The Best Compliment Ever!

As you know, Stout & I have been taking an online agility foundations class with Silvia Trkman. She is kind of my agility idol  :)

Anyway, I submitted Stout's most recent video to her yesterday:

Upon viewing it, she gave me a critique that ended with the best (agility) compliment I've ever gotten:
"... very nice handling!"
Yes, Silvia Trkman complimented my handling!  I was giddy!  :)  So please excuse this bragging  :)
This is the Silvia Trkman I'm talking about:

I feel like I should add this to my agility resume or something  :)


  1. You do have nice handling! But I guess my compliment doesn't count! LOL!

    But I do know what you mean...years ago now, Wilson and I were training with Carrie Jones and ran a tough sequence. When we were done, she told me she had nothing to add....We had pretty much nailed it and she would not change a thing! Yep, I was proud!

    Somehow, those kind of compliments have never been handed to Jimmy and me :-)

    1. Thank you! Of course your compliment counts!

      And I think you handle Jimmy quite nicely :) I know I wouldn't look as good as you do handling such a fast dog!

  2. Kudos! Love when he walks by the camera crunching the bottle. :) Seriously, Stout is looking good!

    1. Thanks! I just had to leave that part in... Cracked me up. Half our training time is spent with him doing stuff like that... :)

  3. Well-deserved!!! You are a very nice handler, Merinda! I love watching you handle Porter and I know you're doing right by Stout!
