I know blog posts are supposed to be timely and such, but does it count if it ‘feels’ like I took these pictures yesterday???
I recently took pictures at a lure coursing trial and it was the first trial held in Oregon that offered the new Coursing Ability Test through AKC. This event opens the world of lure coursing to all breeds of dogs instead of just sighthounds. I am so glad AKC decided to do this because it was so much fun watching these dogs chase the plastic bunny.
Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
and a very funny Bull Mastiff
She thought grabbing the cone at the end would be fun 🙂
Even the little dogs came out to play…
a tiny Chihuahua with a HUGE personality
This Doxie was my favorite 🙂
As always there were lots of sighthounds and they continue to take my breath when I watch them run!
Pharaoh…almost catching the bunny
All of the photos from the weekend can be seen on my That’ll Do Photography website.
We went to the dog show that’s in town over the weekend to meet a couple people and catch up with others that I haven’t seen in a long time. We had a great time! This was the first ‘true’ dog show that I have taken Theron to. He has been to lure coursing, agility, and herding and he wanted to know what type of racing or jumping the dogs were going to do 😉 He had fun looking at all the different breeds of dogs and wanted to know what each one was. He made a lot of new friends.
This adorable Cardigan puppy is Rio. Theron was very popular with his baggy full of cheese crackers 🙂
This is JR, a super outgoing Papillon that was getting ready for the Junior’s ring.
I have always liked Clumber Spaniels and
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
This girl is a Husky named Rose. The two of them hit it off immediately and were wrestling in the aisleway.
Such a pretty girl with beautiful blue eyes.
These pretty girls are Rhodesian Ridgebacks – Zuri and Roxy. He really liked the ridges on their backs.
Caitlynn is an old friend that he hasn’t seen in awhile. She is such a sweetie.
We got new leashes for all of the dogs and Theron picked out a new toy for Darby. They played fetch for a long time when we got home. Happy boys!
