Divot (Rival's TriHard) is a 6-year-old Border Collie who runs on Top Dog Racers in Texas. Divot, who has his ONYX, is from a combination of great flyball lines (BoTyne Copper) and agility lines (Rival's Jute). According to his teammates, he is one of the most affectionate Border Collies around, and would like nothing more than to give up his flyball job and become a greeter at Wal-Mart. Divot is owned and loved by Melissa Dailey. He is seen here racing at the 2006 World Cynosport® Flyball Championship.
