  1. No worries Dennis! Clearly flyball should only be played under the big open skies and bright sun. Zoe would have totally boycotted the artificial surrounds of a large metal roof too 😉


  2. Oh, poor Dennis. Chase watched the video and I explained why you weren’t in it. He completely understands. The first time he went to a dog show in a giant arena where the sounds bounced off the walls and huge trash cans traveled around the rings, he froze also. Then, just when he thought things were settling down, a bulldog fell off the ramp in the next ring. All that noise with no identifiable source makes it too hard to concentrate on your job.


  3. Ciao Dennis!

    Listen, mio caro amico, just showing up counts hooooogely, so that makes you a winner in my book. I’d gladly snarf down a hamburger (or maybe 15!) of celebration in your honor except that mia stupida ragazza only gives me kibble.

    Tanti baci!


  4. Dennny, Woohoo! You know, the television is always telling us about these magic pills that you can take for performance anxiety .. but they always say something about contacting a doctor if the side effects last longer than 6 hours. Not sure what that’s all about, but you might want to check into it. Your friend, Cosmo


  5. Aww poor Dennis, I thinks I would have been scared of all the echo’s too! They would sound like scary evps and stuffs!
    You were a winner in my eyes buddie 🙂


  6. Well Dennis, you are a winner anyway. You probably got the most hamburgers! Loud noises are very scary, I am not to fond of them myself!


  7. Hi, Dennis!
    I am sure next time you will do it much better.
    I got tired just watching those doggies in the video!
    Enjoy your toy!
    Kisses and hugs


  8. Roadies!


    Were there any groupies?

    BTW, that flyball thing is yet another item not on THIS Siberian’s list of ‘things’ she’ll do!



  9. Dear Dennis the Vizsla Dog, you are a hero coz not many dogs of intelligence and sensitivity would want to race in a horrid, noisy, echoing place! Shitznengroobinz, erm, schnitsen, erm, them schitemsumfinks, wot iz them? I mean, wot ar them, I mean, what are they? Are they like chicken Kiev? Or hot dogs, erm, sausages in bread rolls? With onions and stuff?

    I’m glad you found the awardie I gave you coz that’s saved me from having to visit to tell you about it… Harharhar! Luvzya 🙂 xxx


  10. Hai Dennis, its ok to git distracted, I do dat all da time. Like tonight, when I was s’pose to bring dad my toy to toss, I kept pushing it at mom and she was not even in da same room as dad. Oh well, we dawgs know wat we like dats all dat counts! But really dat looks fun to do – run run run run run run run run play play play play play ….

  11. That all looked rather frightening to me too. ALl that screeching and yelling and dogs barking, NO THANKS! I don’t blame you for a second, I hope you still got your grub though.


  12. Dennis, just don’t think about your lack of performance next time.

    The worst thing you can do is keep saying to yourself

    “I couldn’t perform last time, I wonder if I can Today”.

    Absolutely don’t keep repeating that to yourself and you will be okay 😉


  13. Never mind Dennis, we alls get stage fright sometimes!! Most importantly did yoos get your 6 hamburgers?? YUM! xx


  14. Aww It’s OK There will be another day. I have days like that myself, had one just the other day. I just froze right up. And other days it’s like were born to run.;+).


  15. Those commercials don’t realte to you Dennis. Just humans. 😉
    Don’t be worried about not being able to perform this time. I’m sure you will get it.


  16. Dont worry Dennis it happens to everybuddy. Well it never happened to me but thats cause I never getted to go to competishuns in fakt I never made it past my first ajilitee class cause I kept straytening out them curved tunnels. I mean why did they want them tunnels all curvy in the first place? So when I runned thru them I jest pushed them out strayte and Mummy finally sed oh Dozer this jest is not wut you wuz ment fer doing. I does not know wut she ment cause I wuz the very best tunnel straytener in the whole class.

    Anyways the point is that Old Lady Dawg did do fine in ajilitee and left them tunnels curvy so she did go to competishuns and she did not like the competishuns at all. So even tho Mummy wanted her to jump and run and go thru them tunnels and whatnot Old Lady Dawg jest runned to the end of the corse where me and Daddy wuz waiting fer her. Even when we hid frum her she would run off the corse and try to find us. I thinks you are doing much better than Old Lady Dawg cause at least you did not run aways!

    Yer pal Dozer


  17. Dennis, mate, I had a similar experience when momma tried to make me a show doggie. I did great at practice but then when I got to the show it was in a big scary building and I refused to go in.

    I get tired just watching the flyball, but Momma is all thinking yet another “fun” thing for Pee-Wee.

    I hope your performance did not effect access to all those grilled foodables.
