In honor of a whole event where I'm only running my step-child Trig (who I co-own now in order to run at Tryouts), here are some pictures of her. I don't feature her much here on my blog because even though I've been running her since last November and we're trying out for the world team, I don't really have a great bond with her. She likes me, and I like her, but we don't belong to each other. I would happily run her if I made the team, and feel that we are a reliable pair, but if we don't make it I won't be horribly upset either. My future with the AKC World Team belongs with Strafe.
