    Your dog runs to the previous known blinds because they are known. She has confidence because she has been there before. Cold blinds are a different story. Most dogs do not run fast on cold blinds...

    George was a gentleman. Always a smile and a kind word. He loved his dogs and despite his own health issues continued to be as involved as he could. He made the sport better.
