Murphy's first tournament where he earned his first title. We ran with a very cute and slow Corgi...it was a lot of fun.

One short one of a run at his second tournament. Now all we need to do it keep him from getting distracted and bring his 4-feet box turn back.

Look at him go! Poor kid can't figure out if he wants one stride or two in between jumps, LOL . And that corgi is too freakin' cute!

That's awesome! And it could be worse, Renee has a pretty four-footed turn in practice and barely gets two feet on the box in a tournament. Murphy's at least getting three feet on. I still can't wait to see him in real life. You and Erin need to come to Alabama in December. :wink:

That was great! Murphy has a long stride!

Does it matter that the smaller dogs have to actually jump up over the obstacle while the bigger ones just sort of glide? :| Seems unfair for the smaller ones because they have to do more work.

The small dogs are called "height dogs"...they bring the jump heights down for the entire team. The goal is to have a good height dog that can single or double stride between the jumps...that way they're faster, thus the whole team is faster. For this team, we were just happy to have any height dog, so we were fine with the corgi who was REALLY slow.

It's part of flyball that the height dogs have to do more work...but on the other hand, they're put on a pedestal and are universally loved by the team...as they make it easier for those of us with big dogs (if we didn't have a height dog, our big dogs would have to run 14" instead of 7-8") We :heartbeat: our height dogs.
