Riley's Television Debut

I am excited to report that the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge that Riley competed in has TV listings up!  Unfortunately, I have to wait another month.  For my local Atlanta friends, it appears that it will be airing on Sunday, June 12 at 1:00 PM on WSB (ABC).  I cannot wait to see it!

For Riley fans living elsewhere in the United States, you can find local listings at Bark Network.  Make sure you select "2011 Purina Incredible Dog Challenge" (next to first purple arrow).  That will change the location to "Centennial Olympic Park - Atlanta, GA" (purple box).  And then enter your zip code (second purple arrow).  Click Here.
I put in some random zip codes and the first air date I found was in Los Angeles area on May 15th, Sunday at 10 AM on channel KCBS (CBS).  Someone in southern California needs to be sure to watch and let me know if Riley gets decent air time.

Also, I have obtained quite a few photos from various sources of Riley at the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge and want to post the photos.
Thank you for all of the pictures Guy Gauthier (Photos 1 - 5, 17 - 19), Megan Underwood (Photos 6 - 12, 14 - 16), and Jennifer Gregg (Photo 13).

Beautiful pictures!!! She looks like she's having a great time :)

I'll be sure to check out her debut whenever it airs up here in Maryland!

OMG, I would totally check in at that time, but I'm moving in that day!! :( :( I hope you have someone else in SoCal who can watch for you! Congrats!

She looks like she's hovering in some of those!

Awesome photos!

For us in New Jersey, it is:


WPVI (ABC)

* Sun, May 22nd - 5:00pm
* Sun, May 29th - 5:00pm

I tried both northern NJ zip codes and Southern NJ and it's all the same.

I'm working the first day and at a trial the second, but I'll tape it and watch :) That's so very exciting!

I hope one day one of the scouts sees us and we get to go. That would just be incredible.

I can't believe it is not showing in the Charleston, SC area. The closest they have are Florence, SC and Savannah, GA, both of which I do not get channels for. Ugh!! You'll have to tape it and send me a copy:)

Great pictures.

It will be airing on May 22 here (Harrisburg, PA). I'm so dorky I wrote it on my calendar ;)

Great photos. It's interesting to see the 'contortions' Riley's body goes through in weaving!

No doubt we won't be able to see the TV coverage in NZ but it's great that you're going to be on TV for those who can watch it:)

Those are great pictures of Riley in action! The show airs June 12 here, so I wrote myself a note to remember it!

Looks Great! I'll definitely try to catch it!

Can't wait to watch it! The pictures are great. Riley looks so natural in the shots.

My city (Salt Lake, Utah) stinks. I have to drive to Twin Falls, Idaho just to watch! Good thing you are so sweet in posting some videos on your blog! My nephews and I watched a whole slew of them yesterday (training videos included!)

Now I need to figure out how to petition my cable service provider to add the BARK network!

I set my DVR to tape it the first time it plays in my area :)

Can't wait!
