Dinas 1-2 Final 2007

This was our second final in one week,

and this time we made a much better effort, and went for it.

unfortunately my poor contacts let us down again,

but I'm told we posted the second fastest time.

This run I was much happier with my own efforts!!

Tig was brilliant as usual.

Kc Festival Starters Cup Final 2007

This was our first final, & my nerves got the better of me,

I went for safety and I didn't push,

Tig much prefers it when I push.

I was very proud of him for getting there.

Newlands 2007

Sunday at Newlands, I'd screwed up the agility,
then we ran this so it ended up not a complete wash out,
as usual Tig was a good lad and enjoyed himself.
Wasn't he a pretty little pup?

Our Friends Lou & Shadi at Bretons


Later on that day Lou had a lovely clear round with Shadi in the 1 to 5 jumping, shame we didn't get that on film!!

Tigsta at Bretons

Here's Tig's run in 1 to 5 jumping, where he got a 14th place, and was the only grade 2 dog in the placings, all the others were 3,4,5's. I was well pleased with him.

Axstane 2007

Axstane was a story of two halves, Saturday in a word was rubbish, Sunday was a bit more like it, a good run in our Grade 1 & 2 Jumping produced a 3rd place and Tig's sixth trophy, not to shabby for his first season so far! in our Grade 1 & 2 Agility we were pipped by one place for another trophy! In our grade 1 to 3 Agility I put the brakes on too hard at a cross behind and pulled Tig off a jump but the rest of it went quite well. Thanks to N & A for the videos.

Early Sunday Morning Stroll
















Got up early today, bit of a headache from the footy celebrations, anyway I took the dogs out at 6.30am on the river walk, I love it that early when there's no-one else around, the dog's had a great time, & Jess had her usual swim. took a few pictures while out ,they were with my old camera so only 1.3 mega pixel, but it's easier to carry around than my SLR.

Tig's latest results

Tig's Shuttleworth Spoils
Nice Pic Shame about the Pole

Tig Won out of grade 1 at the Spring at Shuttleworth show in April, he won Grade 1 Agility & the same day he came 3rd in Grade 1 jumping, since then he has collected three more trophies for 3rd places
he now has six top five, three top ten, and two top fifteen places.
You could say I'm mildly pleased with him, and he now gets to sleep in the shed.......... only kidding!

about us








Molly in her favorite place







We are Dan & Mac, and we have three dogs, well two & a half really, Jess 4yrs a working sheepdog Tri-colour, Molly 6yrs a rescue scruff from Greece, & Tig a Border Collie 2yrs, Molly was badly treated, But she's made up for that now, & she lives the life of luxury, lazy little thing, The Collies use her as a rag toy at times but ultimately she rules the roost.


Jess & Tig Do agility, Molly tried it but found it far too strenuous, and prefers sleeping, if they had competitions for that discipline she'd be in grade 7.


Mac and Jess have been doing agility since Jess was 18mths old, and are now in the new grade 5
and are finding their feet together, before hopefully pushing for some higher places,


Jess & Her Beloved Rugby Ball
















will add some more soon...................
