The little rescue puppy, Belle, loves being Darcy’s pet, but dislikes lazy afternoons doing nothing. In search of a job, she digs out of the yard, knocks over waste baskets, and encourages Buster into all kinds of mischief. Darcy’s parents discuss giving her to a farmer who needs a working dog. Finally, they allow Darcy to put Belle into agility training, but Belle must complete the 4-H agility trial at the county fair before she can stay. Learning agility is hard, especially when it comes to climbing the terrifying teeter totter. She is so sure she’ll fall off, that she jumps wildly off the obstacle every time she faces it. She’ll be disqualified from the class and lose Darcy forever. Can she conquer her fear and and discipline herself to succeed?
