A disc dog, dock diving, or a lure coursing club.

Pig is going to a fun-run tomorrow to try coursing, weather permitting. I'm extremely excited about it, but also a little sad because even if she loves it, we won't really get another opportunity to try it again.

As far as tangible things go, I think we're set. It would be nice to find something that goat-dog could play with and not destroy/try to ingest. Something tells me that I won't find anything though.

Ooo, would a new leather couch fall under dog products? They would be using it. And it would be a lot easier to clean fur/drool off of leather than fabric.

Yes. Me too! Something within a reasonable driving distance.

There IS a Dock Diving group in Hudson Valley NY, and I think near Buffalo? I also think I've seen lure coursing events in my interwebs travels...NY is just a little too far for me.

The pool HVDD uses is about 3 hours away. Not terribly far, but still not doable right now. Someone really needs to get on inventing a teleporter. I would settle for an extremely fast hovercraft/flying car.

I'm hoping to get more information on lure coursing in the area when I go to the fun run. It seems like the group running it is for purebred sighthounds, but there will be other breeds/mutts participating tomorrow. Maybe someone there will have advice for getting started.

If you ever do decide to make the drive let me know. HVDD is like 40 minutes from me.

Oh yeah, it's about two hours from me. If Romeo is still fit in the spring I might take him out there for some practice. Maybe we should all do a meetup, rent the pool for a little bit .

Where is the fun run?

Well I have 4 Ellas Lead collars coming, but I do need some new leashes.

Would like some leather ones from Ellas lead and some of the black nubby biothane ones for hiking like these:http://www.allk-9.com/all-weather-bi...eash-p-89.html

And I want another collar from here since one of my fosters ate the one I had:

http://www.carpecanem.com/store/index.php/item_42

And have to have some leather martingales from here:

http://www.celtichound.co.uk/

And probably some more cloth martingales, I like Collarmania, 2Hound, Nancy B, and a bunch of others from my Greyhound board. And Fetching Tags as they all need new ID tags.

A new Freezer so we can go back to raw food.

And agility equipment for the back yard! We gotta find a use for it since the dogs rarely go back there.

Of course...I just had another look for Lure Coursing and found a club that does it like twice a month in CT! Buuut...they do it 10-5 Sat and Sun...I have class now Saturdays and work Sundays. Maybe I'll have to rearrange my schedule for some weekend.

The event is being held by big apple sighthounds association out on long island.

I would totally be down for a meet up sometime.
