There is nothing more awesome than an early morning bike ride. The path that I ride is especially peaceful in the wee morning hours. It's just me, my bike, and Nature. It's a great time for me to sort out my thoughts, regain peace, and energize myself as I get ready to take on new challenges. There is nothing quite as fun as soaring on your bike, listening to the sounds of the woods, the lake, and the prairie.

Happy 11th birthday to the original little blue dog.... Neelah! While I have retired her from agility, she is still very active and torments me daily with balls and frisbees. She is my first dog ever, in my almost-40 years of existence, and what a fun ride it has been! Not only did we learn agility together (we were both newbies!) but we managed a MACH, a PDCH, and a couple of NATCHs. And while I know a heck of lot more now than I did then, I wouldn't change a thing. We have had a great journey together, and I hope it continues for many more years. She is still sassy and naughty, and she is showing Pixel the ropes. She occasionally plays with her, but not like she used to play with Asha. She loves going for walks, and she still loves to play agility in the backyard. She still weaves like a pro and sometimes does the teeter all by herself, just to show off. She has a fan club too.... everyone knows Neelah. The everlasting puppy. I always get asked how old my puppy is, and now it is a running joke every time I bring her out to a trial to hang out. Today Neelah will be spoiled with a trip to 3 Dog Bakery so she can run around and show off and pick out some bakery goods. She always loves a Mommy 'n me day! Happy birthday Neelah ! AKA Panini, Dooey, Neelah-Doo, Blueberry, and Naughty Nee Nee!
