A Fitting Tribute

Brisco (1999-2011) loved his yard.  He wanted nothing more than to be in his yard--in any weather--watching all that was going on.  He hated motorcycles.  When one would go by the house, he would run from one side of the yard to the other at top speed.  When he got to the gate where he could see the street, he was so agitated that he would spin in place.  The louder the bike, the more spinning.  It was his "thing," the job he made up for himself.

At the last agility trial Jack found a vendor who made custom signs.  He commissioned a license plate sized sign showing Brisco as a year-old pup, smiling up at the camera, in his yard.  We hung the sign on the gate where Brisco would keep watch, spin when a motorcycle went past, where anyone entering would know...this is Brisco's Yard.
