A big thank you to nadac
« on: September 18, 2013, 08:48:11 AM »
This past weekend I deceided to retire my saint Panda. She only needed one more Q for another title. No she did not get it but she does not know that only me.
She will be 7 in a couple of weeks and that is getting old for a saint. She was my 5th saint to do agility. The word got around that this was her last run. The crowd
all clapped and cheered for her and brought tears to my eyes. What a great group.
Panda ended her career with 24 titles and two gold medals in weight pulling.
But I have another saint I am working with and hope to be ready in spring to get back to the nadac trails. Again thank you all for the great last moment.

Congratulations Ray & Panda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  AWESOME achievements......................and then there is all of the titles and awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Your young'un has an AWESOME mentor.............and I'm sure that Panda will offer her experience and insight to help with your training of "Da Kid".................

Here's hoping that Panda enjoys her retirement; but that you still let her play with the agility toys that she likes, at the yard....................

Based on my experiences with my aging BC kids, still being able to play the game once in a while at home...............with EVERYTHING customized for their enjoyment, REALLY helps to keep them young!!!!!!!

Many hugs for both you and Panda.................

Ray, I am so glad I was there to cheer Panda on for her last Tunnelers run.  You weren't the only one with tears...

It was great to see you and Panda running on Friday night, Ray.  She's still in the game, and enjoyed every tunnel on that course!  Happy retirement, Panda.

I get tears while reading.

A crucial moment and awesome when you make that decision when the dog is still really good.

Respect!  ;)

Happy retirement!
