Started training professionally in 1963 and as of 7/1/12 I have officially retired. It has been a fantastic trip and we are still boarding dogs and our Pierce dog chastises me daily to keep me in line so all is good.

I have a bad left ankle broke many years ago stepping off a horse (always thought the horse was suppose to step in a gopher hole) and a bad right knee from motorcycle accident, each year more pain and I am not into the replacing of any body parts. (stubborn started with my own and will end it that way)

A lady called 6/25/12 and said she had a 9 month old GSD wild as the pure driven snow, when I inquired about dog's weight she said 115 lbs, I knew it was time to hang it up because instead of the dog it was the ankle/knee thing that popped into my head. My wife has been getting on my case the last 2 yrs so it is a done deal.

Somebody on DF just PM-ed me to ask about rates so I thought I should just mention it on DF.

What is this crazy world coming to, I would have thought my training skills/stories/etc would have scared most away. I guess maybe I should get my own TV show :)
