Battle

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.
