It's a funny old game !

Flyball in the wet at Wimbledon ... our "rain pod"

The rest of the team caught queuing for Jamaican Chicken, Rice and Pea's !,

Okay... I know I have not posted how well we did in our first competition at the beginning of May...

Scroll down and read my famous last words "We should at least get 3rd"... well, we ended up 5th ! ... it was a total disaster !:

The fastest we could run was a 23.21...

Soxon Runners - we lost to them
Hampshire Hopes - we lost to them
Bassett Allsorts - We Won!
Malmesbury Monks - We Won! (23.21)
Shooting Star Rebels - we lost to them

Fast forward to today... in the rain at Wimbledon:

Race card:

Division 5

Four In The Fast Lane 21.18
FourPaws Flying 21.20
Ramsden Rollers 21.24
Pounding Herts 21.50
Hampshire Hounds 21.64
Rooky Racers 21.70

Still got our 21.70 time... but at least the pressure is off as we are expected to come last...and we did ! lol...

But not because we were too slow ... we were TOO FAST !.

Rules state if you are over half a second quicker than your declared time more than twice in a day you do not score any wins (stops cheating going on)... and we could not slow our dogs down for love nor money :-)

Still .. we now have an official seed time of 20.77 as a result.. means we will be in Division 4 next time !... who would have thought it !.

Lets just hope it's not hot in our next races ... we go much better in the cold !
