This is a weblog dedicated to Region 5 of the North American Flyball Association (NAFA), and specifically to those outstanding dogs awarded each year's Regional MVP award.
She is the foundation and the most versatile dog on our team; a dog that can start, pass and run anchor.
She has taught the new dogs on our team to pass and has been invaluable in teaching dogs who have lost their confidence in passing to learn the game of flyball again. The dogs that Mandy has helped have become great racers with the confidence to play the game, due to her no-fuss attitude. I have never seen a dog dislike or feel threatened around Mandy.
She is a true and confident athlete that plays the game without distraction. On the track she gives her handlers 110%, whether or not it is her owner behind her. She has been racing in flyball since June of 1995 and in March, achieved her FG40K with no signs of stopping. Her Border Collie smile and desire to race are always ready and there is no slowing down for the MVP of Just Say Go!
