Comes With The Territory or Ode to Holley
Enter the Handler! I knew from almost the first time I met Holley in Maryland, April 2009 that she was the one IF I wanted a handler. I saw Holley again in Long Beach in June 2009. She and Piper won the National Specialty. Daphne was the first Award of Merit. The next day at the 35 year Jubilee Specialty Daphne won the breed. Holley and I joked around a bit about trading wins that weekend and a bit of camaraderie began to develop between us. I remember Holley telling me how much she loved Piper and that Piper slept in the bed and other things that piqued the interest of this Pet Person. I remember asking Holley if when she was done with Piper would she consider handling Daphne and she said yes.
