I took Lucy to her first Dallas Dog and Disc Club meeting today.
Lucy loves to play with her little floppy frisbee in our backyard. She's just sort of naturally taken to it. She jumps up to catch just about every pathetic throw I toss out to her.

We got so lucky! It just happened to be that Dallas Dog and Disc Club was having a meet up at a park nearby this weekend. And next weekend, Ricky begins his first day of Therapy Dog Prep class. I'm pretty sure the universe is saying "Yes!" to us.
So today, Lucy and I headed out to the meeting, having no idea what to expect.
We were greeted by the nicest people! I recognized some of their names from the website I had visited. Lucy and I watched as the other dogs took their turns at catching the frisbee.

It was all so exciting, Lucy finally just couldn't take it anymore!
|"Please give me my turn!"|
In just a short amount of time, I learned a bunch of great stuff I need to know to help Lucy grow into a super champ. These people I met are a wealth of information and are so passionate about disc dogs---and they just want to spread the word to eager learners like Lucy and me!
I'm definitely going to sign up and pay my dues and be a member of this club! I can't wait for next month's meeting. Lucy and I have some new things to work on between now and then.
Someday soon, Lucy, you'll be flying!
