More Farnham Flyball

This is a You Tube video taken from me racing at the weekends tournament. You can also see what lovely weather we had on Saturday at the venue.



And these are some more pictures of photogenic Dare racing on Sunday. If you don't know he is a Blue Merle Border Collie. Unfortunately he is completely deaf in one ear so he does not know the direction sounds are coming from.


He has quite a determined look when he races.


And quite a nice turn off the flyball box.



Dare also has a very strong 'collie eye' and he likes to stare particularly at movement so he has a bit of a battle when running down the lane to stop himself from looking across at the other dog who is racing against him.

So sometimes he just has to have to have a peak as he crosses the finish line ...

That looks fun....you guys are so quick, we loved the video. Also love the photo's of Dare, especially the one where he is in mid air over the jump.

Wizz, you are so, so fast! Lola is very jealous of your super-quick stride over the jumps.

Dare is a very striking boy. I love his merle colouring, and his collie eye that makes him want to watch the fast movement!

Loved seeing the flyball and if I was youngerand had a younger dog would definitely be involved in this sport. Thanks so much for sharing.

Gosh1 You are soooooooo fast Wizz!

That's a beautiful study of Dare. I didn't realize he has deaf in one ear.

Looks like bloggers going to let me comment, this time!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
