Jill was given the nod for 4 points with two Best of Breeds, one of which was over a special.   In the summer of 2000 she enrolled beginner agility lessons with Dave Millmore at Euro Training Center.  In the fall, Bexar Regional Agility Team (BRAT) members helped and encouraged us on.  The "finishing touches" came under the expert coaching of Gerry Brown, DePaw Agility.  Jill finished her Master Agility Championship on February 14, 2004, four days after her 4th birthday.  How's that for being a Valentine Sweetheart!  It is nice that she was so talented and looked pretty doing it!

On November 18, 2000, Jill entered her first AKC agility trials at the Ft. Bend Kennel Club, Katy, TX.  At the same agility trials, same location on November 19, 2005, Jill earned her MACH 2 title to unoffically retire.  We are very proud of our girl!

We listened to Jill's protest against retirement and earned her MACH #3 title on November 10, 2007.  Jill retired just shy of 11 years old with 17 double Q's toward the MACH4.  Those triple jumps were getting difficult and it was decided she retire gracefully without injury and enjoy retirement.
