Penny's C-ATCH Achievement!

Good morning,

I have a great big brag about our Yellow Labrador Retriever, Penny.  In addition to competing in American Kennel Club agility trials, Penny and Catherine (her handler/our daughter) compete in Canine Performance Events (CPE Events).  Penny recently completed her C-ATCH (Canine Performance Events - Agility Trial Champion) title!  She is already a champion to us and now she is to the rest of the world, too.  The big woven blanket in the image above was a gift to Catherine from her friend Erica who shows her dogs, too.  The graphics for the blanket are from a picture My Honey took of Penny at one of the trials.
Here is Penny's ribbon.  :))))))  <-- very proud "Mom"
And, this is also part of the award.  It is an autographed "bar" trophy from a dog jump. 
 We are all so proud of Penny and Catherine.

All the best,
Lois
