Biography:  Toby came into my life by accident. It was while surfing the internet I came across his cute face. I instantly ran out the door to meet him, and the next day I took him home. He's been an amazing animal. I can't say enough about what he means to me.

He has a face many have said they do not forget. He can put a smile on the faces of those he meets. People have commented that he is the happiest dog they have ever seen. He is full of energy and has a strong will to please.

This wild child has grown to love agility. He is currently having a blast running NADAC. He has made an appearance on the AKC circuit, where he has completed his 20" Open Standard and Jumpers with Weaves titles. Because his mother is such a green handler, Toby has been making his way up through the Preferred level. He has just completed his 16" Novice Preferred Standard and Jumpers with Weaves titles in only three runs each. Considering this is his fifth year in competition, I couldn't be happier. People love to watch him perform. One of the top agility trainers in the country has said that Toby is a special dog. On September 12th, 2009, Toby earned his NADAC Novice Superior Versatility award. On September 13, 2009, Toby earned his NADAC 1,000 Point Lifetime Achievement Award. Way to go little man!

Anything is possible for this little guy. Only time will tell what his future holds.

Toby & I would like to take a moment to thank Manners 'N More Dog Training School for all of their guidance and help in building the bond we share (and helping us look like we know what we're doing when performing together). We would also like to thank the many instructors with whom we have trained. We would like to give a special thanks to Vickie for helping us strengthen our relationship on (and especially off) the agility course.

We would like to thank our agility pals Sharon & Bela and Michele & Cleo. We have seen so much together in our budding agility careers. Here's to us being green handlers & our green dogs. Toby & I look forward to spending many more fun hours together.

Thanks to our friends for coming to the trials. You've seen us at our best and at our worst. We're glad we can entertain you.

Thank you to our family for all of their support. Hey mom & dad, you're finally grandparents! Who knew he would have 4 paws? Tiffany, deep down we know you really love him no matter what you say or do. And to Keesha, Toby's favorite playmate, we're glad he helped you to feel young again. We miss you.

Toby & I would like to send out a big thanks to our biggest supporter. You know who you are. You've helped to strengthen our relationship both on and off the course. Things wouldn't be the same without you. Hey, our list of tricks would be shorter.
