Somebody is definitely interested in what's going on back there. Once around the park. Double Time! Maybe twice around the park. Harry having a sniff The Whole Gang! Tonka doesn't get it that the tunnel just won't hold his big butt! Hunter striking a pose I prefer to sit under the shade canopy.

Stacy doing a couple of trial runs with her little star! Can you say Ringer? Careful, Careful... Rosie showing off on the agility course Um... Rosie, You're supposed to be going the other way. Gary Thompson getting in close on Rosie Huh? Coming & Going This just cracks me up! Not sure who's doing the agility and who's following, but it sure is cute! Dog Walk, Tunnel...Player's choice! The Nut was about the only dog who knew what to do with the pool. The Nut was about the only dog who knew what to do with the pool. I love a massage in the sun! Whatcha Lookin' For?

What a great name for a Great Dog! The Nut! What a great name for a Great Dog! This little guy was literally having a ball! This little guy was literally having a ball! Snack Time! I've got my eye on you. 
Some of these little rescue dogs have had rotten lives until they find the one family that takes them away from it all. The Rat Terrier Jamboree and the New Rattitude have saved many dogs, including mine, Micky (not pictured). The Nut! What a great name for a Great Dog! I think I over Jammed today... Apparently, this crew has figured out where the good snacks are. Okay, this will work. A quick nap and I'm back at it! Gary & Boozer Stella hears the good news. She's been selected as Queen of the Jam! Stella hears the good news. She's been selected as Queen of the Jam! Stella hears the good news. She's been selected as Queen of the Jam!

Gimme the ball! Seriously, gimme the ball! Darby making the rounds Gary & Lucy getting ready for the races Hey Chief, You're Going The Wrong Way! Somehow this seems like stacking deck Jaime. Especially, when you "forget" to let The Nut go. Nut Checking Out The Competition! The Nut crosses the finish line first. If you look in the upper right, you'll see it wasn't close! Honestly, this one is so much like the last one, but I had to include the look on Stacy's face. And We're Off To The Races! And We're Off To The Races! And We're Off To The Races! I Am So Winning This Race... And then I'm going to eat the competition! Tonka Is Just About To Get Serious! Racing Is What He Does! This is the kind of day every dog should have! I've been trying to figure out which photo is my favorite, but there are just too many to choose from. This one of Tonka is a good representation of all the ones I love. It shows a happy dog doing something he really loves to do. Little Darby. He's old and cranky, but he's earned the right!
He could care less the races are going on right now. He can't hear em, can't see em, and dares any dog to run into him! I think Debbie is the one excited here. I'm bummed this one is slightly out of focus. Little Toby was so happy! That's right! I won! Too Cool for Dog School! Uh oh. Scary lady waitin' on me. I'm coming... I'm coming... Man, that's' a long way! We have a "Fail to Start" in the center lane. Apparently, leaving Denise is a scary prospect. Please don't make me run this Denise... I'm winning, I'm winning, I'm winning! Yay Me! Go Gracie Go!
Here she comes! These races are serious business. Defeat is a hard pill to swallow. Or is Denise still laughing? Go! Be Free! Team Collins brings in another win. I'm sorry... I just can't do it. I tried. Really, I tried, but I can't! I thought Stacy liked me. Geez! Now I'm stuck in this scary gauntlet and everyone is yelling for some reason. Look at me go! Screw It! I'm outta here! And We're Off To The Races! O'Reilly is in the chute! If you're not trying as hard as Stacy, you're just playing for second!
This is what a proud dog momma looks like! I'm coming! I'm coming!
Whew! That's a long way... Dana collecting her haul from the raffle Amos! Max: "Uh oh, it's the Restorff gang... Play it cool Max. Just keep moving and don't make eye contact."
Satch: "Is that a dog?" Hey Satch! This is definitely a dog. The perfect kit! Hey, what'd we win this time? Hear I am, showing Stella how to politely wait for a treat. This is not how you wait politely. Somebody stepped on Stella's toes. Big Meanie! This agility stuff is fun! Check out my form! Stick the landing... I am made for Jumping! Ooh! This guy has snacks too! What? So I Have Big Ears... I'm Cute!
