New Fastest Time

We were at flyball racing again today. This time at Fairview Farm in Stockbridge which is about an hour away by car. Its down the M3 Motorway in Hampshire.

As you may have noticed I wear a liitle bit of equipment when racing. As well as the team harness I also wear some leg protectors which help to look after my stopper pads and dew claws. They also help support my joints when turning on the flyball box.



Speaking of flyball boxes we had a new one for racing today, all the way from Belgium. The Club brought it back from the European Championships last week.

Chip seemed to quickly get the hang of it, this is him doing one of his spectacular turns on the new box
.


And going super quick over the jumps.



We all had a very successful time today. Auntie Breeze's team got a first place in her division and Chips team got a fourth place in his.

Me and Dare raced in the same team today and we also got a first place which was all the more impressive as we were seeded bottom of our division.

I also got a new personal best race time of 4.20 seconds which most flyball people will tell you is a very quick time. I also did quite a lot of 4.30 second times today in races as well.

This a Video of me on our new flyball box today which must have helped improve my times.




We are back at the same venue again next week, hopefully the weather will stay fine again for that weekend.
