FLYBALL: In his very first tournament in 2005, Token earned his FD, FDX and FDCH. He
went on to earn his FMCH and was 431 points away from ONYX. His personal best was 3.947
seconds as the start dog.

Token displayed great enthusiasm in every facet of his life.
Token was very people-oriented, he loved just about anyone he met. It had been suggested that he
should be a Therapy Dog because of his natural desire to be close to people. He loved to be in physical
contact, and was extremely affectionate.  
Token had a solid, stable temperament and exhibited a nice blend of drive, resilience, biddability,
sociability and athleticism. He was a wonderful, happy companion in the house, with a true joy for life
Token was taken from us far too soon due to rupture of a benign splenic mass.
