Glider was the pink girl out of Scout's second litter. Scout was bred to Tyler (Am/Can Ch Castlehill's Magic Moment Am/Can CDX TDI) using frozen semen. I had great success with this breeding and got 9 pups (5 boys, 4 girls). I went into this breeding wanting a girl and I had a tough time picking between the four wonderful girls. However, when someone mentioned about possibly getting the pink girl, my immediate reaction in my heart and head was no, she is my girl. From that moment on, I knew the pink girl would be Glider. I fell in love with her spirit and attitude. From the moment she opened her eyes, Glider had great eye contact and was always seeking my attention. She was the first to walk and she was always one of the first to explore everything. She has a great intensity about everything she does and I love that for the performance events we do together. While Glider has great drive, she is also very sweet. She is very snuggly.
Glider has a lot of strengths conformationally. She has a great body (nice rib spring, short loin), nice structure, and a beautiful, long neck. She has a square muzzle and nice tail set. She measures 21 inches at the shoulder and is 48 pounds. Glider does not have her breed championship. I was waiting for her to mature and for her coat to fully come in. However, her seasons were so difficult on her that I decided that it was best to spay her. We have both been very happy with that decision.
I always have fun training Glider. We focus mostly on agility, our first love but I have also trained Glider in obedience and field work. It has taken me some time to figure out how to run this very talented and very fast girl but we have come together as a team and we have so much fun running together. Glider is incredibly fast and she thinks she knows it all. Glider earned her MACH on February 2, 2014. She finished 2012 as the #3 IWS in agility and she was 2nd at the 2012 AKC agility invitational. Glider went into the 2013 invitational as the #2 IWS. She had a wonderful showing and had 4 clear rounds and made it to the finals. The first IWS to ever make it to the finals! Glider finished 2013 as the #2 IWS. Glider earned her MACH2 on March 7, 2015. Glider was the top IWS in agility for 2015 and she only ran half of the year with our move to Connecticut.
Glider earned her Nose Work level 1 title (NW1) March 24, 2013. She is one of the first IWS to have this title. It is a very fun sport.
Glider is OFA Hips Good, Elbows Normal, Shoulders Normal, Thyroid Normal, Cardiac normal, and CERF Clear. CHIC #84008
