This title was a big deal for me.

When I first started Nose Work with my toy poodle Abby, I had wanted for her to reach this level. It was not to be, she became too old and had health problems, so could not compete. She passed over the rainbow bridge over a year ago. So, Annie took on Nose Work and Scent Work.

I will say when I took this photo, I really felt Little Abby's presence. I really think she was with us that day. There were other things that came out that day that Abby use to do or I did with her that helped us that day. Needless to say, it was emotional when I took this photo. On top of that, one of the judges (Bob Wierenga) who was the last judge for the day, had also been a judge for Little Abby when she was competing in NW3 years ago. When Bob gave me a high five after completing the last and final search successfully, it really meant a lot.

Thank you, Annie for making it all possible.

Annie Oakley, 13.5 yrs old. She got her 10th Master HD Elite Q 02-25-24 in Frankfort KY at  Michiana SW club. This is Annie's Master Handler Discrimination Elite Title. Also, 1st place. Not bad for a dog that just had Anal gland cancer surgery a little more than 2 months ago.
