ABC Agility 2000 
by Mike Clifton

On Sunday morning, looking a lot like Jed Clampett, I loaded up the truck and headed to Frederick, Maryland that is. With me I had Libby, JD, Shiloh and the grand old grouch, Abby, four Boxers intent on doing Boxer Agility (There is a difference between regular dog Agility and "Boxer Agility").

Arriving late Sunday night, everyone (except the chauffeur) got settled in around midnight. We were up at 6:30 A.M. (Puppies had to potty don'tcha know) It was really nice to see some of the old familiar faces as well as some new ones. Ella and Tracy were there as I expected. These are two of the nicest ladies I think I've ever met. Also there as I had hoped was Ileana Nadal with the Boxer Queen of Agility, Emmy. What a team!! Also in attendance was a newcomer, Cindy Lyman from North Carolina.

Everyone who worked to put together the Agility Trial did an absolutely wonderful job. This has to have been one of the best (If not THE best) organized Agility trial that I've ever seen! Everything kicked off pretty much on time and flowed smoothly all afternoon.

As we began, I wasn't sure if it was just very hot or if perhaps I had died and gone to Hell. Either way, it was HOT!! Is it possible that the powers that be actually planned the heat in order to slow the dogs down? Planned or not, I know that it did slow MY guys down.

Of my four pups, two of them, Abby and Shiloh, had never practiced agility outside of our own training area at home. This was their very first time out. And they ARE Boxers, so you never really know what is going to happen when that lead comes off!

Here's what little bit of the results that I have. Running four dogs, it was hard for me to keep up with my own, much less everyone else. So everyone that I forget, please forgive me.
