Teaka (our school therapy dog) and Lori (staff) just finished a 3 day AKC agility trial in Proctor. It was well attended by a bunch of great competitors. Teaka, our 8.9 year old golden, had a stellar weekend. She had a perfect 3 days with 11/11 Qs (qualifying runs) while finishing her Time to Beat title and acquiring 3 double Qs. She had several first and second placements as well. It's not always being the fastest team out there isn't but sometimes steady with accuracy wins the race.

I just learned today that if I post to Instagram it crops the pictures into squares instead of showing the full thing. This is the wide-screen version of the Friday staff picture. We didn't have the full crew available so we'll try again at a future date.
