Kim McNeill's Devon & his daughter, Spy-C did very well in agility. "So, we had AH-mazing AH-gilities this weekend. The crowd cheered as I ran my last few runs on Sunday. For some reason the cheering wasn't quite as much on Saturday. That's because you pretty much ran a muck on Saturday. You need to listen to your momma and dance with the one who brought ya."

"But it's so exciting and sometimes the ring cannot hold my AH-mazingness. But I got 6 ribbons and a new jumpers title. Three of them red, my best color."

"yes, Devon, you did have some very nice runs on Sunday. One of them missed the ribbons by less than one second. And Spy-C also ran and she obviously inherited my AH-mazingness. Yes, Devon, she rather surpassed you."

"Which makes me even more AH-mazing."
