WAG Jumpers Champs

We had a good Saturday at WAG jumpers champs show - three clears from three runs and two 5th placings from fairly decent sized classes.
I was pleased with how she ran, still so much to learn and work on, and I know she can go faster! We had a few big wide and slow turns which cost heaps of time and in the 1st run I was sure we were faulted when I called her too hard from a jump and pulled her off it, but luck and a kind judge were on our side and gave us a clear.

Folly chilling out in her crate, with her new pink flamingo toy. She's a real dude at shows and is so far relaxed and laid back and no trouble - fingers crossed this continues.

Some of the North Shore dogs:







  1. some serious doggie air in those shots! Especially Brodie! Someone needs to tell him the bar is a lot shorter than that ;)

  2. Wow, those are some nice jump shots. :)

  3. Congrats on such a good weekend! I love those action shots of Pepper jumping so high!

  4. Those are some great jumping shots!

    That's good that Folly is nice and calm at show's, we don't think we would be a good as that!

    Licks and lots of slobber,
    Lexi and Jasper the Danes

  5. Wow, doggie steeplechase! Excellent.

    Pepper, did your DWTDS mirror ball ever arrive? It was posted in mid-August and if it didn't, please let mama know as it is insured. At least one of the Malaysian packages arrived already, but a different package we sent to Australia took almost a full month to arrive. Just wondering. Thanks.

  6. Indi is beautiful. Of course not as gorgeous as Pepper. :D Whoever took the pictures did a fantastic job getting great jump shots. You and Pepper did awesome. Congrats on a great show. I'm glad Folly is so laid back so far. :)

  7. Brody does not know how to jump economically or fast..... his speciality is to look pretty whilst jumping :-)

  8. Hi there!
