I hope this email finds you
well. I thought you would just die to hear the latest on Abby's agility
accomplishments. We had a trial this weekend where I decided to
move Abby up in Jumpers to the Open class. She got her first leg in Open Jumpers
yesterday with a very nice run! She's really coming along and seemed a little
confident this past weekend. I have kept her in Novice standard since she still
needs some work on things but most likely next season, she will be in all open
as she is kinda on the border between the two at this point. I just want to make
sure not to move her up too quickly but she's so darn cute in the ring, and in
everything she does. She's the cutest thing ever. Just wanted to share my brags
with you. So now Abby is CH Thornapple Pure Poison NAP, NJP!!!! XOXOXO Shari
How many people do you
know who are competing in agility right now in shorts and a T-shirt outdoors,
lol? Hey Shari --- Is AL GORE hiding out in West Palm Beach????
CONGRATULATIONS Shari &

her Int. Championship....I'm so so proud, she is only 20 months

has 5.5 CAC and needs 4, next months we go to Belgium and
then I hope to finish her Dutch, Belgium and Int. Championship after her 27

of her....she is doing so great. Next months I try to handle my other bitches to
their Dutch Junior Championship ;-)

GORGEOUS that boy is!!!! I enclose a photo of him. I know it's not the best
