    The Sweet Boy totally thinks plastic discs are cooler than the rubber West Paw one I have. I bought some super cheap $.99 Petsmart ones yesterday, just to have a few extra, now he ignores the West Paw one. So, that said, where do you guys buy your discs from? Now that I ask this question, I feel like it's been answered before...

    I think I've answered this a few times in this thread. It would be easiest just to read past posts!

    We love our jaws frisbee, it was a gift from a disc dog friend (Sloan aunt), and it's amazingly hardy. However, I'm just along for the ride in this thread, Sloan is too accident prone and Backup is too dorky for this sport. lol

    You and Zinga look AMAZING Sara!!! I love her flips, the head over heels is just awesome. I need to send Didgie to you so she can be with someone who can actually throw.

    But seriously, you guys are just great and so inspiring to watch.

    Jawz are really nice, one of the hardiest discs out there! One of the most expensive too, for that reason.

    SaraB and I met up this weekend for a little disc doggin. Also had fun with the camera! I'll let Sara post her photos, so here are a few of me and Dex and my new foster Katie (who just started learning disc this weekend!)

    Sooo muddy though! I'll be happy when it dries up out there.

    First off, here are a couple new tricks Zinga and I are working on with hopes of incorporating them into our freestyle routine. The first is Japanese Dog Catch (without the last spin as we are still working on it) and the second is a chest rebound through a hoop.

    Here are the pics Dex's boyfriend took for us!

    I don't know how you guys are doing all these vaults! I did leg vaults with Art yesterday and now my thigh is all scratched and bruised from his nails! >_< Art is only 13lbs! You guys and your 20-30lb dogs must be crazy! lol :rofl1:

    I'm not sure if i'll be there Friday thru sunday or just sat or sunday. I'll let you know ahead of time though. I have a few thousand pictures worth of memory card space just waiting to be filled

    Haha!! Well I still end up scratched and bruised so don't worry, it happens! Especially on my lower back with straight on back vaults... Dex likes to launch right where my shirt ends and pants begin which leaves really nice deep scratches on bare skin. She goes very hard on vaults.

    Alternatively, I have played with dogs that are feather light vaulters (Dex's twin in the disc club is like that). I wasn't even sure he touched me the first time I vaulted him!

    It freaking hurts. I'm still nursing bruises and scratches from Sunday. Vaulting vests do help with the chest and back vaults though. I swear I'm going to invent a thigh wrap or something for leg vaults.
