"Never Make It FCh, CD, NA, NAJ" aka Jes is gone, but never forgotten. Jes washed out in schooling races before the age of 2. Her official NGA name really is "Never Make It." She is what I lovingly call my Screw-Up-Dog. She has endured my mistakes, been trained, and retrained over and over again.
I am very thankful for all the learning experience she gave me. She has taught me so much. Despite all my errors, she did manage to compete in AKC Obedience and earn her Companion Dog title as well as the Canine Good Citizen. We also trained for and competed in agility, earning both Novice Agility titles. She was also a Field Champion lure courser. The little girl destined to "never make it" seems to have made it after all. My kennel name, "Never Say Never Greyhounds," is named after her.
I miss you, Jessie.
