Ruby... mostly Australian Cattle Dog. She's evolving as a tracker and speedster - if chasing a lure counts.
She ran a 7.74 sec 100 yds last weekend. This week it was 7.57 sec (27.04 mph). Personal Best! They get 2 runs per day at this AKC sanctioned event. For her breed (mixed) - All American large dog, non-pedigree - she's currently ranked at #163 in the US. Top 5 run 31+ mph. Amazingly fast.

Saw the competition for this event pop up on TV.. I think on the 4th. It is incredible to watch. Made me think of your Ruby.Ruby ended the 100 yqrd dash season with a >28 mph run. She broke into the top 100 fastest in the US AKC trials. Not bad for her 1st year!
Summer's here and the latest competition is "dock diving". A 35" running start to how far she can leap into a pool. She skipped over beginner and master (intermediate) and is performing at the senior level.
Today she broke 23'!

Yet another spin on AKC dock diving. Air Retrieve... Lure is suspended 2' above the dock and it's further back after each successful grab. The top tier is 21'. Ruby is grabbing it at 19'. I love the flat out form. I never knew this type of competition existed. Sure beats primping and running in a circle.Saw the competition for this event pop up on TV.. I think on the 4th.
