Congratulations to Sharon and Devin!

Black Tie Poet AX MXJ XF T2B DCAT CGC TKN

On August 6, 2021, Sharon Smith and Black Tie Poet AX MXJ XF T2B DCAT CGC TKN  aka Devin earned their Canine Performance Event CPE Agility Team Extraordinare (C-ATE) title.

Devin is the first greyhound to achieve this title which is awarded when 5,000 points have been achieved at the C level where no faults are allowed. It includes at least 20 qualifying scores in each of 6 different games (3,000 points) and an additional 2,000 points in games of the handler’s choosing. The games are standard, jumpers, full house, snooker, jackpot, wildcard, and colors. Each Q is worth between 15-25 points.

From Sharon: "Devin is a talented jumper and loves the tunnels - as long as the tunnel is not the first obstacle so he can get a running start. After all they are 24” tall and he is 29” tall so he has to crawl! He is a crowd favorite and always shows his joy for the sport of agility."

Their beauty and attitude is what drew me to Greyhounds. Watching them run is truly a thing of beauty, whether they be young or old. They are smart and exceptional hounds that do enjoy working alongside their masters. You really cannot ask for a better dog.

This breed is so underrated. They are sweet, clean, smell good! and are funny. But you had better have a fenced yard. This is one of the best breeds to own.
