Jun 13 -- Wow!
I cannot believe that I have let this go for so long! Jack has
been totally amazing the last few years. He achieved more than I
ever could have expected him to. As you can see by all of his
titles, he has been accomplishing a lot! In Sept 2012 he became
the very first Shar-Pei Agility Champion when he earned his PACH
(Preferred Agility Champion). I could never have
dreamed this would happen when we first started! He has been an
amazing partner and I have been so blessed to share this with him.
I recently retired him --- he is 11 1/2 and getting a little hard of
hearing - otherwise he's doing great!
May 09 -- Jack is doing well in Preferred and has already worked
his way back into Exc B.
Mar 09 -- I moved
Jack to Preferred and it is amazing how much faster he is! He
now has both Novice Preferred titles and is working on the Open titles
-- we hope to finish those up in WF next month. He turned 7 in
December is running better than ever!
Dec 08 --- Jack attended the AKC Agility Invitational for the third
year in a row and continued to make me proud! He even made his
debut on Animal Planet in a couple of quick shots during the promos!!
Sep 08 -- We did it!!!! Jack got his
MASTER AGILITY EXCELLENT JUMPER
(MXJ) title in Albuquerque last weekend!!! He is only the third
Shar-Pei to ever get one. I was SO excited - what a good boy he
is! He also got an MX leg which now makes 28 (I think). He
now has 95 MACH points!!! I would like for him to get a few more 2Qs -
we haven't had one in a while. He came really close on both days
in Albuquerque, but it was so hot in the afternoons that he didn't run
Jack is also in a local commercial! You can see it on
youtube --- just go to
www.youtube.com/paulapei . It's the video just titled
Aug 08 -- Jack ran good in Fort Worth --- even had a few Katie
moments!!! He got a STD leg or two, but what we really need is
that last MXJ leg!
July 08 -- Jack ran GREAT
in San Antonio. He got his 9th MXJ leg and came SO close to
getting his title --- he ran clean another day, but was less than 2
seconds over time. The last day he had time to spare, but popped
out at the end of the weaves! I know we can do it!!!
June 08 -- Jack has been runnng really well, but still needs two MXJ
legs --- I'm really hoping we will get them this summer!
December -- Jack was the #1
Pei for 2006 and invited to the AKC Agility Invitational in Long
Beach, CA the first week in December. What a blast -- he ran
great! Hopefully I'll have a link to the video soon. He
also finally got another JWW leg -- he needs three more!
July -- San Antonio/Houston
-- We did one day in San Antonio and Jack had a great Standard run; he
Qed and got 4 MACH points. Time was too tight in JWW, so he
didn't get that one. In Houston he got another Standard leg (for
a total of 20 - too bad there's not an MX2!). He ran clean all 4
days in JWW but never made time! Overall he ran good though and
I was happy with him.
July 4, 2007 -- We just returned from the Monroe trial.
It was not a good weekend for us - no Qs. Jack ran slow all
weekend and refused the teeter three out of four days. I don't
know what it was -- maybe he just had a headache!! We all have
bad days, so I guess he's allowed a bad weekend every now and then.
We have another trial coming up soon, so we'll just have to see what
2007 -- I realize I have been bad about keeping Jack's info up to
date. In March Jack got his 4th 2Q and now has a whopping 72
MACH points! He still needs 4 legs for his MXJ -- I'm really
hoping we can get those this summer. I also still need to
get him certified for therapy. We've been doing some agility
demos around town.
2007 -- We competed in Rally-O this weekend and Jack got his
RALLY ADVANCED title (RA).
He's such a good boy!!
2007 -- Yesterday Jack became the #1
Agility Shar-Pei of all time!!! We competed in
McKinney this weekend and he was awesome. He got a 2Q yesterday
(his 3rd) and would have gotten another one today, but I messed
him up. He also got 14 MACH points this weekend - which is great
for him. He now is half way to his MXJ title - still needs five
2007 -- Jack has been doing GREAT! He got his second 2Q in
Lubbock in October and his MASTER AGILITY
EXCELLENT title (MX)!!! He now has 48 points and is
very close to being the #1 Agility Shar-Pei EVER!! The best a
Shar-Pei has ever done is two double Qs and 53 points. Jack
currently has two double Qs and 48 points! Since my last update
he has also gotten two more MXJ legs, so now needs 6 more! I do
believe we're going to do it!!! He has come close to a couple of
2Qs but has trouble making time on the Jumper courses.
