Happy Gotcha Day

Today we celebrate the day I flew to Victoria, two years ago, to pick up sweet 8 week old Brodie. I hate flying, especially by myself, but I made an exception for this boy. So glad I did. He is the love of my life.

Iron Paws Week 4

This week’s Howladays challenge is a little different.  It says  “Stage 4: Heroes week. Feel free to interpret this however suits your fancy, and don’t forget to share your vision.”  I am not sure that hero is the right word but these dogs are my world.  They mean everything to me.  Before Brodie and Spirit I had never done any dog sports.  Now our lives revolve around driving to various classes, practices and trials.  They make sure that I get out and about every single day.  They give so much but ask for so little in return.  They may not be “heroes” in the traditional sense but they are my heroes.
