I've been sick the past few days, but have had a chance to watch the CanAm racing happening this week in Indianapolis, Indiana. For those not in the know, CanAm is basically a HUGE flyball tournament put on by NAFA at the end of the racing year. I've never been, but have watched the live stream for the past two years.
You can still catch some of the live stream, including the Classics Finals, at http://www.livestream.com/danphillips.
I have to say, though, watching CanAm makes me want to do things I should. Like, spend a bunch of money to travel to Indiana to run flyball. Or get a new puppy. Or spend a bunch of money on training seminars or videos to help "fix" Koira.
I don't get to have a puppy yet. Two dogs is my limit, so unless I move, it will be quite a few years before I can have another dog. But watching CanAm makes me want a brand new, untrained, blank slate of a dog who can be trained up to be an amazing, super fast flyball dog. Seriously, some of these dogs are running times as fast as 3.5 seconds! Its scary fast. And makes me really want a border staffy, or border jack, or any of these other dog breeds I know I don't want to live with long term, but who are rocking the flyball lanes right now.
