The four dogs on the cover this month were honored with a nomination to the Clyde Moore Memorial Hall of Fame in 2006, along with Jagger (January's cover dog, who was voted in as the 2006 inductee). Congratulations to every one of these great competitors!


January, 2007
In December, 2006, the NAFA delegation voted in Jennifer Rohling's English Shepherd Jagger as the newest member of the Clyde Moore Memorial Hall of Fame. Jagger's is an amazing story – since 1996 she has run on 4 Multi-breed Regional Champion teams, and she is the #1 English Shepherd in flyball with 85,233 points (currently ranked #15 on the NAFA Top Pointed Dog list). But that's not all – in 2004, Jagger was diagnosed with cancer and had to have one of her rear legs removed at the hip. After she recovered she made it clear that she wanted to play flyball again. She went on to earn over 20,000 more points by her retirement in June, 2006.
