With Brave Wings She Flies

A couple weeks ago I rearranged The Wall to better reflect where we’re at now. Most of Edie’s things are now in her memory box, which arrived yesterday. She’s been gone 10 months. I miss that little dog. ♥

Her two leashes made by Kathryn still hang where I can see them.
One is her first agility leash. The other is her Invitational leash.
Years ago, Lori gave me a charm with this saying. It hung on Edie’s crate in the car.
It still hangs on The Wall, on top of her Masters Jumper Preferred titling rosette.
We learned so much together, her and I.
My Novice A dog became a Master in agility.
We reached my highest goal – an invite to the AKC Agility Invitational.
Curious. Her ribbons and rosettes fill the box, yet not one is visible in this photo.
As it should be. She was mostly my little dog and a good sport.

Last trial of 2020

Who knows when we’ll be able to trial again. All trials in January 2021 are cancelled. It’s good to be part of a community that has gone above and beyond hosting a handful of trials this year, keeping us as safe as possible. It’s good to part of a community where many clubs chose not to host trials. It’s good to be part of a community where an alert went out because an exhibitor’s dog had kennel cough. It’s good to be part of a community where people care about people. It’s good to be part of a community where people care about dogs. ♥

I knew the start – jump into the soft side of the weaves – was going to be a challenge. Really happy with how that went. Whee! Blasting out of the tunnel with the tire on his line! What a good boy changing his line at the last second. 🙂
