Hello and welcome to my first real blog! I mean I had one years ago but didn’t really have anything interesting to write about so I lost track of it and inevitably forgot my passwords. But! Finally I have something that I’m actually excited about, and want to share with other people. If you’re reading this, then you probably know that I’m attending this year’s (2017) World Sheepdog Finals in the Netherlands, along with competing in the Belgian International Open and the Dutch International Open. This blog will serve as my way to keep all of my supporters informed on my journey as I prepare for and compete in these trials. I’m really excited to have this opportunity and I hope that you all enjoy it as I try my best to take you on this globe-trotting excursion! Thank you again! And much love!
Also, I’ve set up a GoFundMe page to help offset the expenses. If you feel the desire to kick a few dollars my way then just click this link Get Derek to the Netherlands. No donation is too small (or too large! HAHA)
