Regionals does not count towards "Q"s or titles. Regionals is a qualifier for the National Championships, which we would probably not make the cut off for, even if Maggie had been training over the winter. I am not super competitive, so I really don't care if we place.
So why did I enter Maggie? I entered her to have fun. I entered her for the experience. I entered her because I can.
I sometimes think what would have happened if I didn't find Maggie's Mast Cell Tumor. What if it had spread too far before it was discovered. What if it had turned out to be a more serious form of cancer. What if she wasn't here to play this game or too sick to play?
I have been working hard to get Maggie back in shape. We are going to regionals. Maybe we will do OK, maybe we won't. But we will be there. We will have fun and enjoy the experience playing agility - Together.
