Disc dog state championships
« on: October 27, 2009, 09:13:18 AM »
Hey Guys,

Well, I haven't gotten to do as much DG lately due to doing DD (Disc Doggin) events. Have gotten to do demos at the Royals game, and missed the Olathe Open due to a dog event. But this past weekend was the Show Me State Disc Dog Championships held at Purina farms near St Louis. There were 61 teams there from 7 states! LOTS of competition. There were 4 seperate events and then the overall. Towser did good in the overall in the Pro division, but really good in his best event which is Toss and Catch. (also called distance and accuracy - it is a timed event where you have to throw downfield into points zones and the dog catches it and comes back - it's pretty fast paced). Anyway he won the Toss and Catch and brought the T&C Mo State championship title to KC!

One of the other Disc doggers from here plays some golf as well, so in the future we may have to do an event with the KCFDC and the Kansas City Disc Dogs - make it a plastic flying, slobbering (the dogs, not the golfers.....well OK, maybe some) fun day..... anyway, just wanted to update you from the DD world.

Well done Towser and Jeff.
I'm looking forward to watching your dog do something for the club. I like the idea.
I bet momma is very proud too.

You may want to watch Otter around your dog!!   :D

Way to go Team Towser! My pup Hero has the identical mask as Towser! Hero loves to play catch, and needs lessons from Mr. Towser here!!

Thanks guys! It is a fun and addicting time with your hound! You should come out and throw to your pup with us all when we have a get together CD - - - but you have to throw left handed..... oh wait, you are good at that way too...hmmm.... - OK, you can come out anyway  :D
