Flyball


Thanks to Angie and Lee for letting us use your flyball box and jumps for the demo


We didn't have room in our van to bring one so we had to get creative
on how to keep it overnight and transport it


The angle of the box front worked well as a pillow too

 

Puppies!


This is Excess - one of the 2 puppies at the event


I was very happy to get a puppy fix

 

Pavilion


One of the pavilions had shirts and other things for sale as well as a raffle
