Bronze Dog

SUMMARY: Tika's Lifetime Achievement Award (LAA).
Some nice friends brought it back for me from Scottsdale; this represents 150 lifetime Masters and Tournament Qs. This sucka's heavy! Not sure how I'm going to hang it on the wall.

I think Tika is now at 224 lifetime Qs; the Silver LAA requires 250.

Dang injured foot--USDAA trial in less than 2 weeks with a chance to earn more.

Guess I can't take her to the vet to be x-rayed tomorrow, since I'll be at the Trkman seminar. Tuesday, then.


  1. That's beautiful! What a huge accomplishment!!!

    Have fun at the seminar...I sure hope Tika's foots OK. Once JoJo had a dislocated toe, and two vets couldn't find it. Would be fine, then all of a sudden be lame. I had to demand the x-rays after three visits to three vets. They relocated the toe and he had four weeks leash rest to be sure. Never happened again.

  2. I'm dreading the 4 weeks rest, because I suspect that'll be the requirement no matter what it is. Unless they find something absurdly simple. I'm inclined to just ask for an x-ray tomorrow when we see the vet.
