Thomas Djurfors & Blur - 600mm
My name is Thomas Djurfors. Blur, my 5 year-old border collie, and I are super excited to be representing Canada at WAO in the Netherlands in 2019. This is our first rodeo at such a high level, prestigious event. Blur is from Double J Border Collies in Oregon, USA. Blur and I live with Niki and 5 other dogs: Simon (BC), Clifford (Papillon), Casper (Papillon), Gracie (Working Cocker) and Espresso. (Papillon). Niki and Clifford have represented Canada twice at WAO.
Blur and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and train with our agility friends and under the stellar tutelage of our coaches Justine and Jessica at Shape Up Dogs.
From the Agility Chronicles: When Blur was 2 years old, his handler managed to break his ankle….ummm skateboarding (it’s a long story). This happened 3 weeks before AAC Nationals in BC. Not great timing. However, that summer the handler was able to focus on proofing the weaves from the comforts of his lawn chair, often with a cool beverage in hand.
Motto: Run like you mean it (a direct quote from the handler’s coach).
