A sad time......

Two weeks ago was a year since I lost My sweet Reaga, I was struggling with this day as I never have quite come to terms with it. The next day the unthinkable happened, my beautiful cat, who has lived here 15 years, was hit by a car and left dead. This has hit both me and Jay very hard, and I only now feel able to post something about it because of Bernadette's horrendous pain and sadness she is going through. I found this poem and want to post it in memory of Queenie, Reaga and the beautiful Hex....I know that god had more important things for you to all do, but we all miss you terribly.... Run free and be happy

I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

Fallen off the edge of the world!!!!

Sorry for the lack of posts!
Well we've been away nearly the whole of August at various shows (I will post videos, pictures and results later!)
We've had a great time away, the dogs have been great, and we've had A LOT of laughs!
Now I have to actually do some hard work to make up for the time here are the next few months plans....

I'm away in Wales looking after my mum's over October, so from the 7th Oct - 30th Oct I will be available for private agility lessons up there.

The following will be held at Many Tears Animal Rescue can be found at
Cwmlogin House
SA14 7HB

11th October-training day covering course handling and analysing, motivation, contacts, weaves (entries) and obstacle discrimination.

12th October-Pre-competition training. For dogs who are almost at the competition age. Covering weaves (channel available), contacts, motivation etc

the following will be held at Indoor sand school. Chafford Farm,
Chafford Lane,

22nd November-grade 5-7 training day. Covering course walking/handling, contacts, weave entries and motivation

29th November-Taster Day, for people and dogs who have never done agility.

30th November-Anju Agility Simulated show.......This is a fun and friendly show open to all abilities……at our show we encourage training in the ring, and will allow you to use food and toys!

The way it works:
You will get 2 goes at the same agility course and 2 goes at the same jumping course, which means you can train one round and go for the next if you wish. All the courses will be set at a “nice” level.

If you use toy’s or treats in one round that will be classed as a “not for competition round”, if you do it without aids then there are rosettes and prizes to be won!

If you wish to run your large dog over small or medium that is fine (we are very chilled out!), but to keep it fair on the smalls and mediums competing you will be not for competition.
It will be judged as grades 1-4 small, medium and large and then 5-7 small, medium and large.

Open to dogs 16 mths and above.

There will be tea, coffee and cakes available.

£10 per dog (four runs) 10am start.

13th December-Anju Agility Christmas show-As before

4th January 2009-Anju Agility New year show-as before
