It is pretty incredible to watch them now and know where they started. BB was Jan's first agility dog and they learned about handling, and distance, and directionals, and all that stuff together. They have worked hard and have not only proved that practice makes perfect, but also that if you put your mind to something you can do it.
BB has been plagued with a shoulder injury off and on over the past few years which has made things difficult. There was a time when we weren't sure if she would run again. Jan also has had her own problems (damn those knees!), and they have overcome that to be back in the ring having a great time.
They earned their last needed Gamble Q on a tough course- Jan had to send BB over the dogwalk TWICE! in the mini, and then a tough closing gamble aswell. It was a fantastic run and gave me goosebumps. Our whole group erupted in cheers and celebration. It was pretty awesome.
We are so lucky to have such awesome students like Jan and BB. We are incredibly proud of their success. They are the perfect example of what Go Dog Go strives for. No matter the challenge- work hard, open your mind, and success will be yours.
Congratulations Jan. :)
