I've been seeing a lot of these "if I knew..." posts today, mostly regarding agility training, so I thought I'd do one for Iris. I originally adopted Iris to be my agility dog. While we did do some agility training, in the end I don't think our agility adventures had much to do with jumps or tunnels. But it did have a lot to do with building a relationship with my crazy little red dog - the dog who tried my patience, drove me tears, and made me want to scream. The dog who makes me smile every single day.
To my red dog, if I knew then what I know now, I would still choose you.
