Cassidy's Mom Oh, and we had a new club member make her debut last weekend, so that was exciting. Patti and Mallory (black lab) had been to a couple of tournaments to just do warmups, and we finally put her in some heats so she got her first title - FD, Flyball Dog. She would have gotten her FDX, Flyball Dog Excellent, except that other dogs messed up so the team didn't make time. Mallory rocked it, though!

I ended up not racing Cuda, our co-captain JJ ran her since Cuda was staying with her and her pack over the weekend. We had a chance to practice a few box hits with her and JJ prior to the start on Saturday, and after initially looking a bit confused (we didn't set up any jumps, just the box), she figured it out and did great.

Halo got her Multi-Breed Champion-Gold on Saturday. No surprise, she was just over 300 points shy, so I knew if she was on a MB team she'd get it for sure. She ran MB all weekend, which was great - racking up those MB points! Up until the Pawdemonium tournament in May, she hadn't run on an MB team in a year and a half, so her MB points are way behind her Regular points. One of the dogs on Halo's team had to be re-run once on Saturday and once or twice on Sunday, so out of a possible 1250 MD & regular points she got at least 1178, and maybe over 1200. I didn't see the results of the last few races on Sunday since it started pouring and the scoreboard was taken down.

Marin Running Riot had 3 teams each day and all 3 placed first in their divisions on Saturday. Our Regular and MB teams placed first on Saturday and our Open team placed 2 after a 3-way tie breaker. We kicked butt!

blackshep We should! I'll start one.

That's terrible about your training place

Liesje We should just make a general flyball convo thread!

I miss flyball, our training center was destroyed in a tornado about a week ago. Also we have no tournaments this month and I have to miss BOTH tournaments next month (including Nationals) so I don't think I'm competing again until Sept. 20, that's forever! No idea how or where we will train

On topic...I saw Halo got another title over the weekend!

blackshep Caja, I'm on Border Patrol, I'm getting a pup from the repeat breeding of Trump x Focus. It's a BC x Whippet. Have you seen our A Team? Syber, Epic and Jive (from SRC) are full siblings from the first breeding.

I love your team's GSD's! They are drool-worthy! I'm so jealous. My girl can't do flyball, she melts down with the other dogs running. She's awesome on her own though.

Here's a puppy preview. lol

The one's that are almost solid black are from the Wow x Shaggy litter. They were born 1 day apart. Both litters bloodline wise are almost exactly the same, but the Wow one's look more Whippet. I decided to go with the tried and true, repeat breeding.

Ok, sorry for hijacking the thread, I'm terrible for that! :/
