Hopefully everyone will notice another new "title" added after Tito's name in my signature. :D
It's FFXG, which is the Front and Finish Excellence Gold award.
It's for getting all 3 of his obedience titles in less than 24 months. Darn, he JUST missed the platinum level, for which he would have had to have gotten all 3 within 12 months! :(
Here's a link for anyone else who wants to apply for the award. It does cost you $10, but they send you a neat certificate! Also good for other venues (UKC, CKC) and for agility, too!

Very cool! Way to go Tito, you are on a roll! :bowl:

I was just checking the site out and Mira is elligible for the FFX Agility Platinum Award for "Attainment of an agility title in the first three consecutive classes with clear rounds (scores of 100)" Yippi!!! She earned both her novice titles with a 100% Q rate and 100pt runs each time. Very cool, I am going to fill out the paperwork and get one too! Thanks for sharing! :D

that's just awesome! That's why I posted it, I suspect there are others in our ranks who qualify for the gold or platinum, and have never heard of it. If you read their website, it says you should put FFXP after Mira's name now!!!

I just checked and apparently the DWA has been discontinued. Drat, can always use more awards, LOL!

How incredible! Another HUGE congratulations! I'm sure you know that many people work years to obtain a UD--to get such an advanced title in such a short amount of time is a real testament to you and Tito's teamwork and ability. I know more brags are ahead!

I didn't realize that the Total Dog Award had been discontinued--I think that was recent? Someone had told me you had to have three scores in a row of at least 190 or better for that award. Nice to see Front and Finish offer these awards.

Congrats Tito Monster!!!! It's fun to put the alphabet behind (or in front) of their names!

I am going to look into this too for agility!

Belle only started running in April 2008 she has not gone 24 months yet! She did get her Novice jumpers title in 3 runs. (don't know if it can be retroactive) I am hoping she has her MJP and MXP the first week of October. This is so cool!

wow, what an honor for you to say that! I'd love to meet you and your crew, and you could teach us field work!!! How awesome that would be!

Speaking of honors, a brag here, this past weekend an obedience judge (not the one judging) came up to me and gave me her contact information, told me if and when I breed the Tito Monster, she wants one of his pups. I told her he hasn't got the CH in front of his name, and she said she doesn't care, she's "seen him move in the breed ring" and that's good enough for her.
Quite an honor!

It can be retroactive for a year!
(from one title sl*t to another, LOLOL) ( I had to edit it to take the "u" out, it censored me, ha ha)

Congratulations - you should be very proud. Titles are one thing - but they truly show the bond between dog and owner - something to definitely celebrate! What a team you two are!

Way to go!

Yes, that makes 7 that I believe to be totally serious. Plus quite a few who have said they are, but I doubt it. IF it ever happens....

Congrats to Barb and Tito Monster! And that's so cool that the judge wants one of the Monster's pups!! You title sl-t you LOL.

But on a serious note, if any of you have seen Tito in action, he is a beauty.
