The K9 Unit had a blast competing at KCRO's UFLI 'Hop into Spring 2' Tournament in Winchester, ON April 21/22 2018. The beautiful, sunny weather returned just in time to have a gorgeous weekend of racing!!
Our 'Variety' team of Ninja, Brenna, Limit and Viva raced almost undefeated all weekend and placed 1st!! Big shout-out to Zeppelin who was called in twice to back up Limit and Viva. He raced flawlessly in start after never competing in team, and only ever racing in singles 3yrs ago!!! Amazing job!!! Another highlight was Brenna racing a new personal best of 4.708!! She managed to beat her own record for fastest Border Terrier!!
Our 'Regular 1' team was originally comprised of Crank/Zuma, Kirra, Trigger & Trend, but had a bit of a shake-up after Trend came up lame on Saturday after a warm-up. The team re-grouped and competed with Crank, Kirra, Trigger, Zuma and raced very well all weekend!! Zuma ran her first tournament in a full-time spot and rocked it!! Thanks to Josh and Mel for bringing your awesome Border Collie Kirra to compete with us for the weekend!!
Our 'Regular 3' team had multiple lineup changes during the weekend to accomodate younger and older dogs. Felon, Wonder, Bonus, Abby, Lego and Graffiti all raced over the weekend and had a great time!! Wonder made her debut and did an amazing job racing in start part-time with a personal best of 3.89!! She is one speedy little dog!! Abby ran in singles and is now UFLI's fastest Boston Terrier with a time of 4.423 and she's just getting started!!
Two of our younger dogs - Venture and Riddick - were able to get some valuable training time in the racing ring during pre-flights. Can't wait to see these two racing!!
Our next race is 'Paws on Fire' NAFA Tournament in Richmond, ON May 5/6 where our Ottawa contingent will have 2 lineups!!
