NOTRA Nationals October 11-13 Flareon got our hopes up in the first program by finishing a few lengths ahead of our local “dog-to-beat”. Unfortunately for the rest of the weekend, she preferred to try and remove her muzzle after the first turn – a fact which we verified by running her without the muzzle in a practice, and watched her whip around the track. On Saturday, Miss T decided it was a bit too warm for her liking, and...
