The qualification period runs from July 1, 2012 through June 30th, 2013 (odd, yes), and if you remember, last summer Jimmy had his iliopsoas strain and didn't compete in July, August, or September. We did a few trials in Oct/Nov, then started back up again this past March. Definitely not something that would qualify as trialing a lot. So when I found Jimmy's name on the list of the Top 25 Cardigan Welsh Corgis, I was pretty tickled!

Of course, it's possible there are only 26 Cardigans doing agility which would burst my bubble a bit, but I bet that's not the case!
While I'm at it, my hat is off to the the top 5 dogs/handlers on the list. At #1 is Susan Stephon, she's been on the list several years now, 2nd and 3rd places are the same gal, Carrie Ruhde, also a repeat invitee, 4th, 5th and 6th belong to Joanna McKim, yes, another repeat invitee. These women ROCK! As do their dogs!
Have a great weekend, Everyone!
