1992 was a very good year for very good dogs. Augie's birthday is tomorrow, August 20th. He was born in 1992 so he would have been seventeen.
Here are some collages that I created of Augie's photos a while back, sort of as therapy as a result of losing him. He loved to track and was very good at it. I'll never forget his TDX test.
On sheep we had a lot of rough moments due to inadequate training and me being a rank beginner. Still Augie showed a lot of heart and loved to watch and work with the sheep even into his elder years.
Augie was fast in agility but was again hampered by his handler. We did all right though, and had lots of fun with it.
This little guy was also born in 1992 but don't let his size fool you. He won the hearts of many in agility and otherwise. He did make it to age seventeen but unfortunately he passed away last week. They broke the mold when they made you, Moose. Run clean and run fast -- you always did!
