The Olympics 2016 will be held as usual Sunday Morning until Lunch. There are a few changes this year in events that we think will bring a lot of fun to all. We encourage all dogs to enter, let’s have fun, no matter the breed, ability or age. Go for it!!! Remember It’s all about having fun and raising money for rescue.
THE SASSY WALK Dress your dog in an amazing costume or just a fun bandana as we judge from behind. That’s the walking view. The Sassy Walk will also be the only event this year that accepts bribes. Yes, your dog can gain “Style” points with Benjamins, Lincolns, and even Franklins attached to their collar.
CIRCLE THE WAGONS Dogs and handlers face each other in a circle. You put your dog in a sit and stay and the winners are the last three dogs sitting. There will be gradual distractions as the game continues so start practicing that sit stay. No bribes will be accepted this year. It’s true skill of obedience. Let the best dog win, and the best dog be out first. There will be a puppy class in this event that should be very fun to watch!
THE RIGHTEOUS RETRIEVER After all that’s what goldens do, they run and retrieve. Axl and Rocky want you to know that Cows retrieve too; well at least they steal and run. You will need two humans to play this game so recruit a friend or we will find one for you no worries.
FASTEST SWIMMER where we will have three classes. Puppies, Seniors, and Open. It’s a fast race for the tennis ball. The dog must bring the ball back to the handler. Balls cannot be dropped in the water and the handler go get it. If the ball is dropped it is free game for another dog.
DOCK DIVING This should be fun to watch this year as we have some real flyers and some very good floppers. All are welcome. The judges might come up with some special awards in this area for style of dive, but it’s going to be a game of skill this year as no bribes for extra inches allowed. This is a true competition of fun.
Let the GAMES begin. Entries remain the same $7.00 per event, $30.00 for all five events. Sign up at breakfast Saturday and last minute on Sunday. Remember It’s all about having fun and raising money for rescue.
