K-9 school October graduates recognized
The K-9 Search One canine obedience course celebrated graduation day with exercises and skill contests held October 24 at the Holly Springs Fire Department.
Marleece Harrison and Gracie (a Weimaraner) of Lamar, took Top Dog honors with high scores on the Longest Sit, Quickest Recall, and the multiple-challenge Course of Doom.
Mike Wickel and Pepper (a blue heeler) of Byhalia, won first place in the Serpentine exercise, a maneuverability challenge. Gerry Tomlin and Sadie (an Australian shepherd) of Waterford, won honors for the Fast Sit; and Sara Brown and Jackson (a German shepherd) of Potts Camp, earned honorable mention for their close second-place finish in the Recall competition.
Three puppies less than one year old earned the special distinction of being among the first nationwide to be awarded certification in the American Kennel Club’s S.T.A.R. Puppy program: Marleece Harrison and Gracie, Andrea Hurdle and Luca (a Great Pyrenees) of Holly Springs, and Rita Warren and Ginger (a beagle mix) of Saulsbury.
The class will be offered to the public again in the spring.
