Here’s the other canine at SCF – Ike, our 4-year-old Great Pyrenees. We didn’t buy him for guarding livestock. We’d had a Pyr before (Ivan) and they just have such wonderful personalities and are fantastic with kids. But last year when we had a hawk problem we pressed him into service. I’m looking forward to trying that with him again this year.
If you want a good laugh, watch this video: Madeline & Ike in agility
One of the last obstacles is a barrel/tunnel that the dog is supposed to crawl through. Problem is, Ike’s too big to fit. So Madeline improvised! (My friend Mike took this video.)

OH MY GOSH! Go Madeline! That’s priceless.
Now THAT’s quick thinking. Wonderful video, great memory!
I wanted to thank you for recommending the movie “King Corn.” My wife and daughter watched it with me, and they are starting to understand some of my enthusiasm.
That video is a riot! You could tell that Ike was in on that plan, too!What a good team!
haymaker – glad you liked it! I thought it was just so eye-opening but really funny, too. I’m looking forward to the rest of my family seeing it when it shows on PBS April 1st.everyone else – thanks! I think the assistant dog class supervisor dared her to do it, and Madeline’s got the kind of personality that says “why not!”
