3/3/04: Update on Jet's Titles:

Update 12/6/04:
. . . Jetson and I continue to do well. . . . He has earned his outstanding standard elite (10 runs), now we need jumpers and gamblers runs.  When we get 10 each in those categories, we will earn our championship (NATCH).  Our last trial was one of our best of recent.  . . . I ran Jetson 4 times and my pyrenean shepherd (it was her second trial) 4 times.  Together we got 7 qualifying runs and 7 first places (Jet got 4 of those)!  Home to celebrate after that!

Wishing you a very happy holiday season.

Update 8/24/04:
Hi Tina.
Just wanted to let you know that Jetson and I got High (Aussie) in Trial at the Surrey BC NADAC agility trial.  Here are a couple of pictures . . . Look at that big fat ribbon!

Update from Karin June 1, 2004:
Jet and I had a nice trial this weekend.  We qualified twice out of six runs both in excellent level.  We are working on our advanced excellent titles the MX and the AXJ (then followed by the MXJ).  At the same time we are getting points for our MACH . . . which requires 750 points (one point for every second under time) and 20 double Qs, qualifying in both standard and jumpers in the same day. . .

The photo says why we do it.  I had no idea that I run with a smile like that.  Good thing because it is a blast.  People love to watch Jetson because it is obvious that he is having the time of his life.  That is a smile on his face too.

UPDATE from Karin:  March 22, 2004:
Jetson earned his AKC Agility Excellent (AX) and Open Jumpers (OAJ) and his NADAC elite jumpers (EJC), open agility (OAC) and open gamblers (OGC) certificates.  Sooooo . . . means he is competing at the AKC excellent and NADAC elite in all categories listed above.

He is a great agility dog . . .   He's awesome as you've heard me say a million times.  He is over the top too when it comes to agility.  Just loves it.

We will head out to California at the end of April for an agility camp for 4 days.  I wonder if he will get his fill?  I doubt it.

Jetson's owner writes:

"Who would have known?  Jet is a mellow, easygoing dog at home, and the last one out of the bedroom in the morning.  But get him to an agility trial, he gets a twinkle in his eye and just turns on in focus and energy.  I swear it is something in his genes because from the very first day he excelled at agility.  He just gets it and he is very fast if not a bit reckless right now.  You'll notice in the photo that there is only one blue ribbon.  What you learn quickly in agility is that 95% of the mistakes are due to handler error.  Jet would definitely have more blues, unfortunately he is stuck with a sort of challenged handler...me!  I do not have agility in the genes, but I'm working hard on it.  We have one more leg in each of standard agility and jumpers with weaves to get our novice AKC title.  Wish us luck."

"Rob and I keep marveling over what a super guy our Jet is.  He is so fun, loves toys, loves to snuggle, is quite a talker (not a barker), and just keeps us laughing.  He is excellent on the trails, has great recall, and feels it is his duty stay close to me.  Know that you have one success out here in Gig Harbor."
