Happy Birthday Koira

Koira turned 10 years old today. The weather is freezing cold but clear today. We probably should have taken advantage of the sun shining with a hike, but instead, we snuggled up inside with a flannel comforter and a roaring fire and enjoyed some movies.

Koira FMX, MBDCh

Last weekend, Koira raced in Multibreed with the Portland TailBlazers and earned her Flyball Master Excellent (10,000 points) and Multibreed Dog Champion (500 multibreed points) titles. She is going to mostly retire from flyball at this point, though she may come out to play a time or two over the next year if she is feeling good, and race one more time next year (again, if she is feeling good) to try to earn her Iron Dog.

She was a really good girl, and did her job great. She had a really good time too. I think she would be perfectly happy without the long car rides to and from Canada, though. 

We happened to be getting Christmas photos done by a photographer at the tournament, and she took a picture of Koira with her fancy new FMX ribbon while we were there as well.

Sweaters!

Flyball Christmas Sweater-6931
Ptera's awesome sweater with our flyball club logo on the back- all hand knitted

Flyball Christmas Sweater-6957
But, I totally have a hat AND sweater vest that match! The hat has jack russells and pteranodons on it, and the sweater has Ptera's name on the back.


These were all made by the super awesome mom of one of my flyball teammates. She also made us an awesome Christmas sweater that we are raffling as a fundraiser for our flyball club. (If you are interested, check out our team facebook page for the post about how to enter.)
