A superior rider uses superior judgment to avoid situations that require superior skill.

Her ears are the same size, the right one is just slightly droopy at the tip.

From start to finish Hearts for Paws really took care of us. Can't say enough good things about the entire event / process.

I can’t get a good read on her. Not sure she likes me. She might just be bringing me closer for the kill.

She’s got the basics down: sit, stay, come, bring me your toy (she knows 3 by individual names), hasn't peed inside for a few weeks. She’s accepted the feeding routine of sitting until she’s told to eat. In fact we don’t even have to say ‘sit, stay’ anymore. When she see’s us preparing her food she just plops on her butt and waits for ‘OK’ before approaching her bowl. She hasn’t damaged or destroyed anything except for chewing through one harness. We’re always watching her and know she could get into anything though.

She’s quite affectionate for a malinois and loves to snuggle with us.

It was fun to see her grow from chasing me from behind, to leading me as I ran, to taking shortcuts, to taking a different route to catch me.

Your views on any given subject are the sum of the media that you take in, scaled to the weight of the credibility of the source that provides it, seen through a lens of your own values, goals, and achievements.

Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

Wheel horsepower is just crank horsepower after taxes.

Treat a feral woman with respect, once trust is earned she may start bringing you food.

Started researching leash attachments for my bike to safely exercise my young pit mix foster (he's more a hunter than a retriever, not coordinated enough to catch a frisbee or ball like my dog, d'oh). Anyway, in the process, came across videos of "bikejoring" and am now, of course, hooked on watching doggos run. Go,go,go! Check out the Mal they race half way through this vid! Something for the adorbz youngster above to get training in maybe?
