    Mari and I drove to Medical Lake, WA yesterday to see an event with "disc dogs" - dogs that catch frisbees. We'd never seen this sport. Mari has an Australian Shepherd puppy coming in a couple of weeks and I'd been doing some reading on this breed and discovered they enjoy this sport. It's insane, these dogs belong in Cirque du Soleil. I brought along a camera and a couple of lenses, not sure of what we'd be seeing. Many dog breeds were in attendance, I'm not even sure of what some of them were, but they were all fast and focused on the disc. The dogs are scored by # of catches, where on the field the catch is made and extra points for leaping up and grabbing on out of the air. Nice crowd too, very friendly and informal. We had a good time, hope to do it again. discdogs11-6-17-17. discdogs17-6-17-17. discdogs27-6-17-17. discdogs23-6-17-17. discdogs20-6-17-17.
