SO SO proud of this special girl. Never dreamed we’d have one MACH let alone two! She gives me everything she has every time we run and we are still learning and always having so much fun. Life has been a little hectic this past year but running and playing agility with her is pure joy. Even when she's being silly and flies of the a frame or dog walk (just to make me laugh I’m sure ) So thankful for her!"
