Well, after 25+ years of showing dogs, I now have a dog with an AKC title at both ends. Dash, at the ripe old age of 10.5, is now CH Van Gunn’s Kickin’ It Up RN.

Dash finishes his RN

Dash was always a dog who loved to show, and he was so happy to be back in the show ring. He earned his 3rd RN leg with a score of 96 at the all Terrier Trial in Kimberton last week. He got up on the Sit-Walk-Around, which cost us 3 points for the do-over, but otherwise he was great. And, like in his other 2 trials, people commented on how HAPPY he was to be working.

Dash’s arthritis will keep him out of AKC Rally Advanced because he can’t jump. But, since he had SUCH a good time, we may look into competing in APDT, or maybe trying for the new AKC Beginner Novice obedience title.

Here are some pictures of the happy boy in the ring.
