Malaysia Dog Day 2009

Mom brought me to the Malaysia Dog Day organized by last Sunday! YAYYY! I went with Mom, Gramma, Grampa, Aunty Jane and Rachel (Aunty Vivian was working that day, so Kenji couldn't come..*sad face*), and boy was it a long day!

This time around, the event was held in an air-conditioned stadium! Cool! Too bad it was so little and could only fit a handful of people at the side (the terrace seats were only for humans, so naturally those who came with their furkids didn't stay long =( ) We reached the stadium at about 12.30pm, and the games were mostly finished...*sigh* Still, Mom said that she entered me into their Pre-Novice obedience, that's why she came late, coz she doesn't want me to get too restless.

Look at the amount of people at the stadium! This was when the police K9 unit demonstrated their obedience and agility skills...awesome!

Me, I got to sit on a chair to wait for the obedience trials to begin...heh!

Mom didn't manage to take a lot of photos, coz there were just too many people in the stadium, and her camera was dying out her to NOT charge the battery before leaving home, right? This was taken during the Most Creative Dress Up was won by none other than the fabulous Amber-Mae! *grins* I didn't get to speak to her this time around though, but still...I think her clown costume was SUPER! *grins* Congrats, Amber!

Here are some other doggie photos that Mom managed to snap before her camera died on her...this little Pomeranian cutie sat on the owner's lap the whole time! Mom said she is too cute!

This is Duke, a fellow obedience trial participant...he's such a good sport! *grins* Some other participants include my friends Dou Dou the poodle (from my previous post here), Ginger and Ziggy! Ziggy and Dou Dou won second and third place respectively! Congrats to them for their awesome work! Me? I didn't win a placing, but Mom is still proud of me because I got a little improvement from my previous trials...88 points. *grins* She was quite surprised that I paid a little more attention this time around because:

I had to wait....

And wait....

And wait (notice the smile has gone)...of course, with bathroom breaks and some improvised play time (with my leash as a tug) in between...

And wait SOME MORE...o.O" Yes, the day had become TOO long because of delays. The trials were scheduled to be on at 2pm, but we only started at 6.30pm! O.O By the time we finished our exercises in the Pre-Novice class, it was already 8.30pm...we didn't stay after that to view the score because everybody was hungry and tired. Mom asked Dou Dou's Mom to help us check the scores, and when she asked when the whole event ended, it was about 10.30pm! Freaky, don't you think? But it was still quite a fun event as it was not hot inside the stadium! Hopefully it won't get dragged too long next time. *wink*

Hi scottie,
you were there too ?
Mom and dad went for that, and they said luckily they didn't brought me there, as they said it's soooo crowded and the place is so small.

They didn't stay long too.. like for 2 hours then they left.

Hopefully next year they could find a better place. :-)

Petra said...

Happy Malasia Dog Day! You were the champ, Nottie Scottie!

erin said...

The Dog Day sounds like it could be really neat but I think they need to plan it better next time. Air conditioning is a good idea but I can't believe how delayed it got! You were there waiting a really long time. There's no way I would have been able to sit for that long. You are way more well trained than I am. At least you got to see lots of dogs!

Snowy and Crystal said...

Hey buddy, long time no see! well, it is mommy's fault. We are here to check on you! hope that you are doing well. So nice to see your updated pictures

missing ya
