It was the mildest of winters that I can remember – one that saw only a powder-dusting of snow and freakishly high sustained temperatures. With just a week left until the vernal equinox and the arrival of cosmological spring, the thoughts of most dog lovers – especially those with pooches that compete in AKC-sanctioned shows – are focused like laser beams on warmer weather and gaudy ribbons.
For her part, the lovely and ever-gracious Nicole is ramping up the diet, exercise and training routine for Cordell’s Maximus of County Line – known affectionately to my faithful readers as Max the Wonder Dog (or Frankenpooch). As for me, I’m getting the camera ready for another year of the Mad Max Chronicles.
