Change

One of the first trials I ever went to was the Black CAT trial in 2001 or 2002 which had the Northwest Cup competition - Fenwick won the Novice Cup! I had no idea what was going on at the time, but it was fun to come home with a big glass engraved trophy. Back …

I’m in Love with Fall

It's crazy how much the summer drains me - and when Fall returns it's like I have my life back. I can take the dogs out any time of day, I actually enjoy going outside, I have energy to train and suddenly RUNNING agility is actually fun again. I just love Fall so much (and …
