I did it! I did it! I DID IT!!!
I am an official Flyball Dog!!! Amy and I just got back from the Viva Las Flyball tournament in Lebanon, PA and look what I got!
On Saturday, I ran three times in a warm-up spot and then I earned my very first title, Flyball Dog, when, after the third warm-up, I ran in four of the five heats! Then, today, I ran in two full races, with five heats each and I earned my second title, Flyball Dog Excellent! I ran in a third race, but after the first two heats, I got very distracted by a dog in the next lane so I graciously bowed out. Actually, it was more like, Amy picked me up off the floor and took me outside the ring, but I didn’t mind. I had run a whole bunch of clean heats!
Oh and as if that wasn’t cool enough, see that medal? I got it because the our team won first place in our division! Yay!!! Oh and on top of all that, look at all of this stuff!
It’s new toys! New frisbees and squeakies and a tug toy!
It was a really great weekend for me and everyone else on our team. All of the dogs ran and did great! I spent my first nights in a hotel, which wasn’t too bad because we got a room with two beds so I had a whole bed all to myself. I might have woken Amy up a few times barking, but, hey, I’m a dog, that’s what I do, I bark.
Oh, I’m sorry we don’t have any photos or video of the actual competition, we had exactly eight humans and all of the humans had jobs to do during all of our races. There should be plenty of video and photos from our next tournament though because I think a lot of people are going to come out and watch the craziness that is flyball.
