Start to finish, 2009 has been a banner year for ZDD.
- The team grew a little, adding some new furkids with existing members and adding some friend's dogs (Maverick, Shimmy, Micah, Lyric)
- As a team we set some new personal bests in the racing lanes, thanks to our own great dogs and handlers, and with the help of our wonderful friends Elva and Skorch. Zippity new PBT's in Regular: 19.47 (B/O) and in Open: 18.71
- There were some great individual accomplishments also
- Fiesta achieved her ONYX award at the tender age of 12 years old, and was able to retire with a smile on her face and on her Mom's face
- Annie achieved her FDMCh award at the age of 10 years, but had to retire due to a chronic sore shoulder
- Shimmy achieved her FMX award in her first tournament with us!
- Ponder, the Aussie that wasn't supposed to play flyball did and became an FD!! Way to go girlie!!
- Willie finished both his FM and FMX titles, so now Chris call parade his Willie around with pride and exclaim "I'm an excellent master of my Willie" and truly mean it!
- Rue finished her FM title and is well on her way to an FMX
- ZDD helped Elva and Skorch achieve her 50,000 points this summer! Yay Skorchie!!
- Avery made her successful debut with us and held it together well! Chris can be proud of something other than his Willie for once
- All of our other pups are within licking distance of their next titles!
- Chris' inflatable couch got a good workout this summer ;-)
- We're looking forward to the debut of Mason, and Epic in the racing lanes in 2010
