I am sooooo not a morning person, so this just illustrates the DEPTH of my devotion to that dog! I found someone who wants to work his dog at that ungodly hour (and to be fair it is rapidly getting too hot here to do much in the evening) and we're going to work together. His dog is working on Master Hunter, and Sam is trying for Junior, but he says we can work together without any difficulty.
Today was the first day. Can't really say how bad it's going to be because I woke up at 3, and was never able to go back to sleep! I have to be at work at 8, but we were finished shortly after 7, and I got to work with no problem. I feel pretty lousy I can tell you, but I don't suppose lack of sleep ever actually killed anyone. However, I may be the first.
