Video: Air Lyra, Portrait of a Champion

Air Lyra – 5-minute short from Luka Dakskobler on Vimeo.

Here’s a 5-minute version of a documentary about a very special border collie named Lyra, who introduced dog frisbee to Slovenia. Although Lyra is certainly a naturally talented athlete, what becomes clear from this portrait is that she is much more: she’s an extremely intelligent and engaging dog. Her owner and handler, an American woman named Jean McCollister, allows the dog incredible leeway, including allowing her to spend time with another family to whom Lyra is clearly attached. It’s a remarkable story of a fascinating relationship.
