A week and a half ago I needed someone to cover my HelpLine hours and Sally graciously volunteered.  All that she demanded, I mean requested in exchange was a couple of Elly videos, one random and one Nose Work.  Of course I need to keep Sally happy! And I’m going to need coverage again in a couple weeks smiley4

Me and Elly were at a Nose Work Trial (spoiler alert- we rocked it!, more to come) but those videos won’t be available for a couple more weeks.  This video is from last Friday when I took Elly to my old neighborhood where the golf course is just open space now. 

I hope you enjoy this one Sally!

Look at her go! She could teach my little 4 legged Max a thing or two. I hope we get to see a video of her doing her nose work!

She looks so happy!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!
