I'm back!!

2 years older but still going strong!

I can't believe that it has been more than 2 years since I have last posted! So many things have happened since I nearly killed myself on the tire jump :)

With both my border collie housemates competing in agility my mom and I (well really my mom) decided that I would go into semi-retirement. To be honest, I really am too good for the boring weekend shows and just prefer the 'big' trials like Regional and National Championships. As you can see by my picture, not only do I like those 'big' trials, I am also successful at them!

I have had some great successes in the past 2 years, I completed my Bronze Award Titles in both Jumpers and Snooker with the AAC. I completed my Intermediate Agility Title and my Excellence Jumper Title with the CKC. I have qualified for the Canadian Nationals for the past 3 years.

One of the most exciting things was that I made the podium at this years AAC Canadian Nationals coming in 9th overall! My mom was absolutely thrilled, she says that it is pretty awesome for a 9 year old Wire Fox in such a competitive division (there were lots of previous World Team dogs in my division!) I even came in 2nd place in the Jumpers 1 class - very impressive if I do say so myself :)

Here is a video that mom made of me, hope you enjoy it!

Not only have I been busy with agility trials, I have now also earned my first Dock Dogs title! My furthest jump is 6'3" to date but I keep getting better. The season is over for this year but we are looking forward to next year :)
