BLUE HERON AGILITY ASSOCIATION OF DELAWARE

DONATION TO DELMAR POLICE DEPARTMENT

SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

Blue Heron Agility Association of Delaware (BHAD) recently presented the Delmar Police Department with a check for $1,000 to cover the cost of a new state-of-the-art protective dog vest. The money was presented to Cpl. Thomas Esham and his canine partner Atilla, a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois.

Taking part at the vest donation are (l-r) Blue Heron Agility Association’s President Carole Krivanich, Eileen Kane, Sally Waldie, Leah Eicher, Anne Showell, Mary Kimball, Don Eicher, Cpl. Thomas Esham, Atilla, Mike Smith, American Kennel Club (AKC) Judge Mark Upshaw, Kellie Hudson, Denise Jester, Trixie Rufft, Linda Furey, Sandy Moody and Norm Kimball.

BHAD is a small AKC sanctioned performance club.  We have been hosting AKC Agility trials in Delaware and Maryland for 7 years.  The funds from the events go back into our community through the donations for protective vests and other canine needs.  The Club has been able to provide 8 vests over the past 4 years. Our Club goal is to make sure all of our K9 partners are protected with the best possible equipment.

The Club plans to present two vest donations in 2018.
