Lily Pads For Lily

This is Lily's third year as a AKC Junior Handler. As going into her third year, Lily has qualified for Orlando National's all 3 years!! Last year she was even the second youngest to compete at Westminster , at 12. Lily's Juniors dog is a Cirneco Dell' Etna from Italy. Lily got Deagan at 7 months old and has done all his training herself. She has Finished him in 3 months, Grand Championed him a year later, Canine Good Citizen, Canine Good Citizen A and Therapy Dog. 

Over the past few years Lily has been blessed to learn from some of the best out there in 3 different states (CA, WA & OR). Not only does Lily handle her dogs but has been able to handle several other breeds, such as Belgian Turvuren, Ibizan, Pharaoh Hound, Boston Terrier, Norwegian Buhund, Finish Spitz and many more.  She not only has  Deagan but Her Toy Australian Shepherd, Ginger, and has several performance titles on her. Lily has a true love for all dogs and wants to follow her great grandfather's footsteps as a handler. 

Not only does Lily have a busy AKC schedule, but she has done 4-H for 4 years, visits retirement homes with her dogs,  and funds raises for children's charities. She has participated with JDRF and Wagon Angels for CCA. 

Some of the costs Lily will have will be airline flights, hotels, baggage, entry fees, transportation and of course food. She is fund raising to help with these expenses. 

Lily is trying to raise money to take Deagan to Orlando National's in December 2018 and Westminster in February 2019. With her last win meaning so much to her, when she recieved it in her great grandfather's home town, she can only hope to represent the west coast to her best ability! Her goal is to go on the green carpet of Madison Square Garden as a junior and also representing her breed. Who knows... Maybe Crufts and then The World!! 

We have a saying in our house... "It's never a dull day in Lily Land!"
