Default Fun day at Woofstock!

Today we went to Woofstock and had tons of fun!
Our team was racing in a flyball tournament, but Ozzy wasn't in it, so we got to run around and explore everything.

One of my former teammates was there and she sprayed Ozzy's tail orange.
You would NOT believe how many people asked me if his fluorescent orange tail was natural!


He also got to try out a little bit of agility. The club I was looking into joining was there and they had a few things set out for people to try out. There were two jumps, a tunnel, some weave poles, and a little seesaw. Ozzy was a pro after five minutes! LOL (Okay, not really - but he did awesome and the instructor was impressed!) I wish I had Mom catch it on video.

The first time he went through the tunnel, the instructor held him on one side while I called him from the other side. The second time, I put him in the opening, had him wait, then called him while I was running alongside it. He went right through it!

He already knows 'over,' so the jumps weren't really anything new for him.
He was working the weave poles better than I was! They were tilted so it was easier for the dogs, but I kept hitting my head on them. I'll have to think of another word for those (probably 'poles?') since his 'weave' command is going through my legs. That wouldn't work too well in agility! Haha.

I was a little worried he'd jump off the seesaw when it was going down, but I guided him on it, told him to wait when he got to the other side, and he never missed a beat! After a few times, the instructor didn't hold it (so it went down slower to not freak out any doggies). He did perfect. Didn't mind it moving at all like I thought he might!

I saw a Klee-Kai for the first time in person today, also. (Two, actually!) I had to get at least one pic, since if my dad EVER gets a dog, he wants a Klee-Kai. This little guy's owner was telling us how she LOVES him to death, but that he's the WORST DOG EVER.


There was also a little booth where you could get your dog's pic with Santa! Since my Santa photo from Petco last year SUCKED (it was blurry and out of focus), I wanted another one. I also took my own photo, in case the one the photographer took wasn't any good.
But the print came out nice, so I'm happy! Here's the one I took.


Everybody had lots of fun today. Got tons of free stuff, Aiden got to go out (and he didn't get carsick at all!) and now everyone's tired and happy.
Except for Mom - she wasn't very happy about getting peed on three times. LOL

I think I like the one I took more than the print from the photographer's. He used flash, and I HATE flash. Haha.
I'll take this pic and let them use it to advertise photo cards and stuff at work.

So cool! My Pom is my heart dog and my favorite dog along with the GSD, they are extremely devoted and loyal little guys and I will always have one.

Here's my little boy, Bruiser and he's NOT named after the dog in legally blonde lol... He's named after the Aussie in flight of the navigator if anyone still remembers that movie. One of my favorites!

I wish I could do that stuff with my Pom but he's got bad knees.
