply. But, I think that if I had a dog in a trial, my poor doggie wouldn't win because I can't run that fast anymore, if ever I could. Sometimes, it's just as fun to watch the trainer run the course as it is the dog. For one video, they drew a graphic of the course on the picture, showing the pathway. Man, I'm too stupid to remember all that. The dog has to be told what to do next. They don't know. And, I'm afraid I wouldn't know either. I guess they use cheat sheets.

It sure looks like fun. You might enjoy watching a few.

1. But with your cat

It’s just you
Your cat
And your laser pointer…

4. Wow!

That's amazing.

I had a very smart cat that played with me, taught himself tricks, and behaved like a dog. He could have done this. But all my other cats, it was all about them.

I envision mixed teams of dogs and cats competing together for agility glory--and food.

You do see cats on TV being run through their paces. I can see it. There's love in that cat's heart for that young woman.

6. I've seen them, too, making me wish I've started my dog as a puppy

And I agree that it looks like it's much tougher on the trainer. The dogs look like they're having fun!
