Hoping to add a little spice to his dog's life, author Rodi spent a year putting Dusty, a rescued sheltie, through the paces at agility trials. Faced with teeter-totters, tires to jump through and tunnels to maneuver, Dusty became "a neurotic mess," yet Rodi's drive wouldn't let him quit. Initially his city sensibility clashed with the rural contestants. He soon built camaraderie, but as Dusty continued to balk, Rodi realized that his hunger for "ribbons and glory" might be failing them both. His book is a charming, hilarious look at a little-documented world.
