Default Didgeridoo!

I have to brag about Didgie for a minute:

We had a a Disc comp yesterday (And Chaz meet up, pictures to come), a Skyhoundz DiscDogathon Qualifier, and Didgie took first place in Freestyle earning us an invite to the DiscDogathon World Championship next year!

It was windy, cold and wet but she gave it her all and I'm just so proud of her. Not bad for her 4th competition!

One of the best parts was after one of the Disc dog guys I most admired came up and told me how much my relationship with Didgie showed when we were out there. Gave me warm fuzzies, especially hearing it from someone I look up to so much.

And it gets me all excited for a winter full of trick training.

Awesome! You guys have such a great repertoire! I aspire to one day be at that level with Leo. We only know a few tricks like spin and rebound so far.

Just curious, could you explain how it is scored?
Is it the number and complexity of tricks within the time limit? Is it completely a subjective judges score based on their overall impression of the routine? Do the tricks were Didgie does not catch the Frisbee still count for points?

The closest actual Disc Dog team is over an hour away (and that is without traffic), so I haven't made the plunge yet of actually practicing with people who know what they are doing. But definitely interested in learning more!

So it may have been from lack of sleep and exhaustion, but I totally teared up when you won. You two most definitely deserved it. I really hope that you decide to take her to Worlds.

I know I got some great photos of her to add to the collection (on Danielle's SD card, so get on that DJ!), but that is such a fantastic shot!
