K9 Kompany christmas party 2008

Yesterday we attended the end-of-year party at K9 Kompany in Lilydale. It was great fun.
Penny was awarded second prize for doing tricks - weaving around my legs in a figure of eight.





We didn't enter the dress-up competition, because Penny shakes off any 'human' items if we try to put them on her.

The winners looked good, though!



I had great hopes for the 'Gambler's Agility' - in this game you race around the agility course, scoring points of different value, depending which activity you choose. The score goes back to zero if you choose an activity that the dog refuses - that's the gamble. Penny, as usual, did everything that was asked of her, so we should have done well - except that she did the weave poles in slow motion. Really s-l-o-w motion. Oh well, at least we gave the onlookers a good laugh.



We both had a great time. Here we are, laughing together.

Sounded like a fun event! Penny, most dogs always win because they go slow & do everything right & not miss any obstacles. It's true! So it's always best to go slow & steady but not tooooo slow ofcourse. Hehehe! Congrats on your win!

Looks like it was a super fun party! Congrats on second! Every once in a while Gracie does the weaves kinda slow - still can't figure out why most days are very speedy and then comes along a slow day :)

Matt, thanks for that. I thought the photos told the story.
