    I'm sorry, but I am going to have to correct you. What you meant to type was "my 7.5 year old young man"!!! What a great accomplishment! That pond you guys ran in looks pretty tough.

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments. Initially we did not plan to run Finished until spring (after considerable practice), it will be interesting to see how they do after a short week of practice.

    Man the pond was tough, Smokie had never seen the first lily pad in her life, but she handled it well. I think it helps that she will be 4 years old in January, perhaps more mature than the regular dogs that run.

    Outstanding! Congratulations to your son! There are lots of grownups that don't have that kind of composure.
    Way to go, Dad, you've done something right along the way!
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    awesome news I just thought I had fun running dogs, when my kids run our dogs it doesn't get any better. I told paige that no matter what it costs to ride jumping ponies for Ira or getting another Ft dog just for Wick it was cheaper than rehab and we would be with the kids and know who they were running around with. A great way to spend time with your family is to get them involved at a early age.
