Bean FD, FDX!

I picked up Bean at this flyball tournament a year ago. I was so very much hoping that he would be able to debut there this year. I have been kind of… remiss… in training him, but he is so smart and so athletic that it didn’t take much to train him. He’d only been on a real flyball box a few times and had never run with dogs in the other lane before Friday night “mat time” at the tournament. But like a true born and bred flyball puppy, he did great.

Here he is in his first race. He ran start because then we only had to worry about one other dog. The lineup is Bean, Lyelah, Memphis, Deemer. They ran somewhere around 19 seconds.

He got his first two flyball titles, clocked a personal best of 4.1 seconds, and made his mama very very proud.

Steve ran well also, posting a 4.0 for the first time in awhile. Our team took first place in Division 3 which was very exciting. It was an all-around good flyball weekend. Four dogs and a tent. How could it not be?

    Good boy Bean! Your dogs are the coolest.

    I love the photo – the bullies don’t have a care in the world, the collies look slightly worried about whether they’re doing it right. Silly critters.

    Luce and Mushroom don’t look stressed at all.

    Can’t tell about Bean and Steve.

    Cool shirt.

    Haha I love that shirt. My sister got it for me.

    Bean was two point five seconds from kissing me, which is why his face looks funny. Steve thinks sitting still is dumb. The pit bulls don’t look stressed to me at all.

    The Coconut Classic reigns as the best flyball party of the year.

    Wow! What fast dogs!! I love the photo of all four in the tent. We really need to tent camp in the fall, for the dogs’ sake. Too much Boy Scout camping the last couple of years. Hm. I wonder if the Scout troop will take my dogs next time they go …
