It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Rally Update

Denali got her first leg toward her Rally Advanced title today!

No placement today in a field of 15 dogs, but her heeling was SO much better than anticipated that I am very happy with our showing! The other issues are easy fixes with a little more practice.

Headed back tomorrow to attempt leg #2!

Thanks for the good wishes all. I'll be sure to tell Denali that everyone is rooting for her!


Perhaps you should bring 'Kota to compete at the Chief Solano Show in Vallejo on April 24-25. I'm planning to take Denali to that one so she can Rally and then perhaps party with Sage's brothers, Cappy and Fig, if they're in town! (Naturally Sage would get to go too!)
