Just Dogs Live

We got back from the weekends camping late yesterday evening. We had two days flyballing in Cambridgeshire at the Just Dogs live Show. We got the big tent out for the first time since last year.



The weather was very nice most of the time and we had a great competition. This is me with my team mates from Lightning Flash on race day.


Obviously had some more action pictures taken of me in full flow.


Apparently it is quite hard to get shots of you in mid flight going over the jumps but we got two from Saturday.


As you know I do get quite excited when waiting to race


And I can get a bit tricky to hold on to.



But I always calm down just before I zoom off fortunately (well about 1 second before...)


We all raced over the weekend, Auntie Breeze and her team got a third place in their division.


But Dares team did the best of all our pack gaining a 1st place in their division which was very impressive.


Chips team got a second place in their division despite the weather getting quite hot on Sunday. He was certainly flying.


The boss also got a nice video of Chip racing with a better camera than we normally use which shows just how fast Chips team were going.





But perhaps best of all I got to meet a reader of this blog who races with Tyne Tailwaggers Flyball Team. She sees my Dad Adam race regularly with his Club and is a Fan of English Shepherds which is obviously very nice of her.


Hopefully we will see her again at the British Championships later in the year.

Anxious to be off, you looked fiercely determined in your picture. Congratulations to you all.

Great action shots and video! I can't imagine trying to photograph the blur that is you (and Breeze, Dare and Chip)

We hope to see you at the British Campionships, too! (virtually speaking, fo course)

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

It looks like flyball is so much fun for you guys! Well done to everyone for their placings in their divisions too :)

Now that I've been in a park that hosts agility trails, I can imagine what it was like to be there! Good going!

This is very interesting as I am taking my puppy Tess to meet a local flyball team at the end of the month to see if it's something we would like to do one day.
