Ash and Luka: Gold!

SUMMARY: World Championships!
For those who've missed it, Ashley Deacon and Luka the Pyrenean Shepherd are Individual Medium Dogs FCI World Champions! Gold medalists!

That's on a combined score from both the Jumpers and the Standard runs.

SO exciting that a fellow Bay Teamer, sometime classmate, and friend, is there! Congratulations to someone who works as hard as anyone else I know at his success, and at keeping his dogs happy and enthusiastic at all times. Ash has a great attitude on top of everything else. Plus, long legs.

Also interesting is that, even though the scores combined two runs, my understanding is that mere hundredths of a second separated the three top finishers.

And even more interesting than that is that the top three are all Pyrenean Shepherds! No Shelties, no smallish Border Collies.

Woooohoooo I am happy tonight!
