From a shelter in Iowa

We did it!  Legend got the last of the points needed to qualify for AKC nationals this year.  This is my first time attending this event.  I'm so proud of my girl.  I never really considered that she might qualify for national events in two venues in one year, but...here we go!  In two weeks to NADAC championships in Illinois and in the spring to AKC nationals in Reno.  For that one we are taking extra time off and making it a sight-seeing cross-country adventure.  If she finishes her MACH this year it's just icing on the cake!

And to think, all this from a little dog left at a shelter when she was just 5 months old.  Her whole life, if she was even going to get the chance to have one, hung in the balance until rescue came along to get her.   Adopting Legend didn't just save her life, it also changed mine.  So if you're wondering where to get your next dog, why not make a life-altering choice?  Adopt.

That's awesome! Glad your Iowa girl is sharing such a wonderful life with you. Bet she's a (Iowa State) Cyclone at heart. ( :

I might be a TEENY bit biased, but I think rescue dogs make the best agility dogs. Legand looked fantastic this weekend, and I loved the opportunity to sit next to someone and say "see that dog running now? He is a rescue"
Between your great runs and delivering the red dog to a new home, it was a great rescue weekend!
