Around the Campfire with Larry & Glenda Teaff
Join me in a nostalgic trip down memory lane with Larry and Glenda Teaff. This episode reminds me of the post-trial campfires surrounded with friends and full of the dog stories where legends are made! Larry and Glenda are dear friends who were there when I first got started in the dog trialing many years ago. Larry is an ASCA stockdog judge and stockdog trainer. And Glenda is his partner in crime. The two of them carry tons of knowledge of the working dogs and lines in this breed. These stories are endearing and a special documentation of the working history of the Australian Shepherd.  This is a 2-part podcast!  Looking for a working Aussie?
