Meet Cathy and Joel Aragon's Champion Welsh Terrier
MACH5 "Ziba"



Here's what Cathy says about Ziba. Back in March, Ziba was kidnapped by my husband, Joel, after a renewed interest in agility. Being a goal driven person, he wanted a MACH, and he wanted to qualify for the AKC National Invitational. I decided to be the Agility Support Spouse (A.S.S.) in this endeavor, and only ran Ziba when there was no QQ on the line. Joel and Ziba ran wonder-fully together, and they put together fourteen QQ's between mid-March and the end of June, which is also the end of the Invitational qualifying period. Those were enough to complete Ziba's MACH on June 22nd in Monroe. Woo hoo!

As for the Invitational, Ziba racked up 925 points during the year, landing her in 6th place among the nation's Welsh Terriers, but only five dogs get The invite. She was just five points behind the number five dog and eleven points behind the number four dog. It was a heart-breaker! There will be no trip to Orlando for Ziba this year, but we'll get 'em next year! Joel and I will be 'sharing' Ziba going forward, and I'm very happy that my husband is enjoying agility! Ziba earned her 2nd and 3rd MACH in 2014. Ziba earned her 4th MACH in January 2015 and her MACH5 at the May 2015 Sno-King trial! What a way to start the year. Go Ziba!
