Very true Brad. I, unfortunately don't get to go to most events put on by the local club because I have so many dogs to care for and they'd usually require an overnight stay for me.I've been a member of a wide variety of organizations over the years. Its been my experience that you get something out of membership only to the extent that you put something in...
I show, so that takes me away enough. It's not fair for Jacques to be left home all the time, caring for them alone. However, if I get to the point where we're all finished showing, I'll definitely take advantage of those weekends. And...hope to meet you at one of them!
Everyone has been very nice and welcoming to me. I wish I could get away more to spend time and learn more about the working competitions. They sound like so much fun!
