What is Flyball
Flyball races offer fast paced action with plenty of excitement for dogs, handlers, and especially spectators. Each of the four dogs on the relay team must run down the Flyball course, over four jumps, retrieve a ball that is released from the Flyball box, then return down the same lane. The object is to have all four dogs complete the course, without error, in the fastest possible time.
The first Flyball tournament was held in 1983 and the North American Flyball Association formed in 1985. Since then the sport has grown dramatically with more than 300 registered teams in North America. And worldwide, there are Flyball organizations in Great Britain and continental Europe, New Zealand, Australia and most recently South Africa and Japan.

It with heavy hearts that Woof Gang says good-bye to one of their core dogs, Anna.
Little Anna Oakley was the first dog to achieve all the U-FLI® milestone plaques except the very last one. She was the first to achieve every U-FLI® pin except for the first couple. Anna has been the U-FLI® Top Dog since July, 2005. It was sad to see her life end just a couple tournaments away from earing the final Milestone plaque.
Over Anna's short career she traveled 71,602 miles (67,928 driven and 3,674 by air). We estimate that Anna ran over 89 miles in the U-FLI® Flyball Tournament lanes. Anna earned her FM in the NAFA league before U-FLI® was formed.

Arete's Sophie's Choice, FMX
They say that 17 years is a very long life for a Golden, but it is not long enough. August 11th we made the heart wrenching decision to let Sophie move on... She went peacefully at home, surrounded by love. Our “Mama” Sophie, the Grande Dame, was the core of our family. She was the heart and soul, the serious one - there to take care of all of us. She was in our lives for 17 years, and she will be in our hearts forever... We miss you Sweet Pea... Run Free...
