A new title for Ilka

Yes, you read that correctly. More than two years after her death, Ilka has managed to earn another title, her International Dog Parkour Association Novice Parkour Dog title.

It all started a couple of months ago, when I decided to make compilation videos of the girls' IDPKA title submissions, and I couldn't find all of Ilka's videos. After looking high and low, I thought that maybe checking her certificate for the date would be helpful. After looking through my binder where I keep the unframed certificates, I couldn't find it. I thought maybe it had been emails, and I just hadn't printed it out yet, but it wasn't in my document files. Hmm... okay, since I'm really bad about deleting emails, I checked there... and realized I had never submitted for her PKD-N.

After checking to see if I could make a posthumous submission, I started digging through video clips to see if I could find the last few videos we needed. I found enough that looked like the would work, and submitted everything. Three very long weeks later, I got an email this morning, telling me that she had passed.

ECIN and LadyDi like this.

Congratulations!

It's wonderful that you still have her videos and can revisit the feelings of togetherness you two had. Dogs stay in our hearts forever, I think, but pictures bring them back in such a special way.

The "requiescat in pace" at the end of your video started me tearing up with lots of memories of my own dogs over the years, in a bittersweet but good way.
