I haven't checked in here in too long, but wanted to share some really cool photos and experience!

Patton and I competed last friday to qualify for the freestyle disc portion of the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge at Purina farms. It is an annual event of dock diving, fetch it, agility, weave races, jack russell races, and flying disc, with only two regional qualifiers and a last chance qualifier for dock and disc at Purina the day before the competition. We placed first in the qualifier and were invited to be a competitor for the IDC, which is heavily attended by spectators and televised! We got an awesome player's pack; a really nice backpack, few bags of dog food, etc. They fed us all weekend and it was a fun experience with some awesome friends! We didn't land on the podium, but being one of 6 disc competitors, being the only female to compete, and having the largest dog was worth the experience alone! A few great friends took the podium and I couldn't be happier for them. Here are photos!

All of the competitors get a cupcake with their dog's name on it at the banquet!
