Happy Birthday, Pumpkin!

Katie turns 11 today! As you can see below, she is feeling great. She has lots of energy and looks forward to our backyard training and rehab exercises.
I really miss competing together. While Reagan and Riley are progressing nicely, there was something invincible about walking into a ring with Katie. I was emailing with a friend recently about our older and younger dogs and a great word to describe Katie (and Travis) was bombproof. It never mattered what was happening outside of the ring. Katie was too focused to notice anything, but the task at hand. I think she could have handled any situation and I truly mean that. I have my doubts about the youngsters in certain situations, but time will tell and I hope they prove me wrong.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Girl!
