Well well well..



Well well well...she did it again! I was so proud of Zen yesterday when she became a member of Team Great Britain and will represent GB at the World Agility Championships 2009 in Austria.

Not only did she qualify but she came 1st overall in medium and I think she was the only dog in all heights to run clear in every round. I can't stop saying how proud I am of this little dog. This will be her 3rd time at the World Championships and she has qualified every time we tried out. Because of family commitments one year and money issues last year we were not able to try out every year, so it seems extra special now. Zen has done everything she could to help me get through this tough year; I am blessed by this little girl.

Today I will just enjoy the feeling and then tomorrow I will start thinking about how quickly the European Open is coming up in less than 2 weeks and how fast 2 months will fly by before the World champs. Yikes!

I am so psyched; I can't wait! (Thanks Jane Savoie!)

Beautiful job, Bernadette and Zen! whoo-hoo! yayyyy, a huge congratulations! I am so far behind and missed out on this wonderful news... Zen is one spectacular flyin' girl! I watched her run twice, each before the crack of dawn U.S. time at Krufts... and she was amazing, and this really crowns her the "golden girl"! I can't wait to see her win! win! win her Goooooooold at FCI! I'm not gonna be wanting any of my fellow Americans to get Gold in the medium division, hehehe! I am a very happy and enthused "traitor"....
