I started full time in the fire service in 1983. The fire service gives you 48 hours on duty and 96 hours off duty.
Planning for my retirement, I looked for something I could do to earn a supplemental income and work for myself.
I started my own business, Wilderness Web Design , building web sites. Currently I maintain several web sites. Several of those sites are for labrador breeders and/or trainers. Some of those sites date back to 1996, when I was first introduced to field trials and taking action pictures of my client's dogs.
I had no idea what field trials were or what these wonderful dogs were capable of doing.
In December of 2001 I lost my Springer spaniel, (NAN). I had been taking pictures of a client's pups for her web site, Burns Hot Labs, just 1 week before I lost Nan. Little did I know I was taking pictures of my next dog, Burns Purple Rose.
