View Full Version : Scottsdale Pet Fest

We arrived back late last night from the Scottsdale Pet Fest. It was a ton of fun. It was a bit cloudy on Saturday, but hot and sunny and beautiful on Sunday. Any of you who went to Cynosports last November will remember the great Westworld venue. Really beautiful place.
Lots of newbies out there all weekend. Some who would not even jump off the dock at first were flying by the afternoon.
Congratulations to Marilyn and Phoebe for jumping 23' 4" to get into the finals and then getting 1st Place in the Pro Finals with a jump of 22' 3". That Phoebe has beautiful form and a great personality. Dunkin also performed like a star and kept the crowd laughing at his antics.
Kudos to Marilyn.
Greg and Randy were hilarious all weekend while announcing. Greg commented on every person and dog that walked by and Randy played straight man to all his jokes. Las Vegas should hire them as a comedy act.
Thanks Tony for another great time. We enjoyed Jumping, Swimming, Wrangling, and Spending time with our Splashdogs Family.
Brooke & Chase
P.S. Chase chipped a tooth catching the football in his mouth on one of his jumps. Such a feisty competitor!

Congratulations Marilyn and Phoebe! How fabulous!! Did you use the chicken with the bikini or the bumper? I know you switched off in the O.C. You gotta love the little girl labs!!

Oh, hey Kim . . . I finally saw your video WITH the sound! It's even more funny! And that's me saying something about you not needing a stinking bumper! I was using Cera's camera, and I was also filming when Tessa jumped 20.03. Yes, that's me SCREAMING!

first of all, I want to thank Tony, Randy & Greg for putting on such a great event. Westworld is gorgeous! And, As Brooke said, Greg & Randy make a hilarious comedy team. There were lots of newbies that were very excited about this sport. That was fun to see how much they progressed in 2 days-wow! :)
Chase did a great job this weekend. Very consistent jumps. Of course, Brooke does very consistent throws- that does help :lol: :lol:
Everyone, thank you for all your kind responses regarding my dogs & me. It means alot to me as I have great admiration & love for you and your dogs. We missed having you guys down there.
I was very proud of my kids too. Phoebe & I were connected and Dunkin had a PB of 14' 9" -who would have thought :shock: :shock:
We can't wait to see you all at Wags! 8) 8)
Marilyn, Phoebe & Dunkin

Greg and Randy were funny. At one point Marilyn's husband Marty walked in front of the judge's table during some of their ongoing banter, and Greg said:
"hey everyone in the audience, look over here at this guy walking by in the new Splashdogs hat and shirt, which by the way are available at the registration desk for only $ 20.00. Oh wait a minute, I recognize that guy, that is Mr. Dunkin." So Marty is no longer called Marty or Marilyn's husband or even Phoebe or Dunkin's dad. He is now Mr. Dunkin.
Melissa, he chipped the top two right teeth. :mrgreen: The farthest right broke off at the bottom and left inside of the tooth and the next one over (the front right tooth) broke off on the right inside of the tooth. So, there is kind of a big gap there now. I am putting peroxide on it and watching to make sure it does not absess. I don't know what the tooth fairy is suppose to leave for chips of teeth!!! But, I did just give him a little spoonful of ice cream. It certainly has NOT slowed down his ability to eat or his appetite! :P By the way, Melissa you will appreciate this, whenever a guy in an Arizona State t-shirt would walk by, Greg would yell over the microphone at him "Are you a USC fan?" and they would turn around and snarl at him. The reactions were pretty funny.

Did anyone get any good pics from the Scottsdale Pet Fest event??
I don't have any good pics of Kahlua and was hoping that someone got some good pics of all the dogs!
BTW... stats are up!!!!

I'd love pix also if anyone got some?? :lol: I know some of the audience did but I doubt they'll read our board :D

My friend took some pictures at the contest. I do not know how many different dogs he got pictures of. I will post them when I get them from him. Me and Maggie had a great time. Maggie is shooting for 20' or better at the next contest. Hope to see you guys soon.
