Something is missing ..

(Jane in her truck - taken with my iPhone)

We head out tonight for the Training Troop Halloween Trial. One of my fav's. On top of running in a great Trial, they have a Halloween Costume contest, and I've been slaving for 2 weeks getting them together :) I might have just topped the Wizard of Oz from Last year ....

(Yes I am one of those people who dresses up her dogs, and I am OK with it)

I am sad and I can't help but tear up knowing Jane won't be there with me. It was hard enough only filling out entries for 2 dogs. But it is now hitting me that she is retired. She only ran in 4 or 5 trials a year, and this was one of them. I know it is for the best, and I have to keep thinking that.

It would be cruel and unusual punishment to drag her 2.5hrs, dress her up for 10 minutes and sit around doing nothing for 2 days. So I have a replacement at the trial for Jane ... her name is Wicca :)

So Jane is staying at home with her dad, and word is she gets to go for lots of Truck Rides and even gets to go into work with him!!

Stay tuned for photos of this Year's Halloween Masterpiece!!!

Jane looks quite happy to be hanging out in her truck.

I can't wait to see what costumes you came up with this year. Good luck at the trial!

Hey Sarah totally know what you are saying it likely harder for us when they retire than for them.
Jane will have a great weekend at home...and can't wait to see what your creative mind has come up with this year.
