New York Agility

This is a trip down memory lane. This was my 2nd favorite agility trial with Travis. We traveled from Georgia to New York for the National Greyhound Specialty. The big draw for making the 15 hour drive was that the Specialty was followed by an all breed, four day agility and obedience trial. I had so much fun showing off Travis at a place that had never seen him before. My favorite compliment was "We don't know who you are or where you are from, but you and your greyhound are awesome!"

On the first day, Travis earned a double qualifying score with two 1st places. The next day he earned another with a 1st place and a 2nd place. The next 3 runs we did not qualify, but we redeemed ourselves and qualified in our last run. I wish the quality was better, but this was originally on tape, transferred to DVD, and then stripped off as a computer file.

For any new readers, Travis passed away July 26th, 2008.

They were right! He was awesome!!!

I am sorry he isn't with you any more. That summer must have been a really bad one, that was also when I lost my first dog. :/

Yes I see what you mean. I would have rear crossed the tunnel and called her name in the tunnel so she knew which direction to find me when she got out.
