My Beagles...

Emma and Levi......are 5 months apart. Emma was born 3 November 2004 and I soon realised she needed a playmate. I was very lucky to find Levi within a few months of getting Emma, as I waited nearly two years for Emma!Levi was born 28 March 2005 and was the naughtiest puppy alive! Him and Emma immediately hit it off and became the best of Beagle Buddies.I desperately needed to find an outlet for my Beagle kids' energy, and ventured into the world of agility. It soon became one of my biggest passions, apart from the Beagle breed, and today Emma and Levi are both competing in the top grades. I made a friend in Slovenia, running her Beagle Xsara in agility, and she inspired me to start teaching them tricks. I'm enjoying it very much and hopefully this blog will be as entertaining and inspiring to others, as Xsara's is to me.

SA Champ Videos

Each dog ran four rounds, two Jumping and two Agility. Levi had his best run in round 2, Agility, coming a very close 3rd for that particular course. Emma had her best run in round 3, Jumping. Here they are:

Huge thanks to Werner and Marisa Coertzen for the photos and video. Excuse the "squashing", it was taken on widescreen, but when uploaded to Blogger it seems to go back to being "square".

the carpet must have been very slippery, you can see it by the dogs' movement, it's very different from the outdoors videos. congrats on your placings (not bad at all) and if you find a way to calm ring nerves in front of more experienced handlers, I would appreciate your advice. I guess the answer is in earning more experience and gaining confidence by doing so. It's hard work though. Anyway, you did great and you make other agility beagles proud!
