    This weekend we're competing at the National Flyball Championships in Canberra. It's a two day comp with two rings running simultaneously, so it's big! It's at the Royal Canberra Show, so there are horses, cows, sheep, pigs, dog conformation ring, show rides, displays.... Lots to see.

    Here's the Flyball setup:

    Obi's team is the X-Factor X-Tremes. We're competing in Division 5. There are 10 Divisions, each with 3 to 6 teams. Div 1 is the fastest teams, Div 10 the slowest. It's going to be 30 degrees both days so keeping the dogs cool and hydrated will be a priority.

    Both these dogs false started (which you can tell by the negative time on the display).

    Another kind of jumping :)

    The vegetable dioramas are a scream. Here's another:

    I think it's great that, in the year 2015, we are still simple enough to appreciate competitive endeavours involving vegetables.

    Obi did so well today. He tried really hard and didn't make a single error all day. He was so good! And we had a lot of fun :) We didn't win many races but that's ok :)

    Up bright and early tomorrow for Day 2.
