So I mentioned last week how at flyball practice I raced against Riot and Foster. Well, at tonight’s practice, I raced against Foster again. It didn’t start out so great because Foster got a bit too close while she was walking to her lane and I sort of lunged and barked at her, but I was able to refocus and do a bunch of runs. Racing against Foster made me want to run better and Foster is fast! She’s 10 years old and has had surgery on both of her back legs but she runs like a bullet.
Here’s our first race.
Here’s a video of our second race.
Then I did some by myself because Foster had to rest her legs. She’s starting her return to flyball after her latest surgery, but she was able to serve as a huge distraction for me in this next video. She was standing in the next lane barking at me but I managed to ignore her and do my run! Here’s that clip.
You can’t really see it on these videos but my reward for running back to Amy is, of course, bubbles! Most dogs run for food, or a tug, a toy or even a laser light, not me!
Oh, last night was the flyball team party and even though only two dogs were in attendance, Po and Jackie (the party was held at their house), Amy tells me it was a lot of fun. She made FBI tennis ball cupcakes.
