Labrador From Howell Makes Leap Toward Glory

Posted: Updated:

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A Labrador retriever from Howell will compete next week in Atlanta against some of the most athletic dogs in the country.

Susanne Sparano of Howell is taking her 3-year-old dog, Cooper, to the invitation-only contest being held April 4 and 5.

Cooper was invited to the eastern regionals of the Purina ProPlan Incredible Dog Challenge because of his performance in preliminary rounds. The competition will be held at Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park.

It includes several events, from agility drills to dock diving to aerial chases. Cooper will compete in Fetch-It, which tests how far a dog can leap.

Winners advance to the national finals in October at Purina Farms near St. Louis.
