    Figured I'd split the photos into two threads by theme!

    Snip had lure coursing set up in the back field for the funday, and not only did the cockers and whippets run it, but Sierra and Finnegan, sport noobs, took a stab. Not like it's difficult, chasing a lure around a field... but they both took to it more than we thought they would!

    Pics!

    Sierra's first go!

    Finn and Sierra (and Nilla and I) watching and waiting our turn.

    "Mums can we go yet?"
    [​IMG]

    Finn starts!

    I don't own a herding dog. Nope. Dunno what you're talking about. What is flanking? I have never heard that term before.

    Snip stopped the lure, but oh Finn, just didn't want to sit still.

    So he got to go again!

    Finn was rather ecstatic about watching the other dogs course.

    As was Mr. Smudge.

    The beautiful Dobe even had a turn!

    Chaz dogs lined up: Cider and Smudge, Sierra, and Finn.

    We very much did! Thanks for helping us out along the way. :D I'm such a noob to dog sports of any kind. It's nice to get some advice that'll be helpful in the future!

    Finn is still extremely tired today, BTW. Haha.
