Cold.Hard.Cash.

People often ask us what we win when we do agility, and are very surprised to hear me say "a ribbon... maybe a rosette." They always follow up with "you don't win any money?" ... like I forgot about that part. No, no money... just a ribbon. And if we make even one tiny mistake, we don't even get the ribbon. Most people can't understand that we do this for fun.

However, this weekend we participated in an agility match sponsored by USDAA, rather than AKC. They gave out ribbons as well (just flat ones, not rosettes). But, to my delight at the end of the day Sunday I found out that Maggie's second place finish in the Steeplechase event didn't earn a ribbon, but an envelope with $25! Maggie's first paycheck. I wonder how she'll spend it.
