I photographed the Kansas State Disc Dog Championship Quadruped at the Clinton Lake Youth Sports Complex in Lawrence, Kansas on June 14, 2014. The 2014 Quadruped Series was held in three cities: Houston, Texas on March 29; Kokomo, Indiana on May 17; and Lawrence, Kansas.
These dogs are true athletes. They race 70 yards at full speed, leap several feet off the ground and snatch a flying disc out of the air. When they’re not competing, they rest in front of misting fans, in wading pools or air-conditioned pens. These pups are well pampered by their owners.
