Great Night at the Races

Last night we raced right here in Lethbridge. There were only 6 teams competing but we all had such a great time !
HUGE thanks goes to Shauna who was our box loader for the first time.
Jethro & Epic competed for the first time & had clean runs!! Well done Tina & Donna!
Bosley was his typical funny self, taking his time up to the box, sometimes surveying his surroundings, but always getting his right dumbbell then racing back to the finish.
Gyp was her speedy self & was almost always right on, just a couple of tiny bobbles but is a definite asset to our team !!
Swift wowed us by not crossing the line once or barking her way around the box, what a good girl!!
Princess Pixel was her perfect little self & didn't make a mistake all night!
We had lots of funny moments as well.
In one race I made a huge mistake by not remembering where Kort's dumbbell was & told him he was right when he picked up #3, oops! I didn't even look at the number when he brought it back as I am so used to him being right, my bad!!!
The look on my teams faces when they saw me sitting on the floor hanging onto a barking bundle of a tri sheltie for an opposing team, was priceless :)
Tina's boyfriend was super nice to video the races for us, as soon as they are compiled we will post them here!
Congrats to Us! Good Job Team !!!
