She earned her Certificate of Gameness in Earth Dog trials, winning 1st place with the fastest time of over 55 entries.


She was a wonderful tracker and was preparing to be certified at the time of her retirement. She once directly tracked her cat, Simon, who had escaped, and found him 2 fields away, hiding under a tree.


She earned her Canine Good Citizen with no problem, and was also a registered Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs International. She visited schools and nursing homes, giving obedience demonstrations.
