Is courage "the lack of fear" or something that lets a dog or person overcome it?
It's not the lack of fear. It is the power to overcome it. Here is a nice article about it. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/...-cowardly-lion

Courage is absolutely not a lack of fear. It is a soundness when one is under a great deal of fear

Oh no, the cat again! LOL we were just talking about this at the seminar.

All of these have happened to me/my dog in trial/show/run:
- cat on the field during my obedience
- goats about 20 feet away running zoomies and humping each other
- 4 inches of standing water on the field (had to do a cram session convincing the dog she *could* sit and down in standing water)
- dog up in the long down
- female in standing heat in front of my dog
- judge stopping my performance to play-criticize me as if I wasn't nervous enough already
- dog run to judge instead of helper
- judge having a medical emergency (heart attack?)

Poor judge, he got peed on, nearly guarded (by my dog), and the dog brought him the dumbbell remember?

This list made me LOL. Well, except for the last one. But then yours and Jane's comments made me laugh again.
