Sprite began training in agility when he was 8 months old. I had never heard of agility before but was drawn into it by Sandy McDonald who was already competing with Sprite's half brother, Kip. We made lots of mistakes in the beginning but in spite of that, Sprite has matured into a wonderful agility partner. We do not trial a lot but we qualify frequently.
Sprite is 10 years old now and while he is now in a shorter coat, he is happy, healthy and active. In fact he finished his MACH in Nov, 2011! Sprite is always fun and is everyone's best friend.
