A whopping 22 dogs and cats are going for gold today in the 2016 Pawlympics Wabbit Tracking Event. My sister Bailie, who has a Tracking Dog Title will be judging the competition. She is well qualified and ready to see some good tracking today! If you click on the participants names below their tracking photos, you will be sent off to their websites if you would like to “track them down” and if they have a blog.
In the sport of tracking, you either get a medal or you don’t so so everyone who tracked the wabbit gets a Gold Medal. Please feel free to take the medal as you leave today! Congratulations to all 22 participants and now Gold Medal Wabbit Trackers!
The event will start off with me as I’m in serious tracking training at the moment. I’m in my USA uniform (even though I still have my UK Passport) and am off to get that wabbit!
Walter was the first to track after me. Poor fellow could hardly hold still at the start flag he was so ready to get the wabbit!
Noodle really has his nose to the ground at the start. We were afraid he may have frozen right then and there.
Zaphod picked up some drifting odor on the tree…or maybe he was distracted by a tree rat?
Pierre noticed a wabbit had recently passed through the green stuff.
Mini appears to have a serious case of wabbit on the brain TV going on.
Dash and Lilly are having an issue with the hot and humid weather conditions, but they worked through it.
Cricket may be hot, hot, hot on the track of the wabbit, but is cool as a cucumber…maybe too cool as the ground turned to snow!
Speaking of snow, it looks like Frankie is ready for some Blue Bunny ice cream!
Oreo and Addi are using the team tracking approach to round up that wily wabbit.
As competitors finish their tracks, the wabbits really started to pile up! Luckily Sparkle took on the duties of the wabbit wrangler!
Check out the expression on Christmas‘ face! This is one serious tracking dog!
Wowzers! It looks like the wabbit is playing tricky hide and seek games with Molly and the wood pile!
Poor Dory! Her mom was keeping her on a short leash. Give her more leash so she can get that wabbit please!
Hailey was also experiencing poor leash handling on her track. Humans need to learn to give a dog some space to work!
The event went to the cats for a moment. Madi has such patience. Cats have great luck with the wabbits getting real close!
Looks like Easy got the wabbit. That wabbit is in for some torture. Enjoy life while it lasts wabbit!
Bentley is in a real bind with that aluminum wall and sunshine doing weird things to the scent trail. Work through it buddy!
Sam is picking up on a wabbit nest in that bush. Way to sniff it out!
Ernie also started wrangling wabbits at the finish. So many wabbits, so little time!
There was a chill in the track as Miss Abby T. Lab was sidetracked into some nose work behavior with the vehicle. The judge was able to get her back on the wabbit track and off the tire track pretty quickly.
Barbarella was having a blast singing along the track in pursuit of the wabbit.
Some rude dude got in the way on Katy’s track, but she managed to move through and finish up her track!
Thank you again to all the wonderful participants in our Going for Gold Wabbit Tracking Event today. We hope you all had a fun time running your tracks!
