Congratulations to Shelly and her rescue dog Diesel on their new 1st place ribbon! They also received another ribbon for Q’ing (we assume that means qualifying but after looking for a while still can’t confirm!) Diesel and Shelly achieved first place in the AKC Novice Jumpers with Weaves (JWW) class in the agility trial last week. We are all so proud of Shelly and Diesel. You guys are both on your way to supah-stardom!
Shelly said the really great part, well second to winning those beautiful ribbons of course, was when the judge asked who Diesel’s breeder was and Shelly got to say ‘He’s an ABC Rescue dog’!
You can also read about Diesel and another ABC alumni, Princess and Lisa’s agility achievements in the 1/31/2012 blog post, “Rags to Ribbons”. With so few basset hounds participating in agility it’s amazing that TWO of our ABC alumni are on their way to stardom.
