Thank you, Nix, for 6 absolutely incredible years.
Can't wait to see what happens next!


  1. Happy Birthday, Phoenix! May you and your Mom have many more years together.

  2. Still wild after all these years! WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO

  3. I already wished him a great day but wanted to share this too:I didn’t write this book – nor am I involved in the sales of it but I think every sport dog should have humans who have read the book! So here I go commenting on my favourite blogs in the hopes that more people and dogs will benefit from it!

    Trials without Tribulations: Understanding and mastering the unique challenges of competing with your dog, e-book, $18.95 CAD

    For more info and to order, go to

    Here's what people are saying:

    "It really is great! So helpful, puts things in perspective and gives a whole lot of really useable information. I will read it again and again."

    "First few chapters are great!!! Will have extra time over the next few days to finish but I’m very impressed with what I’ve read so far. Applies to all levels, no matter how “serious” a competitor you are and there’s something for everyone to take away. Dogs everywhere will thank you."

    "I started reading your book and I love it. I think that it is great for people new to the sport and great reminders for those of us that are not new."

    "... echos and reinforces some of the things I have long believed about the cost of competition on our dogs but she goes much further than that, offering specific strategies to build resilience in the whole team and improve performance. I cannot think of one person who won't get something of value from the book. I know I will read it again and again."

    "It's pretty awesome."
