Yikes is fast… like crazy-fast. He comes from a line of award-winning fast border collies and it shows. I wanted to take some photos of him that capture his speed and character! He looks a little crazy running, but that’s part of his charm!
Dogs who practice in different dog sports (Agility, Flyable, Disc) are exceptional to photograph; the determination and drive that is apparent in their expression and sheer will to keep going and doing is amazing. It was reaching 30˚ out today and Yikes would have kept going and going!
We started with some running photos first, and boy is he FAST.
We took a little break in the shade after all that running to cool down.
Then we started to do some disc work.
By now you probably think Yikes is a crazy superstar, so to keep his ego down I thought I should show you at least a couple misses 😉
After what seemed like a million perfect throws we spent some time lounging in the shade, enjoying a nice sunny summer day. Yikes was perfectly happy to roll around with his frisbees, well, when he wasn’t licking my face- of course!
So what do you think? Crazy, athletic, goof? Yeah, that’s what I think too!
Do you practice any sports with your dogs? I’d love to hear about it!
