As usual, Tess is my lapwarmer. Before she was retired, she would sit in my lap and we would plot our run strategy. After she was retired, if she went to a trial, she would sit in my lap and be an armchair quarterback. She loves to sit in your lap and get petted, get treats and offer her opinion on the runs.
Here we are at the Feb 7 trial at Whidbey Island. I wasn't running her but she kept my lap warm.
