2nd Annual Texas Agility Shootout

Post by Lisa »

Last weekend, Buster, Charm and I attended the 2nd annual Texas Agiliy Shootout, which is a fund raiser for canine cancer research. It's a non-sactioned event that has classes from CPE, USDAA, NADAC, ASCA, and AKC. There are volunteer judges, a huge raffle, and tons of dogs and handlers having fun. On Saturday, we had CPE Jumpers, AKC Standard, NADAC Tunnelers, and ASCA Gamblers. On Sunday, we had CPE Jumpers, AKC Standard, NADAC Tunnelers, and USDAA Snooker. The event raised over $42,000 for canine cancer research, and there were 266 handlers, 382 dogs, and a total of 1975 runs over the weekend. The event was absolutely huge!!!

Unfortunately, I only got one of Buster's runs on video. This is his Jumpers run from Saturday.

The show also had a professional photographer taking pictures of the event...here's a few of Buster's photos. Yes, he looks completely demented in this first one as he's approaching the tire. Totally cracks me up!

At first I didn't think it was Buster - he sort of looks like an alien!! :) But the other pictures are pretty good, he's such a handsome devil!!

I honestly wonder what exactly Buster was thinking as he was approaching the tire jump. The expression on his face is just so ODD! I can't stop laughing at the photo!

Lisa it really was an odd expression - but I just love those kind of photos......we have a professional photographer that goes to camp - his name is Steve Surfman.

I hope he gets a weird daisy photo :shock:
