This year, for the first time, the AKC is having an Agility Invitational. They've invited the top 5 dogs of each breed, plus the top dogs from some other countries, to compete in Long Beach, CA. If any of the top 5 dogs don't want to go, they invite the next dog on the list.
Apparently, one of the top 5 SBTs didn't choose to go, because today, the #6 SBT received an invitation. We're going to Long Beach! Woo-hoo!
What a great cap for the old man's career! My poor girls will have to be boarded, and I'll be solid broke when it's done, but my boy is going to the Invitational!
