Let me start at the beginning. Remember Dream? Her owner (Barb) is a friend of the woman in the photograph above.
Barb sent this photo to Tina (Christina's World), who forwarded it to me.
This took place in Virginia. The "team" has 6 hours to travel 25 miles through fields and woods...they did it in 4 hours and 40 minutes. The two dogs (Baxter and Rima) came in 1st and 2nd as the Best Conditioned dogs in the competition.
Think of how well behaved they must be, to have participated in this kind of an event. Pretty neat!
I can just see Phoebe and Gucci now!
