Terrier Flyball...

Just had another good flyball weekend. We were just down the road in Berkshire and the sun came out finally which was very nice.


Fortunately flyball is not just about certain (very quick) dog breeds. Smaller breeds also make great flyball dogs and they lower the height of the jumps which benefits all their teammates.

For the first time on Saturday we ran all the Clubs terriers in the same team. Four Terrier brothers who are 9"/10"height dogs and Chip who is the smallest you can be at 7". But as you will see from this video not the slowest... (Chip is 2nd from last in the race).



And this a picture of the Terrier team, Lightning Ratpack. They got second place in their division which is very impressive.


Me and Dare also got second places in our own divisions and Auntie Breeze got a fourth place.

But flyball tournaments are not just about the racing you also get a chance to chill out and enjoy the scenery, which is very nice in this part of England. The boss thought this view looked a bit like France.


And we even had Red Kites flying overhead which untill recently were almost extinct in the UK but are now making a recovery in England.

That is a good looking team. I must admit that I am a bit partial to terriers...

Chip's little legs were going like the clappers. It's a joy to watch him run. Love the picture of the Kyte... I'm so pleased they're making a comeback.
