Some people have a connection with their dog that not only they feel, but everyone around them feels. This is how it was with Geri and Focus.
They had a connection that can't be denied. On the agility course and off. It was obvious that Focus' world revolved around Geri and Geri adored her Focus.
I know a part of Geri died today and part of me, albeit smaller, died with the loss of Focus too.
