Brodie is pictured above at two years of age and below at ten years of age. He just continues to get better and better.
At the CC&SSA Specialty on March 6, 2011, Brodie was awarded the only Award of Merit, from the Veteran's class. The judge couldn't say enough wonderful things about him. He was handled to this win by 14 year old Samantha Taylor, our junior handler. Sam won Best Overall Junior the day before with Brodie at the Junior's competition at the DC&SSA specialty.
A multi Best Puppy in Group winner, Brodie earned his CKC championship as a puppy finishing with a BOS over 6 male specials. He continues to win in the agility ring and is presently working on AAC titles.
I agreed to let pet owner(she had an unregistered female and her husband had just purchased a male on a pet contract ) take Brodie strictly to train and trial in agiliy since she was teaching but had never actually trained a dog of her own. He was with her for approximately three years . While at the Grey Bruce show many people noticed he could barely walk and yet was in the agility ring. When this newcomer complained in front of a number of people,that he was "slowing down" I took the opportunity to remove him from her without causing too much embarrassment. A thorough vet assessment revealed inflammation in all joints on the left side and soft tissue damage on the left side. His left eye was bulging out of the socket and several teeth were missing in the front and left side of his mouth. When asked, the newcomer denied any knowledge of any "accident" It took a year for Brodie to heal enough for me to start retraining him for agility. He now works well away from me, does all the equipment without hesitation and his speed and bounce have returned. People who now see him with me in the agility ring (AAC) can't believe it's the same dog.
Brodie is now nearing 13 years of age and is still an active and entertaining fellow. He still enjoys agility but we only play at it now having short practice sessions in the backyard. As a reward, he gets to play his favourite game: fetching anything that can be thrown for him.
At 14 1/2 years of age, our sweet boy left us to join his sister at the Rainbow Bridge. Rest well sweet boy... we miss your terribly.
