When Melissa and Jason went to their local rescue to find a new puppy, they had no idea that the little girl who sat on Jason’s lap and looked up at him with those big brown eyes would change their lives.  Melissa had wanted to do agility since she was a kid, but due to her schedule, saw to it that Jason and Cabo started to train together.  They exceeded every goal they had set for themselves.  First a MACH, then a trip to Nationals, and now their second trip to Invitationals as the #1 All American.  Because of Cabogirl, as they often call her, Melissa and Jason even started a custom laser engraving business and vend at both Nationals and Invitationals.  When not running and jumping, Cabo enjoys camping, swimming, hiking, and enforcing the house rules on her two feline brothers. Cabo is almost 11, but going on 5!
