Dear Fellow Sheepdogger,

It is my habit to write down in each dog's journal a careful description of every trial run (and every important clinic/coaching session/revelatgory training session). This forces me to focus hard on what actually happened. a good friend watching or videoing are also helpful. Remember, the lessons of defeat are tomorrow's successes.

Thus far,in three runs at the Big One and Slash J trials, my new sheepdog Fly has a total combined score of . . . zero.Naturally, I am very encouraged. She is the best outrunner/gatherer I have ever owned and one of the best I have ever seen. She handles stroppy range yearlings wonderfully well. She's a brilliant shedder. We will build on our strengths and next year, she will set these trials on fire.

Good luck Miss Tea. See you on down the road.
