Hi, I'm Jeddah, the Little Black Dog. I've been playing flyball since early 1998, and I just love it! I recently earned enough points for my FDGCh title (30,000 points), and I was the very first dog in Australia to get that title. My Mum is really proud of me.
I am the height dog for our team, and jump 11 inches. I run as part of the Croydon Rocket Scientists. We were the first team in Australia to run under 20 secs in competition. We won the 1999, 2002, 2003 and 2004 Australian National Championships for Division One, as well as the Team of the Year award for 1999/2000, 2000/01, 2001/02 and 2002/03.
That's enough bragging. When I'm not at flyball, I boss my Mum around, put up with Ricky (I love him really, just don't tell anyone), and I love walks, and rides, and the beach, and the park, and my bean-bag, and food, and running with the other dogs, and being with my Mum. Did I mention that I like food?
I have to say that flyball has been a very important part of my life. I
didn't start flyball until I was 5 years old, but I really can't imagine my life
without it! I am so glad that my Mum and her friends realize how important
it is that we dogs have a life too!
