The Place I Thought I Wanted!

SUMMARY: But alas, the time is not right.
Workin' Paws is for sale--alas for the agility community, unless another agility person buys it. They host seminars and fun matches and ASCA trials and much more.

And alas for me. It's in an area I've thought about buying into in the past. It's a gorgeous site with beautiful views.   It's agility-ready!  And, if I could sell my house for what it recently appraised for, I could probably afford to buy it. BUT.

Here's what I've learned from knowing agility couples who own and run agility facilities: It's a frigging lot of work and money. And I'm not keeping up with the maintenance (let alone improvements) on my own, much smaller place. And I have only one income. So, alas, the time is not right for this for me.

However, if you want an agility place in Hollister, please buy it so the rest of us can keep using it!
