Blue Birds

Stephanie gathering her dogs trailing gear

Today, K9 Remy, K9 Scout and I trained at  Jefferson Memorial Forest with Stephanie, K9 Jasper, K9 Aries, Nan and K9 Jack.  This was a new area for all of us and as we laid the trail I was thrilled to stumble upon a small pond.  Ponds create very interesting scent conditions and problems.  We laid a three split trail.  And as I walked alone, I saw a pair of blue birds.  They stayed with us all day, a soothing presence of soft blue and tan.  When I wasn't watching a dog work, I was watching the blue birds. I thank them for sharing their day with us.
