Tirlta Peace of Mind - Mungo

T Ch O Ch Tirlta Peace of Mind UDX

To date (2017) Mungo is the only ACD bitch or dog to have attained both Tracking & Obedience Champion Titles and/or UDX Title.  She was placed first, second or third in all trials and usually first.

Mungo’s keenness to learn quickly was evident from puppyhood.  She was admired for speed and accuracy and her obvious enjoyment of the challenges posed by obedience work and tracking. At the same time, she was often over anxious and very sensitive to correction. A very close bond developed between Sue Dickerson and Mungo as they gained each other’s trust and respect.

Setting a pattern for future trials, Mungo romped through her Novice obedience trials in 2004 and, at her first Open trial, gained Highest Score in Trial. From keenness, enthusiasm and sheer joy, she injured her back whilst jumping during Open work in 2005. Tracking and Utility exercises occupied her convalescence and she returned to competition in 2007 with her characteristic urge to succeed.

Age-related failing eyesight and hearing persuaded Mungo’s retirement in 2013.
