Dog of the Month

For July's dog of the month we've decided to do something just a little bit different. This month, our special little guy/gal is not a club dog. Instead, we'd like to draw your attention to this little gal!
Chi is a mixed breed youngster who was in the River Runner's last set of puppy classes. Always a pleasure to work with, Chi has amazing focus for a puppy. The little girl is fabulous! At the beginning of the six week course Chi was not too fond of tennis balls... but running and jumping? That was her cup of tea! On graduation night we decided to see if the puppies would work away from their handlers and asked that the dogs be sent over one jump to the chute to grab a ball before returning back over the jump. Miss I-Don't-Like-Balls fired away from mom, grabbed her tennis ball, and fired right back! It became quite clear that after only six weeks, Chi knew the game. Her ability to think and work make her an exceptional youngster who will (hopefully!) be a FANTASTIC flyball dog one day!
