You Go Girls! Barb & Olivia...

I got this email from Olivia's mom, Barb Miller, on Saturday...

"Olivia earned herself a new herding title today! We went to an AHBA trial where we train and she earned her JHD (I think) with flying colors! Her first run was really nice and the judge's comment was "Cool Dog!" Hee,hee! I didn't stay for ribbons (it was freezing!) so I don't know what the second judge (my teacher....) had to say.
JHD is the equivalent of AKC's PT title. It's a pass/fail herding test. I agree - cool dog!"

Then we got the update yesterday...

"We had a good time at the USDAA agility trial - glad we weren't herding outside today!!!!! Olivia got her first Master's Q - in Snooker. We left early to try and beat the bad weather home."

I so give you performance people loads of credit to go out and "do your thing" no matter what Mother Nature has in store for us. Personally, I am too much of a wimp.

My hat is off to you Barb for everything you have done with the "Little Girl"!
