Lisa's canine teammate for the WAC is ADCH Rising Sun Slick. Slick is a seven-and-one-half-year-old smooth coated Border Collie. Lisa and Slick have accomplished many things in agility, qualifying for the finals in several different events at the World Cynosport Games over the years.
BF: What are you doing now to get ready for the big event?
LB: Slick and I are focusing on strengthening our Gamblers and Snooker skills.
BF: Which of your strengths do you think will come in handy at the WAC?
LB: Slick and I are well schooled in International style course challenges.
BF: Tell us something about you that we don't know.
LB: Slick is my first Border Collie, having started agility 11 years ago with Belgian Malinois.
