It’s hard to write about working my dogs when I’m….actually not. I have a 10 acre pasture full of tumble weed, a dog who is seemingly so sensitive that if she had thumbs and a thesaurus she’d probably be the worst poet since the fifth Bronte sister no one ever talks about – Midge Bronte – a psychotic fleabag who loved unwisely and constantly, and was so full of worms that she scooted across all the best carpets in London during The Season, always requesting the same waltz because it soothed her “stinky third eye”…. She rhymed easy syllables and was always really shittily sarcastic about including the word ‘Wuthering’ ..which she claimed to have coined in reference to her sister’s bad flatuence.
She didn’t really exist, except in my head.
Biz is coming along or dragging me along, more correctly. Someday she will trial. If she ever learns to drive. Right now we don’t see eye-to-eye on the importance. It’s enough to outrun perfectly, lift nicely and fetch the shit out of those pellet dispensers. Then it’s time for a swim.
Duke…ahhhhh…Duke. He’s going to need someone bigger than me. Or I haven’t ruled out a gorilla suit. I don’t think there is even a USBCHA ‘guideline’ against it.
I don’t know when my next trial is. Probably when I have a dog who will compete and not merely run. When I feel competent enough to help her/him. Fortunately the women in my family tend to live long lives…
