View Full Version : Big News for The Flying Sausage!

07-24-2006, 12:11 PM
This past weekend Peaches and I had a girls weekend! We traveled to Madison, WI so Peaches could compete in her very first Flyball Tournament on Saturday and Sunday!!!! :banana: I was SO nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. We haven’t even been to a tournament just to watch. Peaches wasn’t supposed to compete until this Fall. However, there was a vacant spot on the team, so they stuck her in. Well, the big news is that…


The title is FD (Flyball Dog.) I am beyond ecstatic! :woohoo: She even accomplished that on the first day of the tournament. Flyball tournaments are insane. The thing I was most worried about was that the environment would be overwhelming for her. There are over a hundred dogs there…most of them are barking…plus they are pumped up. I wasn’t sure what Peaches would think of all that. However, she did awesome! I couldn’t have asked for more from her. Plus on both days our team took 1st place in our division! :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:

Peaches didn’t race in the afternoon on Sunday…she was exhausted! She was sleeping in between races. Plus, she hit her back legs on a jump in the warm-up run, and no one wanted her to get hurt. I think she was too tired by that point to even jump over with those little legs…poor Miss Thing it was all a lot to take in. We’ll work on her endurance, but I was just so pleased she didn’t miss any jumps or drop the ball, etc. :appl: She spent the afternoon prancing around in her pink All Star Princess shirt! :cutiepie2

The other thing that was so great about the weekend was that Peaches was the only doxie there since very few doxies do Flyball. So, lots of people were coming up to me saying how cute she is and how they can’t believe how fast she is! I was just bursting with pride. :love11: Although I may have to change her name to The Screaming Sausage! When she is in the line-up to run, she screams! OMG, it is so loud! People watching the race were looking our way like “Are you hurting her?” :shocked:

There was absolutely no way for me to get pics or video of her competing because John didn’t come and everyone on my team was busy while we were racing. :sosad: If I find a pic of her posted by anyone else, I’ll share with you. However, here are a few pics from the weekend:

The brag board! Can you find her brag?

Completely exhausted by the end of the first day!
