More flyball today at a tournament near Battle which is not far from Hastings.
Now for those of you that know your English history that is the site of a famous battle (hence the name) which took place in 1066. Harold the newly crowned Anglo-Saxon King fought and lost against the invader a Norman called William who then became King.
As you can see its lovely countryside around there.
These were taken from the field we were racing which overlooks a nearby village.
But back to the flyball, my team did quite well coming 5th in our division. And I am getting faster with a best time today of 4.8 seconds.
The boss thinks there was another English theme today, a literary one.
Check out the nice Dr Jekyll
And doing Flyball, Mrs Hyde...
Chip, Dare & Auntie Breeze are all racing tomorrow.
Well what an exciting 3 days! We were in Warwickshire at the 2010 Championships and we camped in a tent in really big field.
There was 41 divisions with 6 teams in each division and between 4-6 dogs in each team. So there were loads and loads of other dogs and it was obviously my job to bark at every dog that walked past our camping site.
We had lots of spare time to play whilst we waited to race so me and Auntie Breeze had a nice game of tuggy. (I always let her win)
Chip occupied himself by rubbing himself upside down on the carpet.
Auntie Breezes Team Lightning Sprites ran on Friday in division 30 and they got a 5th place. She was quite tired after the racing, must be an age thing.
I then raced on Saturday with my team Lightning Flash in division 20 and we got a third place. We all all given a rosette and some food as our prize. I ran most of the races and everyone was very pleased with me.
Chip and Dare were in Grease Lightning and raced on Sunday in division 8. They did really well winning their division. They got a rosette and a trophy and a big bag of food.
Chip of course was super swift again and there were teams from all over the Britain and most of the ones he was racing against had not seen him before. So they had a big shock when such a small dog ran so fast.
This is Chip doing a very quick turn on the flyball box.
Also racing down to get his ball.
And of course not forgetting Dare in Racing mode who always enjoys himself at flyball tournaments.
I did enjoy the camping but its nice to be back home again. Now where has the boss hidden that food we won...
We were back at Fairview farm again today for the second of the two Jets tournaments. We had a really nice time again. Dares team came third in Division 3 and my team won Division 5!
This is me and my team mates Merlot, Derby, Jack and Ruby (that's me on the end)
And this is me having a break between races, do you like the colour of my tuggy lead?
Even though Chip was not racing today in one of the teams (he is doing it tomorrow) He came along anyway to watch us not wanting to be outdone he took part in a singles competition and came second overall in the small dogs racing with a time of 4.63 seconds.
This is him with Leo one of our teammates waiting to start his singles racing.
Well I had a really exhausting and exciting weekend. We were all racing at a tournament in Stockbridge, Hampshire run by the Jets. My team was Lightning Flash and we came second in our Division which was great.
As you can see I do get a bit excited when I am waiting to have my go.
And even more excited when I actually race.
I raced loads and loads of times and everyone said I did really well.
I even got all my paws on the box for a good swimmers turn, which is faster but also much better for me to avoid injuries.
I am looking forward to going back there again next weekend for some more racing.
