British Flyball Championships 2011

Wet had a great time at this years British Flyball Championships. It was a bit of a trek all the way up in the Midlands at a place called Arbury Hall near Nuneaton in Warwickshire but it was a very picturesque venue.


And guess who this English Shepherd is?



Its my Dad Adam he races for a team in the North of England so we tend to only see him at the British Championships. He is quite hansom apparently.




Auntie Breeze and Dare both raced in the same team on Friday and they got a 3rd place in their division which was a good start to the weekend.




I raced with my team on Saturday and we got a 4th place in our Division which was exciting (and hard work).



One of my jobs apart from the running is to encourage my team mates just before the racing starts.




Chips team then raced on Sunday and of course he showed off with his spectacular box turns.



And his super speed for such a little lad on the way back from the flyball box .



His team also got a third place but they were racing in division 8 so the result is very impressive.

This is a video of Chip and his team mates racing yesterday (he is the little dog running last)

Congratulations on all your wins. Chip is a blur of speed.

Are you sure Chip didn't take flying lessons? You're very like your Dad, Wizz ... handsome.
You must come to the Midlands again, there are all sorts of beautiful and historical houses dotted about.

Congratulations on the placements. Sounds like it was a really fun weekend.
I do have to say though, I wish our big national tournament (CanAm) was as close as everything is in your neck of the woods. It would take 37 hours for me to drive to our nationals...
