Titles and recognition

Remember Joan Farnum's dog Zen? She sent us some pictures and more information about FAST CAT that they competed in this month. Here's what she had to say "Zen Earned his FCAT title this fall with a total of 1018.39 points. This is the third year in a row that he is AKC’s Fastest Bouiver! For the ACK Nationals, this is the first time they are including FASTCAT in their annual event. They used the AKC 2019 records for their invite list and Zen's top 3 highest speeds averaged 28.66 MPH. His fastest run ever was 29.14 MPH recorded in 2019. For 2020, his top 3 fastest average is 27.78 MPH, but at 6 years old, slowing down is natural. " Below is a picture of Zen and next month we will include an update on how Zen did! He looks quite proud of himself!

Vietnam Combat War Dog Monument

We came across an interesting new article about the Vietnam war dogs that saved so many lives with their heroic work! We are summarizing the article here however if you are interested in finding the article it is in the Standard- Examiner December 7th, 2020 paper. There is now a monument in the Layton commons park honoring our veteran dogs that saved us during the war by finding bombs to help keep our soldiers safe. In 2018 there was a monument made honoring the fallen soldiers from Vietnam however, the veterans wanted to recognize all of the K9 hero's that didn't make it back from Vietnam for one reason or another. Its amazing how loyal and brave companions our dogs can be for us and give up their lives to protect their handlers.
