Women & Their Dogs

There’s always a lot out there about men and their dogs, and we’ve all heard the common and much-loved saying, “a boy and his dog.” What about the girls? We love our pups just as much as the next guy.

I can prove it.

In previous posts, I mentioned a labor of love I took on pro bono for the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA). It was a lot of work, but I’m really pleased with the final result: each month, the organization is publishing one of my articles in their very nicely-done magazine. Each of my articles features a woman and her hunting dog at various stages in their NAVHDA training journey. Sharing these stories is a way I can give back to a uniquely fantastic non-profit that benefits so many people– boys, girls, young, old.

It’s an organization that brings people of all walks of life together– people who share a common interest. And while hunting may be at the core of it for some folks, for me it’s about the dogs. It’s about being with other animal and nature lovers. It’s about meeting someone I never would have met otherwise.

Here are a few of my recent pieces (find them in their entirety on NAVHDA’s website– click on VHD Library). I hope they inspire you to commit to a new goal, or to try something new. Something outside of your comfort zone.
