First, let me say it’s refreshing to know that your Golden is kept indoors, not chained or fenced outside. That’s a whole different topic! I do, however, disagree with ‘everyone’ who tells you she will ‘get over’ her separation anxiety. That is not likely to happen without several changes in her lifestyle.

Playing mistake free is difficult, against a quality team like Burt Lake NMCA Eagles mistakes can prove painful. The Clare Pioneer varsity soccer team was soundly defeated 7-0 Thursday night in its home opener, as the Eagles capitalized on some Pioneer errors. The Pioneers struggled to control the ball and make passes. Clare was held to just one shot on goal.
