2012, Day 169 - Surge

Today was Frankie's second official race meet and he was really excited to be there!  When I took him out of the truck he danced around in circles, wanted to play with every dog he saw, and way a general nutcase.  It has been a few weeks since he has had the opportunity to get out and really stretch his legs and I knew he would be thrilled to run.  Unfortunately all he really wanted to do was play so he chased well but had no desire to win.  Oh well, he doesn't have to be good, he just has to have fun!

Pictured below is Frankie's uncle Bados in the four jacket, his uncle Cayman in the three jacket, his second cousin-ish Garis in the two jacket, and barely visible at all Garis' sister Temora in the one jacket.  I like that only Bados is touching the ground as they all surge forward trying to edge the others out of the lead.

  1. I do love your coursing pictures! Such beautiful silkies. I took my little mixed girl coursing for the first time in April and she had the time of her life. We're going again in two weeks and I'm SUPER excited.
