Dogs We Know

When we hopped off the plane on the night of Friday July 4th, instead of rushing home and crashing (which would have been appropriate given how tired we were from our cross country festivities), we hit the ground running and scrambled to run some errands, to unpack, and then pack some more! Why? Because we and our agility friends had a busy weekend planned! We were all doing a 2-day agility competition (the same outdoor one we did last year). Despite the fact the event is called “Fun in the Sun,” the weekend was filled with torrential downpours. Thankfully it was warm out, and everyone did really well competitively, despite the weather, racking up the Qs! Miles and I hosted a on-site BBQ on the Saturday night. The attendees all had so much fun that we stayed until quite late. You know it is a good party when people that have been there since 7am (and are coming back the next day at 7am) stay several hours after the event, and well into the evening! Below are a snapshots I took of some of our closest classmates and friends over the weekend:

This post is dedicated to Kohl, Miles and my agility instructor’s 8 year old rescue Belgian Shepherd. Nicole and Kohl joined us all at the Saturday night BBQ. Kohl sat beside me as I grilled burgers, quietly and politely observing. Kohl is in all of our BBQ photos, a relaxed black wolf-like shadow. Its funny when you look back at those sorts of candid personal photos… Realizing that they are the last you have of a loved one. It is funny how an otherwise unspectacular snapshot can suddenly can make your eyes water and your chest tighten. Kohl suddenly and sadly passed away last Monday. He will be greatly missed by all of the dogs and the people that we know.
