  • I spend a great deal of my limited free time in the company of dogs. My curly-coated retrievers and I compete regularly in agility, field events, tracking obedience and conformation. My vacation time is typically spent traveling to Finland to visit friends and admire the curly-coats abroad or attending the World Dog Show wherever it happens to be held.
