2014 Westminster Agility Course

shutterstock_174662624I had planned on spending today live-blogging the agility event at this year’s inaugural Westminster Masters Agility Competition. Imagine my surprise when I learned they are not streaming any of the event online or through their mobile app nor are they posting preliminary results on their site. Grrrrrr.

I will bring you what news I can, whenever I can, and I will definitely post tonight during the televised portion of the competition – the finals.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
