IDTC BRAGSDebbie Bell—Tavari earned his Senior Courser title at Wine Country as well as 2 points toward his AKC Lure FieldChampionship.Brenda Finnicum—I would like to share this brag. Mace, my 8 year old rottweiler, passed his Variable Surface Trackingtest yesterday in Wheaton, Illinois. The test was given by the Medallion Rottweiler Club. This pass earns himthe title of Champion Tracker (CT). He finished the track in under 20 minutes. If you know Mace, you knowhe likes to do every thing fast.This title is all the more special, as Mace has been battling lymphoma, which was diagnosed lastyear. After 9 months of chemo, I was not sure he would be able to return to his many "jobs" but in March hestarted back to agility and tracking. While this accomplishment is wonderful, felt blessed just to have him atmy side with his famous "smile".His last article was a heavy woolen sock, which he refused to give to anyone, except his Mama.Joan Shaw—Kind of a weird brag but my little Min Pin "Victor" will be starring as "Bruiser" in the upcoming musical"Legally Blonde" at the Hoerner Theatre at Ithaca College.
