The odds were against Stump, the ten-year-old Sussex Spaniel, who won the 133rd annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show. AGAINST the ODDS:For one thing STUMP is OLD, a senior in dog years – 10. He re-emerged from retirement after taking a 5 year hiatus from the show ring (Stump won the sporting group in Westminster in 2004). No purpose, no energy, no p’zazz. Poor Stump, a champion at heart, went a wastin’. He spent 19 long, sad days in a pet hospital. Once recovered, Stump hung tight with his handler, Scott Sommer, living the dog’s life! STUMP LONGS FOR THE GREEN CARPET: Five days before this show, Sommer took Stump for one last walk on the green carpet at the Garden. And WOWZER! The old Stump returned, strutting and panting with style. Ears a floppin’. Walking like a champion, happy energy soaring. And, as they say, the rest is DOGstory!Vegas odds expert John Avello, who compiled odds for this year’s Westminster show, gave Stump, the Sussex spaniel odds of 275-to-1 to win it all. Stump proved that attitude reigns supreme. Age is merely a number. And if your ears are floppy and cute enough, you’re a winner no matter.LIFE LESSONS LEARNED FROM A DOG:

  • If Stump can, YOU CAN! (Not win the Westminster; but WIN!!!)
  • Take REALITY and toss it out the window. Odds – shmodds!
  • YOU make your own rules!
  • EXPERIENCE matters; age can trump youth!
  • CLAIM WHAT’S YOURS!!!
  • Be the winner you are; follow your heart, your star, your bliss! Be inspired!Spread the word … NOT the icing!Janice———————————————————————————–Janice Taylor is a Life & Wellness Coach, specializing in weight loss, reinvention, transformation & happiness, author, seminar leader and 50-pound-BIG-Time-LOSER!
