Here are photos I took the weekend of January 6, 2007, at an agility match in Industry Hills, California:

Casey, a red & white parti, competes in agility
My favorite dog at the show.  His name is Casey.
He has a gorgeous full coat, a wonderful personality, and he's great at agility!


 

A sable colored Cocker in mid-air
There were Cockers in many different coat colors, including this sable.
His name is Bismark, and his owner/handler is Pam Metzger.
A little further down the page you'll see another one of her dogs.

 

buff colored Cocker at an agility trial
Most of the Cockers had their coats shaved down short.
It would take a huge amount of work to keep a long coat on active dogs like these.
This dog belongs to Florance Goldsworthy.  I think his name is either Boo or Razzie.
I can't remember...  I met so many dogs that day!

 

Sharon Stevens and Duke
This is my friend, Sharon Stevens, with her dog, Duke.
Duke qualified in both the standard agility run and the "jumpers with weaves" run.

 

 

Speaking of weave poles...

...that beautiful red & white parti, Casey, shows how it's done. 

 

 

Casey on the cover of a Cocker calendar
By the way, Casey is famous.  That's him on the cover of a calendar you may have seen in the stores.

 

 

chocolate parti Cocker competing in agility
I was fascinated with this dog because it looked so much like our girl, Reese.
After talking to the owner, it all made sense.  This is one of Reese's brothers!
His name is Brewster, and his owner/handler is Pam Metzger.

 

jumping through the tire
Our back yard definitely needs one of these contraptions in it!  (It's called a "tire"!)
One of our friends is going to bring us a used motorcycle tire and I'm going to try to make one of these things!

 

Casey
You can see in the facial expression how much this dog was loving this!
I think this may be the same dog in the third picture from the top.

 

Sharon Stevens with Duke at the starting point
Just before the Duke starts his run, Sharon gets him set at the starting point

 

Duke flying over a jump
Duke is off and running.  Or should that be "off and flying"?!?

 

Black and white parti Cocker
I didn't manage to get a picture of this Cocker in motion, but I did snap it at the same event as the other photos you see here.
Notice the nice way the owner has trimmed around this dog's front feet.
That's a good lesson for those of you who groom your own Cocker.

 

Chaos, an amazingly fast black Cocker Spaniel
This was the fastest Cocker I saw all day.  Her name is Chaos.
Chaos won the award for "Novice High Cocker" at this trial.
That makes me feel better, since every picture I took of her in action just came out as a blur!
The only way I could get a clear photo of her was when she was sitting down.

 

Border Collie in agility
There were other breeds of dogs at the show, and this Border Collie was one of the fastest dogs I had ever seen.

 

The Flying Mop
This was the weirdest looking dog I saw all day!  Yes, that's a dog.  See the tongue?!?
I think this is a Hungarian Puli.

 

 

Our Cocker stud, Dodger
The best agility photo I've ever taken was actually not taken at an agility trial...
I shot it in my back yard!  That's our boy, Dodger.
