From the land of the Rising Sun...
After a 24 hour trip to Arizona, the team from Japan was looking forward to the start of the festivities. This is the fifth year that the team from Japan has attended the Cynosport World Games. You might remember the Games from Dallas where Noriko Tsuda and her PWC, Happy Quick, won the 12" Grand Prix, the first from another country to win this prestigous title.
Eleven dogs are competing in Scottsdale this year and the team is looking forward to good competition and having fun.
The team consists of:
Ayami Suzuki running Mini Poodle, Puma
Yoko Kato running Border Collie, Karin
Yuko Matsuoka running Border Collie, Suzuran
Yoshimi Kojima running Border Collie, Pasta
Rie Miyoshi running Labrador Retriever, Buddy
