Breed of Dog: Golden Retriever
Dog's Club Affiliaton: Texas Twisters
Owner of the Dog: Richard McClellan
Nomination by Mike Smith:
All of us know that there is that one dog, that someone special, that only comes across once in a lifetime. For RJ "Mack" McClellan, that dog has been LJ, his beloved Golden Retriever.
After LJ's training as a service dog, he headed to the home where he's been loved and cared for ever since. Mack decided that LJ would be a great dog to run in flyball. It took LJ no time at all to pick up the game and he started running in 2004 and earned his FGDCH on June 11th, 2011.
LJ has helped many dogs in his flyball career achieve their own titles as well. He is a rock solid dog in the lanes and all those who have had met LJ know his heart to be pure.
Most, if not all of us have fallen down in the flyball lane from time to time. LJ immediately goes into action helping his beloved owner, Mack, when this has happened in the past. LJ is really a site to see, in the flyball lanes or just in passing. He is everything that makes up an MVP, loyal, loving, and a great flyball racer!
