Early Morning Start Line with Belle
And it's a lot colder than you think it is from looking at those shirt sleeves
The Beagle Runs with Intent
Outta his way!
Charging Out of the Weaves
The dry grass was slippery--after a bad fall, Connery learned to rate his speed through the weaves that weekend.
Hitting His Contact Zone
Sticking a solid spot even though it costs time--because otherwise he just looooves to go sailing off the A-Frame.
And Down the Dog Walk
He's being a little cautious--there's a photographer sitting just to his left at the bottom of the dogwalk.
Through the Tire
And here's a really nice cross-behind--you can see him turning in mid-air, taking the change of direction from behind.
Going for Speed
Another good cross-behind, and the kid is stretching out to run.
Quiet Time with the Beagle
Just the two of us in the middle of chaos, communing.
