This past weekend we traveled to Brown County, Indiana and did a demonstration of flyball at the Pet Walk held in Deer Run.
Everyone was very enthusiastic at the antics of our "trained flyball dogs" who appeared to have lost their minds. During the first demo, many of the dogs forgot how to navigate the jumps and bring the ball back. The dogs had to deal with wet grass and a misty rain that was falling. I think it was just too much for them to deal with right at the start.
However, on the next demos every dog was doing great, including Frank the Boston and Jollie who were out for the very first time demonstrating their flyball skills.
During the Pet Walk Event, there were games the dogs could play. We all had a great time at the Fastest Fetch, The Shoe Sniff, (Agility)Doggie Dash, Potato Race, and various other contests. Some of the dogs even won awards because they topped all the other dogs there.
Spirit brought home 2 medals - 1st place in Fastest Fetch and 2nd Place in Doggie Dash.
Raven brought home 1 place in Potato Race
Dixie won a prize for the Most Unusual Ears
Sam brought home 2nd place in Fastest Fetch.
A good time was had by all, and we hope they will invite us back next year!
