Reilly's Turn - Part Two!

So it was back to the lessons. There I was cheering him on and throwing out advice. My first piece of advice was throw your legs out, not up, that should propel you forward. GO MAN GO!

Here his form was better, but not quite good enough.

Here is the second attempt at forward and not just up. I decided his problem was he had no forward momentum.

So here it is, the big moment. I gave him all the advice I had

1 run really fast

2 jump throwing your legs back instead of just up

3 imitate Superman

4 land comfortably on the couch

Here it is, our first ever video action shot, where my lady was lucky enough to catch his first success ON VIDEO. I warn you to turn down your sound due to the loud excited yelling and shouting that goes. No really, it's loud and obnoxious! You'd think we won the lottery or something, but anyway, here it is REILLY"S FIRST JUMP!

Here it is in stop action shots, look at his form in the second shot, WOW!

Getting his hugs after his second successful attempt from the Uncle! Never underestimate the power of Mr. Eggplant.

Hey, where is my hug you fools! I'm the one that taught the little sh*& how to jump, don't I deserve a hug?!

Reilly -

We are so impressed you are such a quick study !!

You need to ask the Lady if she would be interested in gettting her boys into flyball - you guys have natural talent...YOu guys would have a blast.

You're Lady should be very proud...Did she make a cake ????

Does your Lady do cakes for other doggies ?????

WooHoo, Reilly! Way to go, buddy. And Murphey, you are an amazing coach. If the Olympic couch jumping team needs a coach, you should be at the top of that list!

How exactly did Mr. Eggplant motivate the Reilly guy?

And, who else was there making all that noise?

Goob love,
