Yay video!

I got screwed up at the end but the start went smoothly! So proud of my Didgeridoo!

Linds, you guys rocked it this weekend! Tons of awesome comments from people on the sidelines, can't wait to see how it goes next season for you!

The girls and I had a pretty good weekend, Zuma made the cut for freestyle which means we had to do a second round. She ended up placing 9th overall and 9th in Open Freestyle. I can't believe we broke the top 10!! Naperville draws in some of the best competitors in the country, it was incredibly difficult competition. That was my goal and didn't think we would be able to accomplish that this year, so looks like I need to come up with a new goal for next year! Baby dog Zinga placed 13th in Open Freestyle, very proud of her.

A lot of things went wrong during our rounds, a lot went right. I'm still feeling like I'm just getting my feet under me, still feeling like I'm fumbling around this season. There are so many tiny details that need to be worked out that it is becoming overwhelming. I'm looking forward to the end of the season, just so that we can really focus on improving the things we desperately need to improve on.

Two more comps yet this year, next weekend is the Minnesota Disc Dog Club State Champs, Zuma and I are currently in first place for the Club Cup. Hoping to hold onto that ranking and bump up Zinga a few places too. Then we just have a Skyhoundz Disc Dogathon 2014 Qualifier in October. Two more comps. I need to hold it together for that much longer.

ETA: here's some video.

This is Zuma's first round of freestyle from Saturday. I broke two big rules: don't try things again (I shouldn't have even attempted that footstall with it so slippery out there) and don't point your butt at the judges for a footstall!!

Here's Zinga's round. I forgot half of her routine, oh well. She's going to get a whole new routine over the winter, it's too similar to Zuma's right now.

Everybody looks so good!! It's so much fun to watch these. Zuma looks really awesome and the puppies are coming along really nicely.
I really really don't need another dog sport but I really want to teach Payton a lot of these moves...

Seriously awesome watching all of those routines, they look fantastic!

Really good inspiration, that's for sure!

It's so much fun watching everyone and Sara and her girls are just amazing. Especially considering they just started last year!

Oh! And Nina with Rue the Coolie was there too! She did great, she's got an awesome arm on her. So much merle.

I found one last comp in Oct to go to and it's a Skyhoundz DiscDogathon Qualifier so I'll be going to that! Be the first time we'll be competing in Open

My completely novice advice to all the people in this thread that have been avoiding competitions because you aren't ready? GO!!! It's so much fun! Everyone is super nice, you learn a ton and just getting your dog out there and playing is a rush! Do it!
