Chevy as a puppy.
I am thankful my friends trust me and are willing to ask me for help. Right now I have the privilege of having one of my friends dogs stay with us for the weekend. He had some family obligations that made it necessary to have Chevy stay somewhere else. The fact that he trusts me to take care of his dog really means a lot to me. Thank you.
Chevy and Sadie on Thanksgiving.Having family that is not nearly as animal/ dog focused as I am but they love me and do there best to relate and understand me. Not to say they don't love or like animals they are just a little less focused on it. But Sadie and Chevy were invited to come to Thanksgiving so they don't have to stay home alone. Thank you.

Something that always makes me happy is the dog training club I am a part of. This is a collection of people who are really fantastic. They are always happy to help or offer advice. It's really nice to have other people that are as interested in training as I am but have been doing it longer and have that experience to offer.
And there is Sadie. Sadie who introduced me to the joys of owning a pit bull.Who is my main motivation to learn more about training and caring for dogs in general. Sadie is not ashamed to express how she feels running around like a doofus in her classic Sadie squat pose. We have a lot of work to do and issues we need to train with but she is a wonderful dog and I love her so much.
I am very thankful for all the wonderful people I have in my life and I hope I do my best to show it.
