Rusty, got his AAD at
home with Dog-On-It after a six month struggle.
I finally got Phil through the third Advanced Standard Agility run. For nearly six months that is all I have needed
to get my Advanced Agility Dog title. Phil was slow by .2 sec and .8 sec on separate occasions. Then last
week he did a front cross and pushed me off the next to last jump to lose an otherwise clean, fast run. On 1-20-07,
with lots of friendly faces in the crowd and on the grass fields I like so much at practice, I did it! It was early
in the morning and Phil started so slow we had to make 2 tries at the second jump. But I was able to pick up enough
time in the rest of the run to cover for him.
