During the weekend of 26 & 27 of May we traveled to Assen.
On Sunday the 27th there was a Dogfrisbee competition hosted by Gesien and het crew.
The location was perfect, lots of green and 2 playing fields, so the 2 disciplines would be played at the same time.
Which speeds up the event.
As it was our first competition of the year, we weren’t have any expectations.
It started off great, the wind was good and we made the correct disc choice. Ended up playing a solid Toss & Fetch run with 4 throws and 4 catches inches away from the bonus zone.
During the noon it was time to play our freestyle routine. It would be our first time playing the new routine after the diagnosis that forced us the adjust our play for Luna her hips.
Even with a lot of nerves we played a quite good run.
In the afternoon we had to do another Toss & Fetch run. At this point it went wrong in any possible way. The throws where quite good but Luna was suffering from the heat that day, resulting in 4 throws and 0 catches. This could ruin the hole day.
Also the 2nd Freestyle run wasn’t as good as the first one, due to even more nerves remaining from the failed 2nd Toss & Fecth run.
Totally unexpected we ended up winning the Toss & Fetch beginners class even with 0 catches in the 2nd run.
And maybe even more unexpected we brought home the 2nd place in the Freestyle beginners class.
