Muddy flyball

We had some training today but as it had rained and we all got a bit muddy.

This is Dare clean before we started. He is not really a good colour to run around in mud.

This is Dare waiting his turn to run during training.

This is the muddy training shoot we used to get the tennis balls from.

Most of the Mud ended up on us !

My Sister Abbie

No this is not me its my Sister! Can you see the close family resemblance?

Abbie lives in Essex with her family and as you can see she enjoys the odd relaxing moment.

And lying outside in the Sun.

Abbie has also been in a show and won Rosettes for the Best condition dog and best Breed.

She is quite the Beauty Queen. (it must run in the family!)

More wet windy weather

Flyball training was abandoned today because of the wet windy weather. This is the car park where we train.

But compared to Cumbria, near where I was born which has had really serious flooding this week, the weather is not really that bad down here.

As soon as we got home the Sun came out but it was still very windy as you can see from my tail !

Windy walk

Its been very windy this week and also very wet. This is me and Auntie Breeze out for a walk on the paths today as it was to wet to go on the fields.

Unfortunately Auntie Breeze was not very happy (as you can see from her expression) I think its because she was expecting to go and play catch the ball in the park. So she moaned all the time we were out.

Or it could be because it was drizzling and she is not that keen on getting wet...

Discover Dogs Flyball 2

Just been sent another video of the racing and you can see Auntie Breeze and Chip in this one. They are last dog in the 1st & 2nd races.

Discover Dogs Flyball

Auntie Breeze and Chip have just got back from the Flyball racing at Earls Court. This is a picture of the crowd in the main arena.

The racing is slightly different from BFA flyball as this is organised by the Kennel Club. The jumps are a fixed height (bigger for Chip) and no electronic lights. This is a youtube video of the racing from Saturday. Chip is the last dog on this side. You can see its him because his is the little black blur...

This is Breeze waiting to race.

There was lots of other displays and also stands showing lots different breeds of Dogs. I have been bought a nice new lead and collar for my walks.

Wet week

Its been a bit of a wet week this week so only road walks.

This weekend Auntie Breeze and Chip are taking part in Flyball races at the Kennel Clubs, Discover Dogs Show at Earls Court in London in front of a crowd. So hopefully they will have some pictures of it to put on my blog.

This is me having a chill out this week, if you look carefully you can see Dare in his bed.

Autumn Flyball

More indoor Flyball at Maidstone in Kent. All the three teams of our Teams got their fastest ever times which was really good.

Chip got his Flyball Dog Intermediate (FDI) title certificate awarded to him after the racing today for getting over 1000 points in flyball races (Dogs gets points awarded for each race depending on how fast they go).

This is Chip out enjoying the Autumn sun.

Old Bedfont Church

We pass this old Church in the car from time to time. Apparently one was first built in Saxon times on the site but the oldest part of this one is from 1150 (sounds old to me!)

There are lots of story's about what the peacock shaped trees are about. One is that they were pruned that shape in memory of two sisters who used to go to the church long, long ago.

and you can also see the English flag flying.

One Today

As you may have already guessed I am one year old today. I got a very nice Birthday card which is now stood near my basket and some very tasty chews.

We also went for a long walk, which I think was the best part of the day.

Thanks for all your Birthday wishes, Wizz :-)

Sunny walk

Well thanks for all the sunny thoughts as the rain stopped today and it was a bit brighter.

Me and Dare were able to have a nice dry walk together.

This picture shows the really bright wall down one of the alleys, this was actually painted on the wall by request, its not just graffiti.

Its a big day tomorrow, can anybody guess why ?

The morning after

Today heavy cold rain arrived with the start of November.

Last nights Halloween pumpkin looks a bit sad and bedraggled

And when I did pop outside between the rain squalls you could see the next lot of rain coming along fast in those dark clouds.

Would be nice to have a bit of sun tomorrow.
