I am so very proud of Squiggle, who was awarded the Dianne Atkins Award for the highest overall achievement in canine competition. Squiggle has amassed 5 performance titles this year despite having had a significant amount of time off while raising a litter. She has come back with a vengeance and has really blown the chicken nugget budget since she came home! Chicken nuggets are somewhat of a delicacy for Team Pawformance and are a special treat they get for earning a title (they get a soft-serve cone for a quallie or an extra good ring run out).
I am so blessed to have such a great partner in the sporting arena and I hope this is the start of many fun years to come!
As always, a huge, huge thank you to Squiggle's breeder and co-owner, Jacq at Armahani for entrusting me with our beautiful girl. This trophy is even more special not only because it's namesake, Dianne has always been a big help in Squiggle's training, but because Nik won it in 2011 with one of the original Pawformance Dogs, Jedi so I'm very happy that we've carried on the Pawformance tradition.
