This is SO cool, I had to share it. They are an inspiration to all of us "over 50" :)

The dog handler with the white hair will be 90!! in December. The dog just turned 10. They became "team mates" about 10 years ago ... and since then finished their CD and NA, NAJ ... and some other agility titles.

Very nice to see that. You can do anything you want, you just have to put your mind to it! Thanks for sharing.

I believe Rachel Page Elliott competed in agility until the last year or so of her life. She died at 96.

That's AWESOME! Thanks for sharing. We had our local trial this past weekend. We offered a "RUN FOR GLORY" for veteran dogs or dogs no longer to compete due to injury, etc. We had 27 dogs enter and almost all ran including 16 year old Weim. So many inspirational stories. The two GSPs were ours both 12 1/2. Fun to see the seniors "jump" the bars on the ground.

Martha, a local club here also had one of those a couple of weeks ago. A friend ran her 11-yr old MACH, now nearly blind from PRA ... she followed the voice commands, but you could see the dog had a rockin' good time working with her mom again.
