|2 Fast Fur U Flyball Team||
Amber started her flyball training as a pup in 2001. Her older sister “Holly” was an active member of Fetch N Fly. Amber made her debut with Fetch N Fly in 2004 and then took a 3½ year hiatus. Amber’s number one job was to be a family dog and the kids she lived with were involved in so much, her flyball career was put on hold.
Fast forward to 2007, the kids were older and it was once again time for Amber. We found some old friends and joined 2 Fast Fur U. Amber went back to flyball like she had never missed a practice. Her fastest time is 4.9 as start dog. She earned her Onyx in 2012. She enjoyed chasing balls, swimming, hiking and sleeping under the desk.

On New Years Day 2008 the 2 Fast Fur U team introduced a group
of local 4-Hers to flyball. BT had a blast and was invited to join the team. Incredibly focused, BT was extremely reliable, would run for anyone and pass with any dog - just say GO. Her fastest split was 4.296. Belgian Tervurens are a versatile breed but fyball was her favorite sport, by far. BT was an AKC breed champion and earned titles in obedience, rally & agility (AKC
& USDAA). Titles: FD, FDX, FDCh, FDCh-S, FDCh-G, FM, FMX. Owner: Susan Clickner
She loved flyball but she sometimes had a mind of her own when it came to training. She successfully competed in a variety of 4-H competitions such as obedience, rally, grooming and handling, and agility. Owner: Jimmy Kramer
Dottie Sue was a border collie mix who was adopted from a rescue to which she was surrendered for being "too busy." What to do with a busy Border Collie? Learn to play flyball! Dottie Sue learned flyball along with her owner as a member of the Buffalo Wings Flyball Team. She was happy to join 2 Fast Fur U in 2016 and to be back in the flyball lanes after a 4-year absence due to injury. She loved the sport and earned her FMX title at CanAm in October 2018.
Titles: FD, FDX, FDCH, FDCH-S,FDCH-G, FM, FMX, FMCH, MBD, MBDX, MBDCH, and MBDCH-S.

Poppy is an original 2FFU team dog who began training in 2006. In
his first year of racing he was chosen by Burnin' Rubber (Ottawa, Ontario) as a dream team member and earned his nickname "Bring- it-Home" Poppy. A rescue dog from KY, we aren't too certain of his parentage but looks to be a Papillon and terrier mix. Poppy has enjoyed running clean-up for his team and retired from full time racing in December of 2012. He looks forward to running on a vets team in 2014. Titles include FD, FDX, FDCh, FDCh- S, FFCh- G, FM, and FMX. Owner: Beth Johnson
Arty was the inspiration behind 2 Fast Fur U. Arty was rescued by the Jack Russell Terrier group in Rochester and adopted at the age of 4 months. He was a lively little fellow. In his formative years, he participated in Jack Russell Terrier racing, agility, and Rally Obedience (one of his favs).
While he did enjoy flyball for a few years, he hung up his flyball harness to pursue other interests. He loved kayaking and one of his favorite things to do was sit in his "old man" chair and watch the world go by. Titles: FD, FDX, FDCh, FDCh-S. Owner: Kathy Allen
Louie (aka Lou-Bob)
Lou-Bob has been a strong member of the 2 Fast Fur U Flyball team since it started. He rarely makes an error and has been a solid height dog for his entire career. Lou-Bob earned his Irondog award in October of 2013. He is the first (and only) dog on the team to have earned this coveted award. It is awarded to a dog that has raced in NAFA for 10 consecutive years. Lou-Bob also enjoys agility but his true love is performing tricks. He loves to practice his tricks and would perform every day if he could. He loves to travel and when he's relaxing, you can usually find him all curled up in a nest of blankets on a bed or the couch. Titles: FD, FDX, FDCh, FDCh-S, FDCh-G, FM, FMX, FMCH, ONYX, MBD, MBDX, MBDCH and IRONDOG. Owner: Eleanor Rideout

In addition to flyball, Maddie competed in rally (RN, RA, RE), obedience (CD) and agility (CPE- CL1-R). Out of all her activities, Maddie enjoyed flyball the best by far!

Morgan was been involved in Flyball for four years.
When she was eight months old she had to have major surgery on both knees for luxating patella. At that time it was beyond expectation that she would ever be able to run in flyball competition. She became a very solid 7" height dog. To keep physically fit along with flyball, she was involved in power swimming at a local indoor pool for dogs. Titles: FD, FDX, FDCh, FDCh-S, FDCh-G, FM, FMX, FMCH, MBD, MBDX, MBDCH, MBDCH-S, MBDCH-G, MBM. Owner: Ginny Sturges
