Discover Dogs November 2008


I suddenly realised I hadn't posted about Discover Dogs. Well as usual it was held at Earls Court up in London. I have been invited up there for the past 5 years. They have invitation events on both days but I only go for one day. They mainly ask the dogs that have qualified for Olympia, but usually 2 or 3 people can't make it especially if they have to travel a long distance ( especially as its only 2 runs) which is why I have always been asked as I live so near to the venue. I have actually got there in my own right with Disney the previous 2 years( but unfortunately not this year)and because of this they ask me to bring Woody along as well to be reserve for the ABC event. I never enter my dogs in the normal ABC events because they are after all part Collie, but as this is an invitation & Woody looks nothing like a collie they have said it doesn't matter.
Well in previous years I have never even had a clear round up there. Both dogs love the crowd and play to them and therefore make mistakes(usually the contacts) Well this year typically Disney did make mistakes & for some reason missed his weave entry both times,this is very unusual for him !!
But Mr Woody was star and came 2nd in the morning event and won the afternoon event. I felt really bad about this and even asked Dave Ray to give my prize & placing to Ray who came second. Dave was adamant that I should keep the win & be proud of Woody, and as he said everyone there had been invited as well. I still feel a bit bad though.
Anyway here is a video of their rounds
