Pet-n-You Dog Carnival Day 2006

19 November 2006

D weather was good enough without any rain, but unfortunately the big field was not being utilize due to its bad condition. The main event of the day was Agility and Obedience Trial, judge by the honourable Mr. Tan from Singapore, together with some creative K9 X-games for active canine participation. Once I reach the field, I met Shirley with both her Russell and Jojo. To my surprise, she really did forbide Gab from coming to prevent him from distracting the dogs performance.

~ Its the opportunity to work for food now! ~

The day started off with Groovy's specialties, 'd Musical Freestyle' and he ended up the session with another 'Hop on the foot'. Flyball demonstration was being cancelled as the equipment was under repair. Later, we manage to witness the protection dog performance by Henna, the Belgian Malinois. At the same time, the Obedience Trial was ongoing, which Amber was participating in. I met alot of fur friends around, which include, Vodka, Benji, Cha Cha, Baby, Hero, Casper, Yen Yen, Husky and also Silky gangs.



~ Hop on d foot stunt ~

This is the first time we had 'D highest jumper'. I was pretty confident in this as I always declare my Pacco trademark was a 'Horizontal Leaper', but at the same time was pretty worried that she might dissapoint me. However, with Groovy hibernating at the bench, Pacco manage to emerge as the champion for both the 'Highest' and 'Longest' Jumper with ease. The record was 8 feet width and 28 inch high. We give the 'Ultimate Recall' a miss as I planned to preserved our energy to other games.

When its time for 'The Top Dog Model', which is some kind of 'Dog Fashion Show', we were so surprise to see Groovy participating in it, cause usually he is the one teasing Russell and Pacco being the 'Fashion victim'. Wonder how's his thought this time when the situation is vice versa.


~ Can you give me some air-cond, plz ~


So now its the time for the serious one, Agility Trial. Pacco took part in the Basic Jumper - Maxi class, which constitute of 6 dogs. During the first run, Pacco speed off as I released the leash when we came to the tyre and tunnel obstacle. I would describe it as a disaster. While for the 2nd run, which is also our last chance, I tried to control her pace and use treat to prevent her from running away. We aim for a clean sheet of result without any faults. When the result was out, the were only 3 dogs with 0 faults and Pacco secured herself with a 3rd place. This means that among the 3 dogs that did not commit any faults, Pacco was the slowest, which was kinda embarassed for her as 'D Roadrunner' title holder. However, I breath a sigh of relief when I knew I manage to bring home a trophy. While for the Agility Novice class, Groovy, d Land Torpedo and Russell, d Most Original successfully claimed their second consecutive agility title by emerging as the champion and runner-up.

~ 16 inch is just peanut ~



~ Oh, Mr. Tan, this is the prize d owner is dreaming of for the past few months ~

The day ended up with the game 'Top Trick Dog'. I had actually planned a few new moves, but it didn'y turn out as expected as Pacco doesn't seems to be interested at all. She even refuse to do a 'Bark'. So we just manage to complete a normal forward and backward weaving and ended it up with a 'jump over the back', which she need a 2nd attempt to successfully leap over my back. And we get ourselves a 2nd place.



~ Hi there, can u see me? ~



~ So owner can stop worrying about her pocket for at least 2 months ~

Finally everything had ended and Russell and Jojo can enjoyed themselves splashing around the lake, while Groovy couldn't help himself but keep retrieving his ball over and over and over and over ................ again until it doesn't seems to end, WITHOUT ANY REWARD! What about Pacco, she just having her sweet time strolling and sniffing around the park until she wander off the the main road without me noticing.


~ My trophy can actually look even more stunning, if the camerawoman had more skill ~
