Team Photoshoot

My flyball team is growing, and we decided we needed to do a new team photoshoot with all the new dogs and people. Some dogs and people weren't with us last time. Some dogs were with us but weren't doing flyball yet as experienced dogs. So it was time to update our photos.

Ready to run!

I love having some good photos of me and of my dog (together and just of her) running flyball. Getting good photos at tournaments can be hard, because we are concentrating on racing, not on being photogenic. So I love taking some time out at a practice once or twice a year to get some good photos.

In the Background

In the background of the flyball tournament, there is a space where everyone keeps their boxes, ball hoppers, props, and other gear that their team needs for racing or warm ups.


When getting ready for each race, first, you have to find all your gear in this constantly shifting, crowded area where a ton of the boxes look exactly the same except for tiny variables like a piece of tape on top.


I can spot our box in both of the pictures above. Can you?

Here is a photo from the weekend of Addie (getting an awesome start) that shows our box.
