 You and Chellie have been a fantastic team over the years and an inspiration to all of us.   Enjoy your retirement Chellie, you deserve it!!

Marj and Chellie were one of the first teams I ever saw when I was first introduced to agility... they have been and always will be an inspiration.  I aspire to have a relationship like that with my own pups some day...

I hope Chellie all the best and lots of treats in her retirement.

Marj and Chellie!!!! what a wonderful inspiration you two have been for everyone.  I was met you and saw you 2 year ago at Monmouth Oregon with  Chellie.  It was just plain amazing to watch the two of you.  A great team, indeed.  Thank you Chellie,  for letting me say hello to you and greet you at this years WAG trial in Oregon.  Your retirement is SOOO WELL deserved.  Enjoy life and look after your mom!

Jack the Scottie and I started doing agility out in Nevada 6 years ago and I was So Lucky to have had the opportunity to watch Marj and Chellie at the trials out there.  She was just about the only one doing distance work out there at that time, and seeing them complete those courses--no shouting or exaggerated antics, just true teamwork--well, it was just beautiful to watch.  I'm so grateful I got to see them work together and to have had such good role models for what agility could and should be.  Wishing you both all the best.

Thank you to everyone for posting such endearing and kind messages.  I will never forget that you took the time to share Chellie's retirement with me.
I am sure most of you know how difficult it is to see your loving and faithful partner deferring to age.  But it comes to all of us...even us...the humans.  However, other than the aging process Chellie is one very happy girl.  Her vast accomplishments on the course mean nothing to her and most of what she accomplished had nothing to do with me.  I just kind of danced with her and she was the leader!!

Chellie never sustained an injury doing agility...thanks to NADAC!  Can we be any more blessed than to have a venue like NADAC that emphasises safety for our pups.

Thanks again to all of you!!  You are all PERFECT!!

Marj, you and Chelle have been such a big part of the sport of agility here on the west coast and ambassadors for the bonus program.  As a team the two of you accomplished much and were always so gracious about your successes.   We will miss watching the two of you together, but I am sure Chelle will enjoy her retirement.

Dear Marj and Chelle,
You two exemplified what it meant to run agility as a TEAM... full of love, connection, and teamwork.  I was always in awe watching you two run... I swore Chelle could read Marj's mind   ;D

Enjoy your retirement, Chelle...  you've earned your time of rest, and teaching the youngsters a thing or two (or three).

Marj and Chellie are our heroes. Marj was so encouraging of me and Beatrix when we started doing bonus lines. I am in complete awe of Marj as an athlete and as a wonderful warm-hearted person who always has encouraging words. All my best to Chellie who will enjoy her retirement with her most cherished human.

What an amazing journey Marj and Chellie have had. I feel privileged to have watched this highly decorated team at many, many trials over the past 10 years that I have been doing agility. From a fantastic team, to a mind-blowing team when they started distance and where we swore Chellie was just out there reading the numbers. And after each and every run, success or not, seeing Marj tussle with Chellie, and Chellie SO happy with herself, and the adoring look on both of their faces is just priceless.

How fortunate that Marj can retire Chellie healthy and sound. It's Chellie's time now to lay in the sun and bask in the glory of their accomplishments, and let the young pups tear it up on the course.
