    Congratulations!! Great record for a "slow starter". Takes a handler too who knows when to help and when to get out of the way. Hope I get to see them run someday.

    I just want to say that those who suggested re-homing your dog weren't being rude or insensitive. I am 100% sure you love your dog, but it is worth asking yourself if he is happy and if what you can...

    I just can't imagine. It's hard enough losing them after a good, long life. To lose a talented dog in the prime of his life with so much more ahead of you both. Just heartbreaking. As has been...

    Kati Becker is top notch. Will go out of her way (literally) to work with you. I don't think this is just a business to her. She clearly loves the dogs and dog people.
