The wait is finally over. Episode 2 is here!
As you all know we launched our first Vlog about a month ago, where we traveled from Texas to Missouri for Bass's surgery. But our trip didn't end there. We left the very cold Missouri weather and headed down to warm Florida.
Our first stop was in Tallahassee FL, where we went to visit our very good friend Travis. We meet Travis back in 2012 while traveling to Panama to do a show with our dogs. We hadn't seen him since then, so a visit was well overdue. Travis is the owner of Jacks B Quicks Resort, and competes in the sport of Jack Russell Racing. So of course we had to try lure coursing with some of the dogs.
After Tallahassee we traveled a bit more south to Spring Hill, FL for a Disc Dog competition. It was a USDDN and AWI Qualifier, meaning that if we placed in the top spots, we would earn a invite to the World Finals (super exciting). This is when we went of the grid in Social Media (sorry!). It goes without saying that we love disc dog, and when we have the rare opportunity to compete and see our disc dog family, well, we have way to much fun and kind of forget about everything else. But we promise to start doing better.
Poison Ivy and Sky did incredible! At the AWI qualifier Sky placed 4th earning her Q and a invitation to the world finals. The next day Poison Ivy copied her big sister (beating her lol) and placed 4th earning her Q and a invitation to the USDDN World Finals! (Super excited proud parents right here!) We said goodbye (for now) to our disc dog friends, left Florida and headed to Georgia.
Our main stop in Georgia was a Disc Dog Seminar, but we had a couple of days to kill so we visited our great friend Brandy. You guessed it Brandy is part of our Disc Dog family. She took us sight seeing and to The World's Biggest Mattress!
Then it was time for the main event!
We had never taken any disc related seminars. But when the stars line up and you have 2 multiple time world champions come all to way from Japan to teach, you jump at the opportunity to learn from them. And so we did! We learned so so much, and we are definitely excited to start applying it in our routines.
Make sure to check the Vlog and give us your feed back. We would love to hear from you!
