 (Ch. Kybota Wildblue Rhythm  x  Ch. Korella Weave a Dream)

June 9, 2008--Chaney with about 1/5 of the ribbons she has won in her agility career along with her title plaque (not inc. her "Outstanding titles").  Titles still to achieve and put on there:  ECC, WV-E, HP-E, Elite Versatility Award, NATCH, AXJ, OF, XF, MX, MXJ, and MACH.  Magnets are not made for the NADAC  "Outstanding" and "Superior" titles.

I adopted Chaney (Skye's half-sister) from Wildblue Kennels in December 2004 when she was 15 months old and began agility training with her in July 2005.  In October 2005, we entered our first AKC trial.  Chaney has shown a great talent and excitement for agility.  When I adopted her, she was very shy and didn't have much of a personality, or a "sense of humor".  After she began agility training, she became a very loving pet, is very devoted, "smiles" all the time (especially when you ask her if she wants to play "agility"!), and loves to play with her Soft-Bite Frisbee and tug with her brother, Skye.  She's *solid muscle*... a real powerhouse, and our "busy bee" of the family!  She is constantly a "girl on a mission".

We got our Excellent Standard title on May 4, 2008 and her Novice FAST title on May 2nd.  I was so proud of my girl.  She ran a great trial!

It was a big day for my Border Collie kids on April 4, 2008-- Chaney got her first AKC Excellent Qualifying run in agility with a First Place finish in Excellent Jumpers With Weaves, and Skye got his first ever AKC competition Q-- this one in Novice  Rally Obedience!     Photo by Melia
