BIS CH Wanna'be Along for the Ride Hitch-Hiker
June 9, 1996 to December 11, 2010
Thank you for a wonderful journey ~
Nutter Butter, what can I say, it was an incredible journey that we shared. I feel fortunate to have been touched by such an old wise soul as you. You touched every one you met with gentleness and a kindness unlike any other that I have met. You have taught me well and I will miss you forever.
Rest easy my old friend.

Note from Deb on Hitch-Hiker's Agility Career:
On November 21, 2009, Hitch-Hiker ran his last competitive run in the sport that he loves. Due to an injury and his age, we have chosen to retire him. He has been the very best partner anyone would want. He always gave his all, saved my butt many times through the years. I am blessed and thankful that I had the opportunity to run with this little guy for the last 11 years. Through the years he has had many great moments, many High in Trials, NATCH’s, V-NATCH, way too many to list. He now retires 3 Q’s short of his overall NATCH 11. We look forward to enjoying many more years of retirement with him as once he heals he will still enjoy the agility field at home. Thanks for being the best partner.
