When Kathy met Don and Gaby Green's tri-colored Pembroke Welsh Corgi Bobbin while walking her dogs, it was love at first sight. After hearing Bobbin was a "bit of a handful", Kathy suggested letting her see if she liked Agility. This small but feisty Corgi enjoyed her first lesson and showed a keen desire to do more. Since their debut in the Agility ring, winning the first of many blue ribbons, Kathy and Bobbin enjoyed regular Agility adventures together.
Whether they were awarded a qualifying ribbon or not they always had fun. In training her first "mini" dog, Kathy has learned many of the finer points of running a small dog. Most importantly, she has learned that a small dog should be allowed to run as fast as his or her legs can carry them! Bobbin believed there was only one way to run an Agility course and that was at full throttle. She loved her food rewards and couldn't wait to get them.
Some of the highlights of Bobbin's Agility career have been qualifying for the USDAA Grand Prix of Dog Agility two years running and, thanks to her owners, Gaby and Don Green, having being able to visit the beautiful Del Mar Horse Park and enjoy the ambiance of the event as only a Corgi can. Bobbin also placed third in the 12" class in the Grand Prix Qualifier in July 2001.
