Ten Years Later

Thinking back today to ten years ago when my first dog Chase and myself were run over by a car out walking. Yes we had a lot of rehab to get through both in body and mind, but we were both so lucky that day. An experience like that reminds us to live fully each day we are given. You never know how life can change in an instant or be gone all together. Yes we were lucky.

Like A Dream

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."

Sunny Day


Finally it felt a little bit like spring today! The sun was shining and the snow and ice were melting somewhat. We even saw mud!! Of course snow in the forecast for tonight, but it was enjoyable while it lasted!

Zephyr Steeplechase March 9th, 2014





I had the fun of trialing yesterday with the Dog Agility Ontario club. Great day with friends and our dogs. Zephyr is now 12 years old but still doing great. I won't run him more than twice in the trial although I am sure he would be fine to do so. Still moves so well, and has such fun! I just love him so much and have such a wonderful time with him!

Goodbye Fergus

I was so upset to hear yesterday, about the passing of Fergus, Zephyr's older brother. A most special dog, loved so much by his family and all who knew him. The above photo taken 9 years ago when we started to trial together. Zephyr and Fergus ran as team partners back in the day of passing the baton, his owner and I becoming friends.
 Our dogs give us so much. They leave great big holes in our hearts when they go however. In time we heal and smile at all the memories, but still so hard to say goodbye. He will be missed.
