Having collected her Pearl award yesterday at the age of 12 Jodie is retiring from Flyball and Agility. She has been a wonderful dog to train, and compete with and in the last two months not only ran in the Kiddy Monsters team to get those last few points to take her over the 30,000 mark but also picked up a second at the Shrewsbury Agility show.

Jodie has won hundreds of classes and dozens of divisions. A few highlights have been;

Ran in Crufts Flyball Grand Final. Ran in numerous Crufts team finals and being in the winning Kidderminster team in 2010. Won an Agility Championship in 2008. Won Division 10, 15 and 21 at British Flyball Championships. Came 6th in European Flyball Championships in Belgium in 2009.

Kiddy Minsters travelled to Newark today for the Extreme racers BFA Flyball show. Seeded 6th in a very competitive division 3 we started with a heavy defeat against the top seeds who went on to beat all the other teams as well. Our fortunes changed in our second match as we put in some good team runs to get our first win of the day. We then maintained our seed time of 20.48 to win the remaining three matches to finish a very creditable second in the division.

The team were Louise & Stan, Laura & Marmite, Karen & Maddison, Emma & Sherlock with Stuart on box loading duties and Andy providing vocal support. During the racing Stan achieved his BFA Advanced award. Whilst in the post match presentations Jodie collected her BFA Pearl award for achieving 30,000 points. Well done to all who represented Kiddy today.
