Last year (2014) was such a difficult time. I lot two family members (cancer) and learned many important life lessons. The T-shirt slogans come to mind: Don't sweat the small stuff. Live for today. You only go around once; make it worthwhile. As trite as they are, the reason they are trite is because they are true. Hug your dogs. Love your family. Pay attention to relationships. Be kind to one another.

2015 Update

I've been running both Cosi (now 9) and Dixie (now 3) in AKC trials this year. In July Dixie completed one year of agility trials. I see her "green dog" behavior on course, but keep working on foundation exercises and handling skills. She shows a lot of potential. Cosi is F.U.N. to run. We've been working together for 6 years now, and I so enjoy his company, his attitude, and his "game on!" expression. We're off to In The Net this weekend for the Dauphin Dog Training Club trial. Can't wait!
