    Default What are your goals for 2014???

    This has been done on here in the past so lets do it again. My goals are MH and hopefully QAA, but that's a long shot.

    This guy said it better than I can! I have come full circle from wanting a FT win to being happy if my young dog is sound enough to finish his Senior title in the spring. After that?????


    Look around me
    I can see my life before me
    Running rings around the way
    It used to be

    I am older now
    I have more than what I wanted
    But I wish that I had started
    Long before I did

    Chorus
    And there's so much time to make up
    Everywhere you turn
    Time we have wasted on the way

    So much water moving
    Underneath the bridge
    Let the water come and carry us away

    Oh when you were young
    Did you question all the answers
    Did you envy all the dancers
    Who had all the nerve

    Look round you NOW
    You must go for what you wanted
    Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved

    Chorus
    So much time to make up
    Everywhere you turn
    Time we have wasted on the way

    So much water moving
    Underneath the bridge
    Let the water come and carry us away

    Let's See
    HUNT HUNT HUNT (sea-ducks !!?, Pheasant Trip!!?, HONKERS!!!)
    Prepare for Masters-Finished with the pups (hopefully ready for them in fall)
    Find time for the Grand, Finish GMHR on one dog
    Finish Big dog's Qualifying career (4 more tests before I put a ka-bash on it ).
    Run pups in derby, just to see, (how long I can keep a white coat clean?)
    Fight the temptation of the Master National being on the West-Coast this year (just keep saying 1000 dogs, until I'm rocking back and forth huddled in a corner )
