Age is just a number!

We're sooooo proud of Sasha's daughter Mila ( M-OTCH Szuni's Shooting Star CD CDX UD FDJ FD FDX TD AGN AGI AGDC AADC CGC.  At the "young" age of 11 dog years, Mila burned up the agility course at the AAC's (Agility Assoc. of Canada) 2010 Nationals held in Calgary, AB on August 7 & 8, 2010. Don't let the white on Mila fool you! She's still capable of showing up the younger dogs.  Her owner, Susan Scobie, of Vancouver, BC took the trip to the Natinals "just to have fun on a final agility fling”.  Well, the event turned into a bigger ribbon haul than ever expected!  

On Sat, in their 3 runs, Mila placed 5, 6, and 37 out of 45 dogs in the Double Drop Veteran group.  On Sunday, they placed 2, 3 and 13th!  Mila & Sue's overall placing was #7 which got them to the foot of the podium.  Below Susan's sister helps with all the rosettes this dream team won.

 In Susan's words, "Mila, what a dog – and isn’t she just the cutest?   Being on her team has been such a blast for the past 11 years!  Thanks yet again, Mila!" And of course, we can't be any prouder because she's one of our beloved Sasha's kids. I know he's wagging his tail furiously in doggie heaven, thrilled with her latest accomplishment.  HUGE congratulations to Susan and especially MILA!!!
