I have once again not posted here in a long time. Just about a year, I believe, which is pretty bad. I haven’t been having a good time competing with Raafael in agility and it turns out there’s a very good reason for that. My little monkey has Medial Shoulder Syndrome (MSS). It is classified […]

What to bring to an agility class or training session
Hi gang, I’m back! I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from the blog, mostly due to being incredibly busy. I’ve started to teach more agility classes (on top of my actual full-time job), as well as my duties as the new RD for NS/NL for the AAC. I’ve also been steadily getting my condo ready […]
Sooooo….I fucked up. I forgot to pay the damn website bill, and forgot for long enough that they no longer had my website backed up. I had backed up most of my posts. I thought I had backed up all the content. I checked my home computer. I checked my office computer. I checked my tablet. I checked […]
Super portable jump, converts into winged or wingless!
I know this thing doesn’t look like much, but I am perversely proud of it. I had some extra pipe hanging about and was having trouble getting out to my usual practice spot, which meant my only option was to go back to hauling my gear to a nearby park. And since I am all […]
End of the Year Review: I learned some lessons, and none of them were what I would have predicted
Last weekend marks the official end of the 2015 Agility Season for myself and pretty much everyone in the Maritimes. Even though we were 0/8 in the Q department after two days of competition, Raafi managed to finish off the year really well at our last trial, which might seem like a funny thing to […]
Wisdom Panel DNA Test Review: Huh? Wait, what?
So there’s been a long standing joke about Raafi’s parentage. Basically, no one could come up with a definitive guess as to what his mix was beyond “German Shepherd and something, probably a kangaroo.” And while it doesn’t really make much of a difference (at three-and-a-half years old his personality is pretty well formed and […]
The Best Agility Trial Gear (aka How to Pack for a Trial Like a Champ)
There’s a lot of choices when it comes to picking your trial gear, and what you need (and what would just be really nice to have) will likely change over time as you trial more, settle into your competition habits, add new dogs, etc. Even after trialling for a few years I still find myself […]
#NationalDogDay and Winning Jump Design
So just in case your FB news feed has somehow not been filled with that hashtag accompanied by emphatically cute puppy photos…aw, who are we kidding? If you’re reading this you know exactly what day it is. Happy National Dog Day!! In other news my DIY Wing Jump design just won in Clean Run‘s […]
Course Maps! Pushes, threadles, and obstacle descrims, oh my!
So I’ve been dabbling with making my own course maps. Mostly because I have limited equipment and limited space, and trolling around online to find stuff that perfectly fits my criteria can take forever. So as I like this blog to be a resource for others I thought I’d share some of the maps I’ve […]
New name, new design, and hopefully renewed focus
So for anyone whose been here before (all three of you) you might have noticed some big changes. When I first started this blog it was just me and Mufaasa, which made the title “Mufaasa and Me” seem like the best bet (also, alliteration is awesome). But since then Raafael has entered my life, I’m […]
