Mary Ray

What did people think of the BBCs coverage of Mary Ray last night?
It always brings a lump to my throat watching her, but I got so annoyed last night when the camera kept pulling back. All we could see was the pretty lights swirling around the ring.
I wanted to see the whole performance of Mary and her dog not the lighting effects.

I am afraid I can't stand heelwork to music It is great that the dogs are being trained to do "something", but the whole HTM thing makes me cringe! Sorry!

Same here, it just doesnt seem a natural thing for a dog to do, although I do appreciate how well trained they are, I just hate it.

Glad I wasn't the only one to be getting really frustrated at the camera's panning out so you actually didn't get to see half the performance!

I was shouting at the TV as getting so fed up with it.

Really thought last nights was great just a shame we missed quite a bit of it wasn't it!

loved it! Levi looked fabulous,what a dog, hes My Mavs cousin ,so im biased!!!!

I wasnt too fussed when richard worked his dog as she looked alittle flat compared to levi,but it was interesting routine & "cute"

Mary is so talented , & had 4th in the dog ticket (ob) with the fabulous quincy on Friday, im not sure if she was doing agility also?

She puts so much into the dog world a true inspiration & a natural talent.

She also has been very successful with other breeds, & was the first person to make up a BSD in Ob (a terv) & has done brilliantly with shelties & loves her lurchers too!

I used to really enjoy watching it, but I'm afraid the last two years, I got a bit bored.

Not taking anything away from how well trained her dogs are, but I started to wonder whether it was time for the slot to be filled by other types of 'dog entertainment' showing training/handling skills of different kinds? HTM could still make an appearance from time to time, but if not on each year, it might seems less repetitive.

Did you think Levi looked Cringy? did you think he looked like he hated it?

If its not your thing dont do it, its not my thing so i dont do it, but surely you can appreciate a dog having a ball

No its not natural,but how much dog stuff is natural?
Are you critising Mary or HWTM in general?
