Roper.........the Agility Bully!
by Lorri Griffin
Roper with her AKC Titles!
Roper is now 4 1/2 years old. I rescued her at 5 weeks. She was infested with worms and knocking on deaths door. With a lot of care and my good vet, she pulled through.
I started taking Roper to puppy class at 12 weeks old to socialize her. She really needed it because she was timid and fearful of other dogs. She loved the end of class where they were able to run through tunnels and go over small jumps. Seeing her love for this, I switched her to Agility classes. She has been enrolled in classes ever since.
To this day, Roper has won 10 different titles in CPE, AKC and NADAC. She competed at the CPE Nationals this year and won a 1st, 2nd and two 4th places. She is now competing at the Excellent level in AKC and doing well.
I love competing with a Bully among all the Border collies and other popular herding breeds. Roper loves everyone, human or dog and has done well representing the Bully breed.
She loves jumping, but is also the biggest couch potato I know. Her favorite position is four feet in the air. There is something about this dog.....she has a huge place in my heart and I cherish every minute we have together. I will always have a Bully by my side.
Our next step together is getting certified as a Therapy dog. Then she will come to work with me at the Cancer Center to visit with my patients.
