Lucky Shirt

I have an agility friend, Jean Lavalley, that also runs a dog named Seven.  Her Seven is a black and white sheltie.  Jean has been running agility with her Seven for a few more years than I have and in that time, she has acquired quite a collection of shirts and jerseys with the number seven on them.  At trials, Jean would tease me about starting my own collection.  She finally got tired of waiting and brought me several shirts from her collection to our last agility trial. 

So on Sunday, I wore my favorite of the shirts she gave me.  This was Seven's first time in both Excellent B classes (Remember that Excellent B is the highest level for American Kennel Club agility and it is where we need to be to start earnings points and double qualifying scores towards the Master Agility Championship.) and Seven double qualified for the first time. 
Thank you for the lucky shirt, Jean!  If it continues to work, it might become my agility trial uniform.

Seven's Master Agility Championship - 1 Double Q, 19 to go.  49 MACH points, 701 to go.

7 is looking so fantastic and now she can be styling after she shows off her athleticism.

Seven is well on her way towards the MAC. I think Seven should get a matching racing/agility silk to match your lucky shirt

Aww! I love the idea of starting a number 7 collection! I am so glad I follow your blog sometimes because I can't believe how complicated all the points and titles and blahhhh is to read through in AKC language, hah.

Wow how brilliant many congratulations to you and Seven. Doesn't matter how often I watch your video's I am really amazed at what you can teach greyhounds to do. Mine have always been couch potatoes. Did you start them young. All my greys have been rescued ex racers and probably think they it would take to much energy LOL.
