1,000 miles... each way... but worth it :)



So we traveled from New York to Wisconsin; saw a tractor trailer trapped in a ravine; almost hit a deer at 65mph; competed against 100 border collies from all across the U.S.A.; and won the Best of Breed at the Border Collie Society of America Specialty :D (even beating the #1 border collie in the country!!!)

Devon did this once before in 2005 when she was listed as the #1 bitch in the U.S.A. and won the 2005 BCSA Specialty. What makes this so special is that Devon is now 9 years old! There really is nothing out there quite like her. She really is my special girl.

Yo Mama!!!

You raised my goose bumps once again, b13. Nice post and tribute to your two girls. They are at the top of their game.

The world is a crazy place and it's hard to count on anything....except Devon, of course.

Devon and Carolyn should get a home town parade! Talk about grace under pressure—we are in awe!
