What a weekend!


If I were the type to get teary, yesterday I would have. My obedience club honored me with the AKC Outstanding Sportsmanship Award. It was a total shock - I'm sure I gobbled like a turkey!
The occasion was our annual club picnic. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day - great weather, wonderful food, a chance to get together with our two- and four-legged friends. We always hand out the Club and Class awards at the picnic, so I got my camera ready for the awards presentations. I knew something was up when Fran took the camera away from me, then Mary Ann started reading this speech about the award and how this person deserved it for all the things she does for the club. At some point I realized she was talking about me!
I was touched and honored. Thank you to the AKC and the North Shore Dog Training Club.

Wow, congratulations!!! What an honor - but you know they wouldn't have given it to you unless you deserved it. Kudos!

Congratulations! What a lovely honour to receive! You certainly have been busy while I have been on holidays. And a Blogging Star as well! They say good things come in threes ... I wonder what is in store for you next!

Thank you all! I can't even begin to say what a surreal experience it is to hear lovely things about yourself while you're alive to hear them!
