This is what we did last year at the Sonoma Wine Country Sheepdog Trial:
It is exciting to think that spring is just around the corner, however, and dropping those entries into the mailbox has become an annual ritual for me. I have spectated, volunteered, and/or handled (or a combination of the three) at all of the Sonoma Wine Country trials since I have been out here in California since spring of 1997 (with the exception of the one year it went on hiatus during that time). It was a personal goal achieved to send in my first entry, with Bid, for Pro-Novice. It was another huge goal achieved, to enter with Coal last year in Open. It was a huge goal achieved to get a score- not a big one - but to get a score - in 2011! Woohoo! Here we are (below) at the pen on the hill course. My goodness -- we made it to the pen. Yowzer!

Here's hoping the weekends surrounding St Patrick's Day will be the best yet!
