I hope you are doing great!!
I wanted to let
you know that last Saturday Oct 17 Alexis and I did the Iron Dog Competition. It is the one we did last year where Alexis
won the fastest dog in the 100 yard run.
Well, this year she
was not the fastest in the 60 yard run but we did win the Iron Dog 1.5 mile course for my age group. We did the course in
17 mins and 50 seconds. Alexis was a super star.She did everything she was suppose to,even the jumps she did not do
last year. :-) She just loves doing this. As we were waiting our turn to go she keep whining and wanting to go. People
would want to say hi to her and she wanted nothing to do with them. She just wanted to go. After we finished she was so
happy and anyone could come up and say hi. She was so happy to everyone. We actually beat all of the civilian
woman teams. I think there were a total of 6.
Attached are some
Here is a description of the course.
13th Annual Iron Dog Competition, which
required handlers and their dogs to navigate a roughly 1 1/2 mile course full of obstacles, crawls, hurdles and challenges
requiring both animal and human to show their athletic ability.
The event is held annually at the Working Dog
Foundation's training grounds at the Pease Air National Guard Base in Portsmouth.
The event challenges law enforcement
K-9 teams and amateur pet owners to a day of fast-paced racing on a course designed to test how well humans can interact
with their animals. This year's course required handlers and dogs to "low-crawl" under barriers, jump hurdles,
find empty shotgun shells and hit targets with tennis balls. One portion of the course required the handlers to do push-ups
and sit-ups while the dogs obediently sat and waited.
Teams were sent out in staggered pairs, and the dogs were
all required to be on leashes, so Saturday's event saw a lot of handlers appearing to be dragged through the course by their
enthusiastic four-legged sidekicks.
Alexis and I did the course in 17 minutes and 50 seconds. We won a trophy
and medal for finishing first in my age group.
