Life will never be the same (pic heavy)


Found these pictures this week. Pretty tough go to look at them, but perhaps I am getting better.

Gala was my Novice A dog and first dog to truly try to prepare for competition. We had absolutely grand times together and she was my soul friend. Mostly she was a comic, but when she used her powers for good, she was very good! The laughs are better memories than the wins in many ways, though.

I used to feel so lucky to get look at her beautiful headpiece resting beside me.


She was a powerful, collected and animated heeling girl.


The "Galagator" was a youngster here and then I didn't realize how much I had already asked of such a young dog. Judges used to say she was privilege to judge....ok, that was on her good days!! Her badness stories are hilarious though.


We never got to finish Utility. I landed a big career job that took my time and her arthritis caught up with us. She loved to train and was a rocket on the recall even though just weeks from succumbing to hemangiosarcoma.

She was a very intuitive dog and was always in charge around the place. She would let no repair or yard men do their job without her quiet surveillance. She was polite to stay at a distance but always alert to their every move. Kids were her special charge and if they got too rambunctious she would put a stop to it. They called her "the sheriff".

Heart that wouldn't stop until the very end. There will never be another like her in my lifetime, I am pretty sure.

Loss doesnt get easier, you just eventually grow accustomed to the feeling.

If it is to be it is up to me.
I fought the good fight,
I was in it for the long haul

She was a looker for sure. That first picture says it all. I cant even imagine what it feels like to loose a friend like that but I know that day will come for us all. I dont visit this area much because it reminds me that the Sarge wont be around forever and ill be writing something about him.

Im sorry you lost your friend.

WOW, she was beautiful, and you can tell really intelligent and soulful.

I'd love to hear her bad stories sometime.
