      • Almost all of the great photos used in this website were provided by Dick Bruner, professional photographer extraordinaire and my good friend for over two decades. Dick is known around the country for his terrific action shots capturing herding dogs working, agility dogs flying, and draft horses pulling their loads at events far and wide. Dick has my sincere gratitude for helping me make this website a place where you can see real people and their dogs captured in real situations doing something they truly love.

Thanks Dick!
