The Ten Finalists for the Alpo Frisbee Challenge

THE BORACAY SUPERSTAR
Every dog lover who has ever been to Boracay knows this duo: Erick and Julie are their names - and Frisbee is their game. They were the 2007 ALPO Frisbee Challenge champions. Will they be able to hold on to their title this year?

Erick Kim and Julie - 1st Place (Manila Eliminations)

TRAINER'S PRIDE
Lito is a professional dog trainer. Kim is every trainer's dream dog: obedient, alert and smart. But are those qualities enough to get them the top prize in this Saturday's championship match?

Lito Barrameda and Kim - Second Place (Manila Eliminations)

THE ASPIN (Asong Pinoy) FRISBEE CATCHER
Nice rescued Poypoy when he was a pup. You've come a long way, Poy! Show 'em that native dogs can do it, too.

Nice Rodriguez and Poypoy - Third Place (Manila Eliminations)

BABY DOG BLUES
Vina's mom is Kim - the second placer in the Manila Eliminations. At SM Clark, Kim was placed in the throwing ring with Vina upon request. Reason? Vina whimpered and experienced anxiety attacks when her mom was not in sight. A second dog in the ring will no longer be allowed in the Championship Match. Is this the end of a Mama's Girl's bid for a Gold Medal?

Oscar Enciso and Vina -First Place (Pampanga Eliminations)

THE CROWD-PLEASER
Frisbee-catching is not all that Boger can do. His wide-range of talents, including posing in a "sit" position with his front paws up in the air has endeared him to the SM Clark crowd. Every round of applause from the crowd seems to pump up the energy of this dashing duo.

Atty. Byron San Pedro and Boger - Second Place (Pampanga Eliminations)

MR. EXCITEMENT
Archie and Agos were the only finalists who had to go through a harrowing tie-breaker in the Elimination Rounds. This team definitely had us chewing on our nails as we watched them try to beat the clock in catching that one last frisbee that made all the difference. Will we get the same cliffhanger ending from them in the Championships?

Archie David and Agos - Third Place (Pampanga Eliminations)

THE SPECIALISTS
This team moved like well-oiled machine on the frisbee ring: Kayu caught every single frisbee thrown at him by Aletta! Theirs is the highest score ever in the elimination round - a whopping 47 points!

Aletta Yniguez and Kayu - First Place (Batangas Eliminations)

NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK
The youngest team in the competition has a "magic" formula of their own. Once Baron learns to focus more, they may just beat all their other rivals for the top prize.

Gino Bailon and Baron- Second Place (Batangas Eliminations)
AIN'T NO FRISBEE FAR ENOUGH: THE LONG-DISTANCE CHAMPS
They hold the record for the farthest frisbee thrown that was ever successfully caught within the throwing area. Aidelbert will probably try for the 7-point mark in the finals. If Java catches several frisbees from his master's "discus" throws, he will probably be the dog to beat in the Frisbee finals.

Aidelbert Tangcora and Java - Third Place (Batangas Eliminations)

THE WILDCARD ENTRY
They had the highest score from among all eliminated contestants. When ALPO decided to have an even number of 10 entries in the Finals, Jessie and Zheal got the Wildcard slot. Perhaps this team's long trip from Zamboanga was not in vain after all?

Jessie Abilla and Zheal - Highest Scoring Team from Eliminated Contestants (Wildcard)

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ mefindhome.org if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. Blogger.com allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ mefindhome.org than to comment here. Thank you very much!
