Our graphic designer did an amazing job capturing Athena’s personality. The picture is from her doing a jump in a NADAC trial on a Jumpers course. Directly after this jump was a ring gate, which she proceeded to jump, kiss a guy in the stands, jump back into the ring, and finish her course… because we had a great judge. She shocked the audience in the whole room!
I have three different angles of the video as the whole audience did the, “Ooooh, gawd,” inhale, because she had such a reputation for not enjoying the company of strangers. We obviously didn’t Q, but this was one of the top ten best days of my life…
That morning, at the beginning of her first course she freaked when I yelled “BREAK” at the starting line and ran head first into the glass wall at the soccer dome… so hard people screamed! Her second run was the “visit to the audience” run. And her third run was a tunnelers course that she nailed and got her Q! I was so proud of her!
Her favorite thing to do in the world was agility. All her fears would fade. We even did the jumpers course during a storm, which would have normally sent her to the corner trembling. She could run by strangers because she wanted the next obstacle sooooo bad. She could even ignore the fact that the entire building was filled with dogs (which she admittedly thought should all fall off the face of the earth).
I can’t wait to watch everyone’s dogs blossom like she did. My only regret is that I didn’t finish the building years ago before I retired her. She would have never wanted to go home.
