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?
