A tribute to Dylan ~
Holy Moly, my
best bud and most patient teacher is 10 today. It almost makes me
tear up! They say time flies when you're having fun, but I had no
idea that 10 years could go by so quickly. Dylan has been my soulmate
(Kevin accuses us of sharing a brain since we're always "in
sync"), my teacher and just the most loyal and undemanding
friend a person could have. Dylan is one of the gentlest, kindest
boys I know. Although he does have an affinity to smother people with
kisses! He has been patient through all of my fumblings with
obedience and agility (goodness knows we'd have finished our VAATCH
by now if I hadn't gotten lost on so many courses!). He waited for
his turn to shine when Jessie was sick and needed all of my
attentions and he's been there for me every time I cry at some soppy
movie or commercial or even just because. He's also there to join my
in laughter and in afternoon naps on the livingroom floor! Dylan has
taught me that laughter is a gift and that sometimes a good chuckle
is much more valuable than a qualifying score. I have had more judges
tell me that I had the nicest Rottweiler they'd ever met and that he
was just "perfect" even when he was licking kids in the
face across the gates when he was supposed to be with me heeling! The
judges also joined in our chuckles whenever he would take THEM his
glove instead of bringing it back to me! Dylan was able to make some
of the "sharpest pencils around" soften up a bit. I
remember one trial with a judge who had a reputation for being a
stickler and not always the most fair, trying to coyly entice Dylan
to get his dumbell (he even whispered "Get it!" under his
breath. Dylan had decided that resting his chin on the high jump and
wiggling his bum was a better bet for the laughter votes that day.
When Dylan started barking playfully at the judge instead of
"getting it" the judge laughed and apologized that he
really couldn't help me anymore. He did tell me what a wonderful dog
I had though. (if I could count all the times I'd heard that from
judges I'd be out of fingers and toes!)
Happy Birthday and cheers to many more years of laughter and just
sheer silliness! Thanks for always being there big guy, I love ya!
