On Wednesday Nights, Petey and I go to Agility class. Sometimes it’s been a long day at work, and the traffic is awful, and I sigh. Then. . . I walk into Sportsmens’s and smell the mats. There is an energy in the air. The people are glad to see each other, and the dogs are happy to see each other. It is one of my favorite times of the week. Thank you Sportsmen’s for such a happy place!
