Malaysia 3rd Dog Olympic Day 2008

29 June 2008

~ Face it. This not the worst thing you caught me doing. As I maintained my 100% elimination rate on grass ~

We thought of delaying this post until she manage grab as many photos as possible from someone else. At the same time, she's afraid of amnesia and forgotten what to brag about. This year, the Dog Olympic Day was not as crowded as previous year, might be due to the MKA Dog Show scheduled on the same day.




We signed up for the Agility Trial. No class being specify, only maxi and mini dogs category. My pal claimed that it looks like a Snooker course, although I had totally no idea about it. All I heard before is Steeplechase. The fact is, the course is a non-regular agility course. Seeing Hannah have to 'fuss' aka 'heel' from one end of the ring to the opposite end just to do the next obstacle without going off-course, speak volumes. Bravo to the teams who manage to pull this off with minimum faults. Congratulations to Amber and Cami who appear to be among the top finishers.

Even after 10 contestant had finished their run, my handler's vision of the course remain very hazy. To save her from embrassment, standing in the middle wondering where to head next, I decided to take off by myself running and circling the field on my own. She stare at me with her laser eye that's capable of burning through my head. 'Oooops, I did it again'. So she paid RM30 just to let me put my paws on the dog walk and A frame.



~ She was trying to force some positive karma to my head ~

However, that was no time for regret, mourning or busy pissing each other. We composed ourselves and concentrate on our remaining workload of the day. As usual, I succeed in Simon Say again for the 3rd time and the game was getting more and more obedience orientated. Previously, their emphasize alot on 'down stay'. 'Down stay' while your owner jump over and running around you. This time, they emphasize on 'stand stay'. 'Stand stay' while your owner run around you and walk away 20 steps.

There was also hurdle race, which I bobbled twice during the course, thus I didn't stand a chance. But Top 3 prizes all won by my own pals, Groovy, Cami and Russell, which was sweet. I got pretty embrassed with myself as I own the longest legs among them. Next there was 60 weave poles challenge. She was so worried that I might pop out, until she tried to guide me into every single poles. I completed it clean, but was so slow. Trust Pacco to know when to use the right speed. When she wants 'slow', I go maniac, when she wants 'fast', I'm taking my own sweet time. That's my way to keep her feeling entertain.

~ A group photo with my friends along with our hard earned medals ~


I only earned 2 bags, while she eagerly went to answer a Trivia question and got me another bag. Obviously she's shameless and will do whatever it takes for the dog food. By the end of the day, that's what matter most for us, another 3 months of food supply.



~ Me with a decent haul. 3 bags, not bad huh? ~

Nice work Pac at Simon Says n fastest Recall.

PPcom should hv left d agility course design to d appointed judge, which is d norm in all trials.

Wonder what they r trying to proove by designing such an absurd course. No wonder their events always hv a tinge of bias. Luckily, they only organise agility trials once a year.

Gussie said...
