Top Spots for Agility 2009

I'm so proud to report that Tess has once again been named one of the Dalmatian Club of America's Top Spots for Agility for competition during 2009!!

This year -- drumroll, please -- Tess was ranked #1 in Open Standard and #9 in both Excellent A Standard and Excellent A Jumpers with Weaves. This is for AKC competition only and does not include her many accomplishments in CPE, USDAA, and NADAC.

Big congratulations to Tess and her awesome handler, Jim!! These two embody all that agility should be...building a relationship with your dog and having FUN. Tess and Jim continue to grow as a team and we look forward to their continued success in 2010!


  1. Big congrats to Jim and Tess!! Peyton is kinda mad that he got beat by a *girl*, but says he's glad it's one of his very favorite spotty girls. :)

  2. WOW! Way to go Jim and Tess. A huge congratulations to you both. You two are quite a team. I am so proud to know I had just a teeny weeny part in putting the two of you together. I am also proud to be Tess' surrogate grandma.

  3. That is such great news, Lisa. You ALL had a great 2009. I know how proud you are of your girls ( and JIM, too!!)
