K-9 School April graduates recognized
The K-9 Search One canine obedience course celebrated graduation day with exercises and skill contests held April 18 at the Holly Springs Fire Department.
Rita Stokes and K.C., of Byhalia, took Top Dog honors with high scores on the Speed Sit, Long Sit, and Musical Cones competitions, while Marleece Harrison and Pandora, of Lamar, finished first in the Quick Recall and multiple-challenge Course of Doom, and captured second-place wins in two other events.
Anna Miller and Rebel, of Red Banks, won first place in the serpentine exercise, a maneuverability challenge.
Three teams earned honorable mentions for their close second-place finishes: Pat Hannah and Taz of Byhalia, for the Course of Doom; Brittney House and Diezel, of Holly Springs, for Musical Cones; and Sally Scioneaux and Allie, of Byhalia, for the Long Sit exercise with distractions.
Special recognition went to Gerry Tomlin and Sadie, of Waterford, for “most-improved” dog, and to Bonnie Bynum and Charlie, visiting from Arkansas, for “fastest unplanned recall.”
The class will be offered to the public again in the fall.
