Hi everybody,

I have posted a little on here, but thought I would formaly introduce myslef. :)

My name is Gabby I am 16, and I have a Border Collie that just turned 2 years old yesterday. Her name is Athena, and we compete in NADAC Agility. We are really enjoying the distance challenge of NADAC. She is training for bonus lines. We also enjoy trick training, competition obedience, flyball, and are training for some musical freestyle. A little bit of everything. ;)

I also have a German Shepherd named Abigail (a Belguim import) who is my old girl and the one that got me started with dog training. She is almost 9, and such a joy! I also enjoyed Schutzhund for awhile with my dad who has a Malinois, but then I switched over to Border Collies and Agility.

Hopefully soon I hope to get her started on Sheep!

I look forward to chatting with you all. :)

Welcome! Love your diversity. You learn so much partaking in so many different venues.
Love your dog. But I for one would love to see a pic of your old girl as well.
