Arrival Story:
Brook was the first foster dog that I decided I couldn't part with. She is an increadible dog that reminded us so much of our little Zyp that we lost to cancer. Life happened, though, and after a divorce, I found that I was just not able to give Brook what she needed. I was working 12hr days and that just wasn't enough frisbee time for her. I knew that I was being selfish in keeping her. Many people wanted Brook. I held out for the perfect home, though, and found it. Brook is now living in Atlanta, GA, and travels the country competing in frisbee events. Her new owner has also introduced her to herding and plans on trying her out with some dock diving, too! Brook is in heaven! She even has her own line of frisbees! Look for her soon on the CNN outdoor games!

Forums Motto:
Throw the frisbee!

Update on Brook

thought that you might like to see what Brook has been up to recently.



We were in Naperville , IL this weekend for one of the UFO Major Series events and as you can see from the picture Brook did pretty well. To say that it was our best outing to date would be an understatement. We had to enter the Intermediate Division because we do not yet do freestyle and ended up scoring more points than anyone in either division. We won the Intermediate division by a margin of 10 points.



It was quite a nice ending to the weekend as we did not do as well on Saturday. For some reason we missed on all three of our throws in the Longshot Competition and were out in the first round however we made up for it on Sunday.



Brook now gets a couple of days to rest and it is off to Hoover , AL on Friday evening for the Alabama State Championships on Saturday. Hopefully we can do as well there. Needless to say that we are having a great time and she loves traveling. She especially loves the fact that she gets dad all to her self all day, every day while we are on the road. She has decided that sleeping on the bed next to dad is pretty fun as most of the beds in hotels are big and there are no other dogs to bother her. Ha.



She still wants her generator and fans though……..

 

Brook's Update

Rebecca,

I just thought that I would give you a quick update on Brook’s adventures.

Despite the fact that we struggled (mostly me) in the second round of throw and catch in Indianapolis, we still managed a top ten finish. The field for the IDDHA World Championships was especially strong so I guess 10th is not too bad. I was a bit disappointed as we were in 4th after the first round so we slipped a bit in the second round due to some difficult conditions and a couple of mediocre throws from me.

Saturday was a breakthrough for us though as we medaled for the first time. We were runner-up in the re-scheduled event from Snellville that was rained out in May.

The field was smaller than usual as the event was held in conjunction with the GADDC annual picnic but it was still an official event and there was quite a bit of talent nonetheless. We were beaten by the gold medal winner from the distance competition at last year’s ESPN Great Outdoor Games, Tim Gieb. He was unbeatable that day as he threw a perfect score in the first round. That has not been done in the last 2 ½ years since they changed the format so I guess that we cannot complain. This was Brook’s first medal so it is now hanging in the kitchen where she can look at it. The other consolation is the fact that he had to borrow a dog to beat us as he does not have a dog that is capable of competing in that level of toss and fetch.

Maybe we can continue the good results this weekend as the IDDHA is having a Hot-Zone competition in Ballground, GA on Saturday. It should be fun as Hot-Zone is in the morning and then a splash contest at the dock diving pool in the afternoon and finally a distance competition at 6 pm. The field for the distance should be tough as Greg Tresan will likely compete despite the fact that he is hosting the event. He won the distance competition in Indianapolis and I believe set an over 40 year old world record in the process with a throw of nearly 230 feet in less than ideal conditions.

So that is what Brook has been up to other than being a sweet girl who loves to snuggle and try to crowd me out of the bed in the mornings. She and Blitz are now starting to compete for the pillows. Ha.

 

Update from Brook's new Dad

Hi Rebecca,

I just thought that you might like to get an update on what Brook has been doing on her summer vacation…

She has been one busy little girl the last couple of months as this is the Frisbee tournament season.

We were down in Florida the weekend of June 3 for the FL State Championships. We only had one good round and actually had a bit of a meltdown in the second round but still managed to finish in the top ten.

The weekend before that was the Freedom Weekend Aloft Nationals in Anderson, SC. It ended up being a good tournament as we finished in the top ten. We actually held the lead in the first round for about 2 hours as we were one of the first teams to go. We did not do as well in the second round as I would have liked however that was mostly the result of my poor efforts. I am still quite proud of her. To finish in the top ten with 77 entries and some of the best handlers in the country is still pretty good.

Next weekend is the big trip to Indianapolis for the 2006 IDDHA World Championships. We will be there for the weekend and hopefully we will be able to put together two good rounds each day.

The next weekend is the re-scheduled throw and catch event that was rained out in Snellville and then July 8 is a Distance and Hot-Zone Competition in Ballground, GA. They are having Hot-Zone in the morning and Distance in the late afternoon with a fun event at the dock diving pool between events where the dogs get to cool off in the pool. That is the home of Brook’s trainer so we are out there almost every weekend we are home and we were out there last Saturday starting to prepare for the Hot-Zone competition.

In addition, we have competitions scheduled in Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio and Illinois and Georgia coming up later in the year. If we end up qualifying there is also the possibility of going to Scottsdale, AZ to compete in the Frisbee portion of the Cynosport World Championships. We shall see.

Needless to say, she is having a great time and a very busy summer.
