To my mother: Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I love you and miss you till it hurts ... every day.
To all of you who are lucky enough to still have your mothers in your lives, please hug them and love them, even if only for today. I would give my left arm to see and hold mine one more time. It's been six years since I lost my mom and there has been nothing that has come close to filing the gaping hole it's left in my heart.
Had a few instinct tests yesterday. One of the dogs was distantly related to my Zip dog. His name is Finn. He did a very nice job, rated his sheep well, falls into balance naturally, is a bit more upright and not as intense as Zip, but will do well for Nancy. We'll put him in the bigger pasture next weekend.
