The Big E – Effort or Ease

F Big E Effort or Ease

This is a love story, not a romantic one, but a love story nonetheless It speaks to a level of love which is pure, deep, and in so many ways incredibly beautiful. It is poignant and also painful. Yet, it is one I feel compelled to recount. I share it with you in the spirit of the love which I witnessed, and as a lesson in loving. I observed it firsthand while flying at 24,000 feet above earth during my return home from a recent judging assignment. I hope I never forget what I felt and what I learned.

Caroline Coile Tops the National Owner-Handled Series

F Caroline Coile Top NOHS

Love at first sight. We’ve heard that phrase a million times and generally we’re right by consigning it to the realm of greeting card marketing. Yeah, maybe, mostly…unless you happen to reside in our world. The dedication demanded for success in this sport only comes from one place–absolute love at first sight. And that’s certainly the way it went down for Caroline Coile. She’s a familiar name as an award-winning writer and successful Saluki breeder as well as a name that constantly pops up in the monthly NOHS rankings. We got a lot to unpack here.

Searching for Miss P – Chapter 3

F Searching for Miss P

Everyone, at some point in their dog career, struggles with fault judging. Let’s be honest here, it’s easy to point out the faults of dogs, especially dogs that win consistently. “How does it win with a topline like that?” “Look at its front, how do they keep pointing at it?” I am quite sure we have all heard these lines before. I’m sure we have all used such phrases during our careers. Early in my own career–when my dogs were perfect–I too succumbed to such feelings. And there was always this voice I would hear. It seemed to follow me around, continuously reminding me, continuously trying to make me use my common sense. This voice wasn’t my inner voice or my muse. This voice was very much real. It belonged to one Garrett Lambert. Garrett was a prominent professional handler during the ‘70s, ‘80s and early ‘90s.
