This morning I was loaded into the car to go to the barn - a VERY good sign. My tracking gear was in the car and I was psyched!
After Sandi did her barn chores we hit the road to Sanford, NC to meet our tracking coach Gretchen Stephenson. She finished her AKC CT tracking title this winter with one of her Weims, Obie. Gretchen was one of our first teachers in tracking.
We met at a large park, which was mostly under water thanks to the previous 5 days of steady rain.

great job. I didn't even really mind my article
indication in the water.
