Here is a little video to commemorate Vista's journey to her Excellent titles. (the 3rd of 4 levels in AKC agility) Qualifying in Excellent requires a perfect or "clean" run. Most only share their clean runs; as those of you who have been to an agility trial know, runs with errors outnumber clean runs. In light of that, and Vista's fast rise through the levels Paula decided to show Excellent/Masters level adventures as they really are...
