I decided to get a professional shot of Harry at our last flyball tournament at the end of September...it was the last competition of the year and we went out with a...well, not so much a bang...more like the sound of a deflating balloon! One of our dogs had hurt himself so couldn't run (nothing serious, I think he had cut his pad a little)...the stand in doggy wasn't ready for compatitions and had a good old time but we came last every race! Harry gained a couple of hundred more points though....we will be looking at getting his Flyball dog Graduate award early next season!
Thanks all, no the dogs didn't mind a bit that we were losing!! Harry ran exceptionally well...apart from not picking his feet up...do you see the foam wrapped strip of wood on the top of the jump? Harry breaks soooo many of those because he runs in to them...its like the jumps get in the way, I just see them flying up into the air as Harry runs to get his ball...I wouldn't mind but we have the lowest jump height possible (6 inches) because of our small dog in the team and long legged Harry doesn't even get over them! Im pleased I got a picture of him jumping them for once!!
Dave, I didn't take the pic, they have a professional at some tournaments and I bought it. Bad scan though, the original looks much nicer!
oooh I know what you mean Jenna...it was that I completely forgot to renew Harry's membership with the British Flyball Assocoiation so it meant the whole team lost the points they'd gained over the previous 3 tournaments as it was all null and void because Harry wasn't a member. I did feel sooooo bad but the team were great and now just take the mick out of me about it...luckily they are in it for the fun and the points and awards are a bonus!
Thanks all for your comments...he loves it so much, I wish I had a video of him gearing up to run...he's so funny, he leaves marks in the grass where he kicks off from!
