'Kerge' and I had a very special relationship.' It started at his birth when I helped his mom bring him into the world.' It continued throughout his life as we did so much together. We started working together when he was about 6 weeks old and continued training throughout his life. He loved training ' his attitude showed how much he loved it.' He so enjoyed competing in Herding, Obedience, Agility, Rally, and Freestyle and was very successful in each of these disciplines.' Although we never competed, he also enjoyed scent work and even, in his last week of life, remembered how to alert for a scent I placed in the house. When I broke my hip in 2014, he learned to work at my pace with me on a cane and earned his RAE 2 and RAE 3 as well as 4 High Combineds in Rally while doing so. We were working on his RAE 4 when we lost him in September of 2016. His heart just quit.

Kerge loved going to my Training Center for practices and to act as a demo dog for new students, especially in Rally. Our final hurrah (although I didn't know it at the time) was to go to the AKC Rally Nationals in March of 2016.' He didn't finish at the top but received oh so many comments about what fun it was to watch him perform.' It was obvious to the observers that he loved what he
was doing!

I feel so blessed to have been able to have had him for the years we were given although they were over much too soon.
