You've waited long enough. I finally got some video edited and some pictures downloaded. First the pictures, then the video. And yes, I know there is a Border Collie in there. That's Brian's BC Rocket. He took a lot of these pictures and kept me company on the trip, so I figured it only fair to include him in the slideshow.

This weekend was a blast. Lots of drving, but well worth it. Brian, a fellow MN Discdogger, and his border collie Rocket joined me for the trip to Milford, OH. All of us bully folk know that Ohio has not been the best place to be if you're a Pit Bull, but fortunately state BSL was overturned a little while back. That's why it felt so cool to roll into Ohio and compete just outside of Cincinnati, which unfortunately still is not a good place to be if you're a Pit. The best part is that Wallace was not the only Pit Bull representing at the competition. The Bullies rocked the place and Wallace took 1st Place in Super Open Freestyle, qualifying for the USDDN National Finals. Wallace also qualified in Super Pro Toss and Catch, and won the Overall Weekend Award and a year's supply of Total Performance Dog Food. Thanks to the Southern Ohio Flying K9's for an amazing weekend of great times!
With the accomplishments from the weekend, Wallace has throughout his career qualified in every organization that holds qualifying events for a larger final event. This includes - AWI World Championships, UFO World Finals, Purina Incredible Dog Challenge National Finals, Skyhoundz World Finals (Pairs Freestyle; Individual Freestyle; and Distance/Accuracy), and now the USDDN National Finals (Freestyle; and Toss and Catch). Wallace Rocks!
I'm in the middle of editing video and waiting for some pictures to post, so stay tuned for pics and vid of Wallace and his friends Thelma and Belle at the Ohio Cup!
M-Gal took me to the Rochesterfest K9 Karnival last weekend. I had sooooooo much fun, and was my typical charming self of course. They had Daschund races, but I was much more content sitting at the Chesney's Choices homemade treat booth demonstrating how yummy her treats are. I also made sure the booth always looked spotless by cleaning up all the crumbs left by the other dogs that were messier eaters. I'm such a good little worker dog. I guess the word is getting out about me cuz people heard and knew that I was there before I even met them.
In between my duties at the treat table, M-Gal let me make the rounds to meet new people and make some new doggie friends. There were 2 little foofy pomeranians that we came across. Their person said that the one might snark at me, but I'm the Hector Man! All the ladies love me! Well......all but this little pomeranian I guess. I just couldn't get her to like me. What's the deal with that?!? She kept trying to tell me off, but I just stood there wondering what the big deal was, and what it was in this perfect package that she was finding fault in. Their person said that they were Pit Bulls in little fluffy bodies. M-Gal said - "Well my dog IS a Pit Bull, and he's not acting like that." Ha Ha....good one M-Gal!
