As a member of The Working Riesenschnauzer Federation I was asked to donate something for the auction at Schnauzerfest. But here's the thing... I'm not a member anymore. I let my membership expire this year because I'm having a hard time understanding the point. Even though I have a schnauzer I did not see even one benefit of being a member. (This is not just about the WRF, they just happen to be top of mind) I'm not interested in the politics, cliques or whisperings, there's enough of that in everyday life without adding some more voluntarily. Sometimes you have to regroup and prioritize things in life, therefore I plan on sending in my donation but that will be it.
I've decided to focus my time, energy & money on local clubs & groups... Places where I train my dogs and develop in-the-flesh friendships. As a result, even though I was toying with the idea of going to Schnauzerfest this year in Illinois, I've decided not to. There are some people I'd like to meet but it will have to wait for another time. If anyone is coming through Ontario send me an email and we'll hook up!
Can you guess who I used as my model for this drawing?
