Working Dog Diary is a series of essays which reflect on the stockdog journey of Kay Spencer, the owner of Working Aussie Source. Previous chapters are located at the bottom of this page:
This is my goodbye. It's been a ride, but it's time -- it's more than time, to take my leave. I am looking ahead, to wonderful new things, to spaciousness, to serving in new creative ways, to adventure.
First, I want to say goodbye to all the people who have read this decade of essays on stockdogs with enjoyment, who occasionally wrote to tell me so, who gave me the benefit of the doubt when I expressed too intransigent an opinion. I wrote because I am a writer, and because writing is incomplete without an audience. I thank you all, for your attention and for your generous understanding.
Second, I am bidding farewell to Working Aussie Source. It is passing into other hands now. It's quite bittersweet to let go of Working Aussie Source, it has been a part of my life for so long. Naturally, it will change to fit the new owners' needs and ideas. I hope it will continue to be what I brought it into existence for, a place which supports and celebrates the working Australian Shepherd, the original ranch and farm dog of the West.
