Hi All,
Last weekend was the delayed celebration for my MACH. I needed to get dressed for the big event, so I wore my NEW MACH collar and leash made by Becky Hall (Karlie Bug K9 Kloset).

Then much to my surprise – was a MACH cake with my name on it. Cake was a gift from the Halls :TYou

I knew it was rude to take food off a table so I just smelled it.

Then I thought – people sometimes take a little bit of the frosting from the edges of their cakes, so maybe I could do the same thing. Who would know???

This is a big cake and I shared it with many doggies at the agility trial. I wish I could have sent some to my east coast friends, especially NEW MACH Cocker, Andy Boy; and to my long-time supporter and soon to be MACH Cocker, Star.

Of course Rosey got some cake. I told her it could be her birthday cake. She turned 12 years old.

And the day just kept getting better! I earned the High Scoring Cocker award for the 12" Master class. I don't often win things like this because I'm not very fast (especially with a 110 degree heat index) but this weekend running clean and not fast was good enough.

Mom thinks the cocker on the teeter looks like me.

Glad to see that the "Solo Rocks Mach" moniker has stuck! He looks so patient, waiting for his cake.

I LOVE :love that cocker on the teeter! Was it hand-made, or can it be purchased from somewhere?
I would definitely buy one. God knows Gromit will never earn her Mach, since we only compete a few times a year, but we still enjoy going to the classes every week.

Yes Solo was very patient. He is a good boy :love .

The dog on the teeter was made by Yvonne Badoni of showdogart.com
She makes lots of awards for dog shows. Below are photos of the other types of agility, breed, and obedience ones she made for WCCSC.
