SHE PASSED!!

I'm so proud of my girl. She passed her CGC! I adopted her from a shelter just shy of two years ago. She was poorly socialized, fearful, and had no obedience training. I remember reading the CGC requirements shortly after bringing her into my life and laughing out loud knowing there wasn't a single thing she could pass. It's been a long road but I finally felt like she was ready to try. I was a bit worried because she's still leary around strangers and can be a bit reactive with other dogs while she's on leash. She performed beautifully and passed with ease.
Even after passing the test, she continued to behave herself showing me that she really did deserve it.

I'm so so proud of my girl. Here she is right after finishing the evaluation showing off her bandana:

Risa is a quality dog who has a superior owner devoted to helping her move forward, no matter what issues she may have come with, no matter what life throws your way. You two are a true TEAM! Congratulations on your very well-deserved CGC, Risa!

Oh my gosh, Jaimie! I got a HUGE lump in my throat when I saw the subject line! I never thought I'd get so attached to your silly little Risa! What an achievement. For what you have done, for your devotion, for her efforts to please you, you have moved a mountain today, girl.

Knowing all her issues, this is just astounding. Mere words aren't enough. So happy and proud!

Thanks guys. I'm so proud of her. And of me. We've both put in a lot of work--especially over the last month--to try and get where we are now. The work will not stop as she could still use some polish here and there.
But it's nice to have proof of the work I've done with her over the past almost 2 years.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

I'm proud of you both


I know you understand Spanish, but did you know that Risa means "Laugh"? I hope she keeps bringing happiness to your life.

LicanAntai, she was named for the Spanish 'sonrisa' because of her smile.
I just shortened it to 'risa' and it remains appropriate. I hope she continues to fill my life with smiles and laughter for years to come.
