Great pics.

I have some friends who do this with their labradoodle. I've always wanted to try it with my dog but I don't think my vizsla could stand up to the cold for long enough. Also he's incredibly strong for his size but at just under 50 pounds I don't think he'd have enough weight to put into the pull.

Nice shots. Looks like fun, but I'd be afraid of where I'd end up with my malamute pulling!

I have a blast doing it with my lab, but I'd love to be able to tie into a malamute or any other instinctive puller. It would be a blast.

Nice work. I think I met you Canon Guy, I was out there too and gave you a card. Unfortunately, I seem to be working through a back focus issue with my D7000 and didn't get too many keepers because of it. I do have some podium shots if they are needed.

I bet it is a blast doing it with your dog!

While it would have been a pleasure to meet you, it had to have been someone else that you gave your card to. It was ejoyable to watch the race and to see all the different breeds being used.

I left soon after the winner crossed the finish line so I did not see the awards ceremony.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
