Elly and I were out the other day in one of our favorite open spaces. I was thinking how funny it was that my mostly white dog was wearing a pink 'camo' jacket and how she certainly couldn't disappear into the brush.  I was just getting ready to shoot a quick vid to show the irony of pink camo and then, she disappeared into the brush!!!

I was a little surprised she took off after the rabbit because it wasn't moving at first.  I was really surprised that she took off into the brush and crashed through it a few times... she has never done that.

I stopped her because I noticed some people with a couple off leash dogs heading our way.

Elly, besides being one of the fastest tripawds I have seen, you are absolutely so adorable in your pink jacket! 

I don't think I have seen the video from your last competition? Would love to see you doing your magic with your nose!❤

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!

Elly is sooooo fast!!   OMD!  She doesn't  miss a step and she maintains  her focus the  entire time!  Nosework at the highest level!
