Peaches The #1 Mini Smooth Dachshund in NAFA flyball
Meet 'Peaches' and her proud mom Tanya Petrucha of greater Chicagoland. Peaches, aka 'The Flying Sausage,' earned enough flyball points on Sunday in Iowa to become the #1 Mini Smooth Dachshund in North American Flyball. Way to go Peaches, we're so proud of you! We know Peaches personally, and she's the best girl. She was a rescue girl with a troubled past, but her love of balls and her caring mom led her on to great things including flyball and even wiener racing down in Buda, Texas! From Tanya: At our flyball tournament on Sunday, The Flying Sausage became the #1 Mini Smooth Dachshund in North America Flyball!!! I can't even begin to express how proud I am! When we first started racing, I figured it would be years before Peaches earned enough points to celebrate this if we ever did at all. She's only been racing for 15 months! She never ceases to amaze me with her determination and spirit! Find out more about flyball at theNorth American Flyball Association.
