- Zack can do agility too!
Looks like I spoke too soon. Zack
made his debut in the agility ring in Jan 2006 (at the ripe old age of 5) on a course with three sides
fenced and the fourth side staffed by a human picket fence of friends, just
in case. He
came through and Qualified, and we've never looked back. Since then, he has earned his AD
in USDAA (and is competing at the Masters level in both Jumpers and Snooker)
and after only three CPE trials, has earned his CL3-H and CL3-F and is well on
his way to his CL3 title.
- Zack has found his calling!
Because of his behavioral issues around other dogs and his lack of a solid
Recall, Zack's future in open-ring agility is questionable at best. But on a
lark, I entered him in the recreational Lure Coursing event at the 2005
USDAA Nationals to see if he'd like it. He not only liked it, he's a
natural - he posted the fastest time of the day and won a Gold Medal!
- Jasmine has a Brother!
January 2002, we adopted Zack, a 1-yo rescue Border Collie, from the
Marin Humane Society. He's a
handful, with truckload of baggage, but he's very sweet and we love him.
- Jasmine does Agility!
Even though she is fast as the wind when running in
the woods or after a frisbee, she hasn't yet turned on the speed in the
agility ring so she'll never be national champion. But she loves it and
performs solidly. She is just one Gamble leg away from her USDAA

- Jasmine does PowerSports!
Jasmine took to the JetSki immediately, even
jumping on it by herself in anticipation of taking a ride. She always wears a canine PFD
in case of a spill. The snowmobile wasn't quite as thrilling for her - too loud and bumpy.
But she's game to try anything as long as her folks tell her it's OK.
