Saturday Afternoon Went to the Dogs

Holland Park with Central City Tower in the backgroundSaturday afternoon – yet another beautiful day during the first ever Spring Olympics! – found us back at Holland Park. This time we went to see the Kee-Gigg K9 Agility Team.

I shot this rough video to share the experience with you, my readers. These dogs (and their owners) were definitely having fun!

Jamica food booth at Surrey's Celebration SiteWe then grabbed a quick bite at the Jamaican food booth; Jamaican patties are flat meat pies with a spicy kick! Good though.

We headed home before the expected 20,000 arrived for the evening concert. I’m impressed with our small park in Whalley!

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I love these pictures and videos, it’s like a little bit of Canada right in my boiling hot Aussie lounge room … who says the world isn’t small?

Loved the agility dogs in the video lots – especially cool that they were obviously having a ball and there were so many different types and ability levels. Olympics is sometimes all “perfect perfect perfect” and it was nice to see something that was more … “real” isn’t the right word, but I guess you know what I mean.

Do you know you can upload YouTube videos with a setting that lets other people add/edit the closed captions for you? At least I think you can – never uploaded a video yet, but I’ve seen other videos with the ability turned on.

Ricky, I’m glad you’re enjoying these pictures and videos. I shot this one with you in mind. And yes, both the dogs and the humans were having a blast!

I think there’s too much pressure on the athletes to succeed. I’ve seen a few interviews with Canadian athletes in tears for letting down their country. Heartbreaking. What happened to enjoying the experience?

No, I didn’t know about that YouTube setting. I’ll look for it. I know I should have captioned the whole video, but I would’ve been a month! Sometimes it’s necessary to draw the line somewhere. ;)
