Congratulations to Reegan Ray and Pip, from California, who have really made history over there. Megafantabulous!
"We did it...AKC approved the Boxer to trial in AKC herding events at the first of the year, after 5 long years of campaigning for the right, and Pip got the 1st AKC herding title on a Boxer at the trial level yesterday. It was for "A Course Started" and she worked her little heart out. We did not get in the placements for ribbons, but we were competing against very nice border collies (it was a trial put on by the Los Angeles Border Collie Club), but we completed the course with 86 points out of 100, which is very respectable and I am quite proud of my little red thing. So, she qualified quite nicely. I traveled a good long distance to attend this trial, after qualifying in two other trials where we train, and was especially proud she handled the new conditions and the cold and wind. Mary and Jackie...I think having trialed Pip in that crazy weather in Washington, something we never get here, helped a lot!
