Cybele and Baxter Armen.

New Titles & Kudos, in as much as many events, but for some outdoors, a few indoors, & those that have not gone online/virtual, have been cancelled.

Natalie Culver's Jasper and Ivy each got their first AKC Rally Novice Qs! Pickwick's Apu Keep on Dancing JC TKN JOR and Pickwick's Apu Miss Kitty's Can-Can Girl JC TKN.

Kim McNeill - Congratulations to Devon who finished up the year as NADAC's one and only ranked Silken. I think his runs consisted of one actual trial in Feb and one virtual run.

Clearly this dog is in a class unto himself.

The Stewart's Alita - FC Meisterhaus The Next Level SC TKP CCF1 PD. Both Alita and Thena got some more breed points, too.

Wendy Hodges - A last minute trip to OKC for Barn Hunt proved successful. Winger came home with a Crazy 8s Silver medal and her RATCHX3. Mr. Busy Bee Trace earned his Novice title and, even better, didn’t pee on any hay bales for a double bonus!!

Renee Meriaux"s Zuko earned his HT. Eli qualified in one out of two runs.
Mosley qualified in both runs earning 2nd, Highest scoring BMD in the first trial and Highest scoring BMD in the 2nd trial. Both together were good enough to earn high combined BMD!! This completed her started title. She is now a BMDCA Working Dog Excellent!!!

Karen Christensen's Tutu was still racing full LGRA meets on nice fall days in 2020! And, she brags, her kid, Rip, was the #3 basenji in LGRA this year! Mostly because she “let” him go on ahead after she beat him out of the box time after time!
