BOB and Group 2 at the match!
I have never had so many compliments on a dog before in my life!
I did speak to the woman who awarded her the BOB to see what I might
need to fix, improve, do differently etc....she said the performance was
fantastic...she loved Ella - and wondered why I was asking about the handling
- that it was very nicely done. I was pleased with that.  Lorna

My intern took this photo of Abby when she was at my work last week.
Then she made it look all cute and I thought you would love to see it!
I also wanted to let you know that in Abby's last agility trial over the
New Year's weekend, she qualified on another standard and jumpers run.
She has another trial next weekend, so I will keep you posted. Hope you
are well and that the new year brings you health, wealth, and happiness
to you and your loved ones. Shari
