Update: “we ran clear in that one with her doing everything perfectly and it was good enough to win the Masters Agility class at the 2nd BC National! Onya Rave! And on your 9th birthday too! How cool is that?” “This was just amazing…and all on Raven’s 9th birthday. A dog currently in remission from Canine Lymphoma and still receiving chemo.
