Sad News & Legend Needs a Home

I have some sad news to share about a member of the Berner community -- Vicky Whitney has died of a stroke that followed a rather routine surgery. Vicky lived in Bozeman, Montana for decades but had moved to Colorado just a few years ago to be closer to her two children and their families. A happy, positive, cheerful person, Vicky will be sorely missed and I think all of us are just stunned.

Thursday Good Luck Wishes

Fun weekend ahead for members of our community -- Good luck to Karsten, Maddie, Jumar and anyone else who is evaluating their training at shows, trials, and tests this weekend :) Nikko J sends a high five to all for the strong work...

Life in the Gray Zone & Photos

A couple of weeks ago a student in my ethics class told me that he appreciated how I teach because I clearly value all perspectives -- what a wonderful compliment that was. Another student shared that she found the class frustrating because she wanted clear answers to the ethical challenges we discuss, and I never seem to offer any of those; I consider her angst more positive feedback about the class. Those two things are related -- when we value different perspectives it is often hard to see one right answer (darn it!).

R.I.P. & Pics

As you may know, we bought a new Toyota Sienna van in the Spring. Our older one, a 2007, had nearly 250,000 miles and while there were no issues with it, I did not feel comfortable driving long distances in it anymore. But while I have many flaws, I do believe that loyalty is a character trait I possess in ample amounts and so I could not bear to give up the old van. And so I sang,
