Doggie Olympics

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 11 September 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I am at the Doggie Olympics! You can see a coaching of sorts as the dog leaps over a set of hurdles in a time trial.

The event was at the RSPCA - our community based charity that promotes the care and well-being of animals.

A worthy fund raiser and great way to involve pets and people. It was hard to predict how each dog would run its race; and my improvised point of view qualifies well
for Silly Tuesday. Happy ST!

I totally wish I could go to the doggie olympics!! I had a dog who would have medalled in rapid fire kibble catching for sure! This is a great pov... I am kind of curious how close you were to the owner of the hands :-)

@Mooie: Thanks, Mooie. Yes, it was a lot of fun. I was a little too close to the dog owner - as you can see - shooting between his legs!

Are you the finishing line? If not it's time to move :)

11 Sep 2012 9:21am

@grouser: Yes - the dog owner was the finish line - so for me it was a case of shoot and run!

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

It reminds me of a movie ... I do not remember his name! and a dog of this breed ... ran madly this way!
