Here it is, Thanksgiving already. My favorite part of the holiday has always been the going around the table, each person naming at least one thing for which they are thankful. There are a number of, appropriately, dog related things for which I am thankful.
I’m thankful that the universe delivered Chico into my life even though I didn’t really want him, immensely thankful that we easily found our way to a philosophy of dog training and a dog trainer both of which are just right for both of us, and that I could repair the lobster toy one more time:
I’m thankful for friends who support me in my work with Chico, for the new friends I made through canine agility, for my family who stand behind this dog even though he isn’t theirs any more, for all the beautiful places I see walking Chico, and for the chance to find out that I really, really, really needed a dog.
