Member: Bea Moore and Journey
Event: At the Salinas Valley KC on 12-2-05...

Journey got his UD on Dec. 2, 2005 at the Salinas Valley KC Trial in San Mateo!! Our judge was Dorin Ladd. We've been working diligently this past year attending Trials and coming extremely close to qualifying many times. He has had so much fun most of the time and his (or my) mistakes were learning tools for me :o) Learning when to pump up my dog and when to control my dog in the ring and also body language and timing! But then there's always the totally unexpected !! That's why we call this event Futility Utility :o)

Having patience to wait was of the utmost importance. I knew the goal would be accomplished - just not necessarily in a timely manner.

I've always said, It's All In The Journey! Once your mission is accomplished, you need to find another goal. It's a lifelong adventure with our Goldens.
