It's easy to be strong when everything is going right. Anyone can be brave or tough on a good day. BUT, when everything goes wrong and a situation worse than you can even imagine happens, then you find out about someone's character.
On a horrific morning, Scott Derrick showed character and strength. At only 21 years of age, he braved the attacks on our beagles. He dealt with the loss of his little brother's dog that he was entrusted. He dealt with the fear of a pack of wolves and seeing one only 40 yards away. He dealt with the loss of his hunting companion, Show Me.
Although Tuesday was by far the worst day I have ever had with beagles, I did find something to take from it. I found respect for a friend who showed character in the hardest of conditions.
