Cynosport Blog #3 – Steeplechase, Grand Prix & Challenge Biathlon
I’m really loving the courses this year. Some great challenges & they are fast fast fast! The dogs are running great. Slyce has been on fire. Her times are great & she is remaining very sound & hardly stiff at all! Funkee is sooooooo happy!!! Which is great because if I’m feeling the pressure of a big competition, she of all my dogs is affected the most. Grand Slam is blowing me away. Our team work has been in check & I’m actually feeling like we can start to open up more on course. SOOOO exciting.
Steeplechase Semi Finals (Both Slyce & Funkee had byes in to this event)
Funkee – 1st place & Slyce (fastest time but I… yes ME… ran up the A-Frame :(…..did a flying FC & landed in front of the frame) On to finals to Funkee 🙂

Grand Prix Finals:
Both Slyce & Grand Slam had fly off’s on the teeter. But I wasn’t alone – over 50% of the dogs that did the course flew off the teeter. We finally determined that the light from the doors at the top of the coliseum was creating a huge blind spot at the top of the teeter board. The board disappeared!!! Too bad, both dog had great times cooking.
