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 Red Ribbons for an RA Title!

Denali earned her "RA" Title this morning in San Jose with a score of 96 in a field of 15 dogs! Another second place finish.

Her RA ribbons look like a Christmas Celebration.

She was pretty happy with herself. This was the smile I saw in the ring today too!

Here's Denali, along with her friend, Lotus, and her "mom," Elissa. We train together and the girls seem to like having a friend with 5" legs when we go to shows.

Lotus, a lovely Tibetan Terrier, got her second RA leg today.

Denali just loves this competition. Seeing this happy face is the real award!

Next stop - a herding specialty show in Concord, CA featuring Rally and Obedience on March 6th! Hopefully our first Excellent leg! It is sponsored by a German Shepherd club, so we will be competing against a lot of dogs "with legs."

CONGRATS!!! And now you've caught up to Kota! He has 1 Excellent leg (by the hair of his chinny chin chin). You guys will motivate me to get him out and finish that Excellent title, yet! :)
Congrats to an excellent team!!
