Energizer Disc Trial

Yesterday my Mom and I went to compete in a CDDA disc trial. What a great day! All the way there my Mom was admiring the turning leaves, and geese flying in formation, saying what a beautiful fall day it was. Well since I'm not a bird dog, and I don't see the colours like she does, I will move on to the important stuff...Disc Dog!!

There were 2 trails held in one day, so lots of classes. In trial 1 we did Novice Single Disc and 2 games. In our single disc we had a poor first round, but a great second round giving us only 34 points but still a 4th out of 15 dogs. We got a second in one of the 2 games with some great prizes.

In trial 2 we again did Novice Single Disc and ended up 1st!! We had 2 great rounds and 53 points! Mom was so happy with me. I was just happy she threw the disc better this time!! Also we did an attempt at freestyle!! We have only tried it once before back in July, and have not practiced since but we entered anyway! Well Mom was glad we did, 2nd place and a Qualifying score!!! Her belly is getting big now that she is 6 1/2 months pregnant so it was a fairly low key routine!! And again we won some great prizes. Liam the toddler was happy with the big stuffed Energizer bunny, and daddy was happy with the golf balls and golf umbrella. I also won my Mom a new doggie tea cup and lots of doggie treats for myself, Chase and Kirya. Of course there were plaques and ribbons too.

All in all it was a fun day. I hung out with my niece Tink and grand niece Kessie in their canopy. Thanks so much to Shona for all the amazing photos, and to Amanda and Natasha who filmed all my runs. My Mom is having problems getting the video loaded, but she will add them if she can.
