And again I'm talking dogs. In March 2015 a good friend from grade school looked me up on Facebook and saw me whining that I needed a power wheelchair and couldn't afford one. Medicare/Insurance says if I can hobble around my tiny house I don't need a chair. I can walk 20-30 steps and stand for a couple of minutes, so I don't qualify. The grade school friend had her dad's power chair sitting in her garage since his death and she offered it to me. She lives in Georgia; I'm in Houston. Biloxi MS is about 400 miles from each of us so she drove west, I drove east, and we met there. She and her husband got it into my van, and we headed back home.

I now run Kaylee in flyball tournaments myself (she earned her Flyball Master Champion last month) and Candy is starting her Obedience career with me beside her. Kaylee is being resistant to advanced obedience, but I'm still working with her. If I did it right, a picture of Kaylee and I in the flyball lane follows. It was taken the day after we got her FMCH.

I'm so glad to hear that you got your power chair, especially through an old personal connection. Kaylee looks like a go-getter.

Hello! Good to see you. And that is awesome about your chair - we have the same issues over here in the UK; very strict rules which make no sense at all.

And awesome photo. <3
