Agility class was rained out and aside from the start of our Rally Advanced class, I have no real Marge news to talk about. It's been hot and humid, and I'll be bogged down with school stuff until Thursday. So, I'll take this time to talk about someone else who is special in my life.
Tomorrow, June 23, is my third anniversary dating Louie.
I'm not a particularly sappy/romantic person person, but everyone should know how good Louie has been to me. He lives an hour away, so when he's not at college, he'll drive to my house once a week (sometimes more) to see me. Before he got to college, we saw each other only once a week. Before he drove, he commuted three hours through crowded NYC and Long Island public transportation to get to my house.
On top of all of that, he has taken me to numerous agility trials, training classes, run-throughs, and the like, since I have yet to get my scaredy self behind the wheel on the highway. He offers to. If not for him, I would have only gone to one trial so far - the one that I drove to myself, the one that was 20 measly minutes from my house. I guess you can say that he has made a lot of things possible for me.
Marge likes him, too. Thank goodness. He's just about the only guy that she likes. She has good taste. (And he's a good listener - the reason she likes him so much is because he allowed her to interact with him on her own terms.)
He tags along with me when I go for walks, go to training class, check my blog, and all of the other Marge stuff that I do while he's visiting. Most of it, he even enjoys, except Rally - it's too slow for him. He has made my interests his own interests.
He even attempted to create his own agility course the other day on Clean Run Course Designer. How adorable is that? Check out the 15-16 obstacle discrimination! (Who wants to tackle THIS course?)
We have a happy, mature relationship. It's amazing to see how we've grown together over time. I am lucky to have someone like this in my life. Thanks, Louie, for all that you do!
