Schutzhund Ipoh feat. PAAP 16th Agility Trial

The ground that host the joint Schutzhund Ipoh and PAAPP 16th Agility Trial was the splendid Iskandar Polo Club. Mountains, lakes, enormous field, yummy dinner and lunch provided, what can you ask for more?

Did someone said 'lake'? Scruffy and Ginger wouldn't let go a chance for a good swim. Scruffy practically staring, whinning and screaming at the lake the entire evening, dying to get wet.

~ The aqua babe having a splash before the trial commence ~

~ The course was getting ready and we pose a nice group picture before disembark into mission ~

Across the agility field, 80% of the ground was utilize by the Schutzhund trial. It was a knee-dissolving sight for my owner. What it takes to capture a zoomie dog on that ground? We dare not imagine. She had settled for not admitting me as her dog if I ever tried running across. Who's dog? Oh, it must be stray.

~ The enormous field awaiting my 'zoomies' ~

~ Someone who apparent had zero faith in me, was facing nervous breakdown ~

On the first day of trial, Novice and Gambler were being ran. Pet-n-You gang comprised of Groovy, Kimi and Archer swept the Top 3 prizes. Just like their usual standard. As for me, I stayed at the sideline until I nearly dozed off. Wake me up when you guys are done, okay?

I only ran for Basic Jumper on the next day. Since the yummy chicken liver can't last another day, she only had biscuit at her disposal. On my 1st run, I ran a clean 'zoomie'. Excuse me, I just saw my most favourite family on this green earth, I gotta says a 'hello' and 'congratulations'. I heard she cursed 'Oh shit!' under her breath. During my 2nd run, although with Groovy out of sight, her confidence level had reduced from 50% to 10%. Phew! We manage to get over it, with a fault at the tyre and settled for 3rd. Mine you, there were only 3 dogs anyway.

The headlines of the day was ofcourse Groovy who successfully obtained his Malaysia Champion Agility (MACH).

~ Groovy attained his maiden title on his 5th barkday. Groovy M.A.CH. ~

~ Ginger had one of her best run to date in Novice. Great rear cross there and they won the Basic Jumper. ~

~ Kimi says: Not tomorrow. Not today. But EVERYDAY. ~

~ Susan in tennis outfit running 2 dogs simultaneously. What a great stamina. ~

~ The scenario whereby handler is the one 'barking' instead. Bark collar, anyone? ~

All excitement had came to an end. After collecting our precious dog food, was time to pose again.

Hi Pacco
Nice pictures. Groovy looks great. You and ms handler are right in sync. I hope her barking doesn't bother the neighbors.

We love seeing you among all those light colored pups. Ms. Owner needs a chill pill prior to the trials. Maybe she wouldn't bark at you so much.
