First day of fair welcomed by fair day

But for the less adventurous, there are plenty of other activities every day at the fair. The Disc-Connected K9s show was delighting all ages this afternoon, as dogs rescued from shelters and poor conditions soared through the air to catch frisbees tossed by Lawrence Frederick, who trains the dogs.

Getting a dog up to show-level is a long process, he said.

"You give them warmth, you give them shelter... to get them to a point where they'll trust and love you," he said.

Making his first debut before an audience today was Hyzer, a 17-month-old Jack Russell Terrier.
