Thanks again to EVERYONE that came to the Circle L Arena to celebrate the life of Lark. I don’t think I had ever been so nervous to put on a trial…. Wondering if I remembered everything, was I going to do things the way Lark would have wanted them done, was I going to meet the expectations of the awesome GotDog? exhibitors…..
My nerves were over ridden by so much joy as well as sadness throughout the weekend. Both of Larks dogs that were trialing were there and ran their little hearts out for her. Pamela and Niners did great as well as Derby running with me…. It was such an honor to let her play once again….
We had a GREAT BBQ Saturday evening with lots of laughs. Lark loved BBQs.
Our raffle and donatoins that came in raised over $1260 for Larks Memorial Fund!
Jean McCreight sponsored the “Lark Pollari Memorial Highest Scoring Rescue Dog” and our recipient was Rachelle Jensen and Tikvah. The list of rescues running was a complete page….. Lark loved rescue dogs and I am sure she would have loved reading that long list that were participating in her trial.
