Finally the DOR gets it!

I got the DOR in the spring of 2008.  I was looking for the owner I always wanted.
When I first met her I realized she had been started fairly well, but she had a lot of refining left to do.  I believed that with time, understanding, training, love, and support that she had the potential to be my dream owner.
We started our journey and have had many adventures.  There were misunderstandings, accidents, illnesses, and potential situations that could have cost one of us our life.  Through it all I kept as level a head as a little appy could and promised her all the time she needed.  But we still had one big sticking point in our relationship...TRUST.  I needed her complete and total trust for her to become my dream DOR.
This weekend I took her to a clinic at the beach.  I believed the clinician was the one who could solve this issue for us.  At the end of the clinic I left with the DOR that I wanted.  I have my dream DOR, turns out I always did!  I knew we had finally got where I wanted to be when she was loping me down the beach with abandon and laughing happily.  I was able to run as fast as I wanted, as long as I wanted, and as often as I wanted!
Now we can finally move on to refining our skills.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

Not only did you get the DOR of your dreams, you got some R&R at the beach. Quite a deal if you ask me. - Margy

Loved this story, especially the vision on you and the DOR running down the beach full of happiness and trust for one another.
