~ Are you ready for action? ~
13 May 2007
This time the Happy Dog's food is sponsoring the event. Wonder will I turn out to be an absolutely happy tail wagging mutt after I consumed their product. Then probably we had better hope in the 'Waggiest Tail' contest.
~ Food and trophy! I'm going to bring you back home very soon. ~
~ Me and Dookie ~
~ Yen Yen, my JT mate, dropped by to give his support ~
We signed up for all the 3 maxi category, Basic Jumper, Novice Jumper and Novice Agility. Eventhough the percentage of us completing the offleash dash is down to 'impossible', we still wish to give our support.
~ Hellwork to music demo by Groovy ~We started off with the Basic Jumper category. However, with 2 attempts we still failed to get a clear run. 1st attempt, nearly running off the ring, while 2nd attempt, knocking down a hurdle, which was definately a major let down, as my history record, I had NEVER knocked down a 16 inch hurdle before. This really put me into shame as a 'High Jump' defending champion.

Next was the Novice Jumper, not much different from the initial one, with just an additional collapsed tunnel. We had been doing loads of practise at our own backyard with my owner weirdly designed DIY collapsed tunnel, but I think it worked out pretty well, as I manage to go through that obstacle smoothly during our 1st attempt. With Bank, the Golden Retriever, getting an early out-of-energy after the his 1st run, knocking down 2 hurdles, I manage to clinch the title Novice Jumper Champion. Finally, that's something we can celebrate for.

Completing 4 rounds of attempts really got me exhausted. Wonder should I consider switching over to the other field, which is the Obedience. Notice that my pals over there is having such a good time.

Our Novice Agility was a total disaster and I feel that my owner wished to chop me into 18 pieces. Not to mentioned that during the 1st attempt, I ran out from the ring and went for a 'poo' and for the 2nd attempt, I went to yet another 'stroll' out of the ring again. While the 2 other participant, both Border Collies, Angel and Chester completed their trial with style. Well, I mean you got to agree with the fact that we're totally in a different league and their owner are professional dog trainer. That's the reason why I choose to run away. While, Groovy the undispute No.1, claimed his 3rd consecutive Novice Agility Champion title.
~ Erm.....can u excuse me for a second? ~
During the X-Game Challenges, it was our last chance to grab as many food back home as possible. But we skip the Fastest Recall and Fashion Show. We took part in the Top Trick Dog and Longest Jumper, and manage to clinch both the title. Yet again, I'm the defending champion of the Longest Jumper with the same record, 8 feet.
~ I will get crucified if I fail in this ~
~ Chester, yet another Border Collie who excel in agility ~
So finally its time for the long awaited Prize Giving Ceremony. This is the first time we manage to brought home 2 trophy and a 15kg bag of food.
~ Hey, Mr. Badri, do u still remember me, d black rascal? ~
Anyway, with me going home with that gigantic 15kg food, the entire household thought that I was the biggest winner of the day. Thus, the amount of food was kinda misleading guide. So I think after the hectic event, is finally the time for me to get some good rest, cause I estimate that the haul can keep me full for approximately 6 months period.
But guess that I'm wrong. My owner swear to 'whoever' yet again, that if next time we fail, she'll bang herself on the nearest tree trunk and just before she do that she'll also make sure that I will get BBQed!