Jack and I also attended the
inaugural AKC Agility Invitational
in Long Beach, CA at the beginning of December. He represented
his breed well and we had a blast! Saturday was okay, but Sunday
was great! If you'd like to see his runs go here:
SEE JACK RUN!
2006 -- Just a quick update -- Jack got his first 2Q (double Q) a
couple of weeks ago in Albuquerque! It was so exciting!! He now
has 8 of the 10 legs needed for his MX and 2 of the 10 for his MXJ.
He has had several "clean runs" in Jumpers, but over time. He got
his first MXJ leg in Houston in July and the second in Albuquerque
last month. I actually have hope that we can do this! He also
now has a whopping 26 MACH points!!! That sounds pretty pitiful
until you realize that the best a Pei has EVER done is 2 double Qs
and 53 points.
Jack got his final RN leg in May
so got his RALLY NOVICE
title. He also got his first RA (Rally Advanced) leg.
I had only planned on getting his Novice title, but now we have to
go on and get those other two advanced legs!!!
2006 -- Jack continues to do well. On 11/13/05 he got his
EXCELLENT AGILITY JUMPER title (AXJ).
He also now has 7 MACH points and is officially the
#1 agility Shar-Pei
in the country!! He has 4
of the 10 legs needed for his Master Agility (MX) title, but
doesn't have any yet for the Master Agility Jumpers (MXJ). He has
had a couple of clean runs, but was over time. Back when we
started this I never would have thought he would get this far! We
have a few trials coming up in the next few months, so hopefully
we'll have news to report soon.
Jack also earned his
first 2 Rally Obedience legs a couple of weeks ago!!! I wasn't
real confident that we could do it, but he was awesome -- getting
first place the first day and third the next!! We will go to the
next Rally trial in May and hopefully get that title!!
2005 -- Jack has been doing SO great! He now has his
AGILITY EXCELLENT title (AX) (as
of 9/24/05) and just needs one more leg for his Agility Excellent
Jumpers title. He also has two legs towards his Master Agility
title and even has 6 MACH points!!!
2005 -- Lubbock TX -- Jack got his third Open Jumpers leg and now
has his OPEN AGILITY JUMPER
Title (OAJ) --- now it's on the Excellent!! He also earned his
first Excellent standard leg today!!
2005 -- Garden City, KS -- Jack earned his second Open JWW leg
--- one more to go!!
2005 -- Jack earned his last leg for his
OPEN AGILITY title (OA) this past weekend in McKinney
he had a perfect score of 100 and came in 2nd place!! He still
needs 2 Jumper legs in Open!
2004 -- Jack earned two legs towards his Open Agility
title this weekend -- he needs one more!!!
2004 -- Jack has his NOVICE AGILITY
JUMPER Title (NAJ) -- he earned a leg yesterday and
Aug 29, 2004 Jack has his NOVICE AGILITY
title (NA) and one Jumpers leg -- our next trial is Lubbock mid
October, so maybe.....
- Jack attended his first Shar-Pei Nationals in Houston in April
and won one of his classes --- Futurity 15+ months, Horsecoat. It
was very exciting! We also competed in Obedience, but we weren't
quite ready for that!!! We're hoping to try again at Nationals
become a big momma's boy --- he is my "velcro" dog! He has done
so much to heal my heart --- I can't imagine not having him. He
is currently in classes for agility and obedience and we hope to
get him certified for therapy work soon. He is the sweetest dog
in the world!
Jack comes to me from the
same breeders that my Bailey girl did: Larry and Deena Harvey -
Shar-Pei - thanks again guys - you're the best!
