We don't have time in our schedule to get out to agility classes so we are continuing to work on foundation skills with minimal equipment (and minimal distractions).

I Spy

I Spy, with my little eye, something that




is oddly acrobatic and very entertaining


is usually found in/near water


as an adult, does not eat anything


ranges from 1/80 to 1/10 inch in diameter

I feel something squiggling under my right paw!
WOW!!!  Can you see it?

Although related to nematodes, they are called Horsehair Worms because they "resemble the hair of a horse's tail or mane."  They are also called Gordian Worms because of their tendency to twist into knots (as you can see in the above videos).  They are apparently harmless to humans, pets and plants (the same cannot be said about the crickets, beetles, etc. that they inhabit for most of their lives).  After the rain stopped, we found the unfortunate beetle that had housed this adult in its larval stage.  You can read more about this unusual creature at:
