Any Road Taken in 2009 ...

This has been a year to remember. There have been Norfolks performing successfully in activities as diverse as earthdog, tracking, obedience, agility, rally, dock diving, weight pulling and conformation ... all the while earning considerable admiration as well as titles.
Remembering the breed from the days when formal activities for 'drop eared Norwich' were limited to AKC conformation and obedience ... with a very occasional American Working Terrier Association (AWTA) trial thrown in for good measure ... it is heartening to see so many people having fun with their dogs in so many different ways.
While not everyone chooses to engage in organized activities with their Norfolks, for those who do there are myriad paths to follow.
Not to fracture Robert Frost's "A Road Not Taken" ... but for Norfolks it seems that "Any Road Taken" can lead to fun, adventure, and a chance to show their remarkably diverse talents.
Well done ... everyone ... you and your Norfolks are wonderful ambassadors for the breed. Continue your adventures in 2010!
