Elizabeth, thank you for your kind words and encouragement. It's all about daring to try, right? But not stupidly. :)

Donald, I think Mr MacRae was right. The moments of magic are why I love what I do. My young Nick actually placed in our 2nd-ever P/N trial this past weekend, but even if we hadn't ... his outrun and lift was a thing of beauty, and whatever other bobbles, he was trying so earnestly to give me his best. I couldn't ask for more than that. :)

You ask of my companions. Hills, sir, and the sundown, and a dog as large as myself that my father bought me. They are better than human beings, because they know but do not tell. ~ Emily Dickinson

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace. ~ Milan Kundera
