Dogs And The Roles They Play In Our Lives

Abby, “Take the picture mom. This is my good side.”

Abby is my personal trainer. How’s that you’d ask? I have to take her for walks, outings, and running so being active because of Abby is an understatement.

Abby, “Always buckle up!”

Abby is my traveling companion. We went to Montreal and Quebec last year and she did wonderful.

Abby, “Mom, it’s dinner time. Let’s go.”

Abby makes me laugh. She looks a bit serious, but she is really a funny girl.

Our dogs play many roles in our lives, and the imperfect human that I am sometimes forget this important detail, but Abby is always there to remind me about it. Aren’t I a lucky person?

Seminar in Plymouth, MA

Beautiful day for sightseeing.

Yesterday, I conducted a seminar in Plymouth, MA and we were able to do some sightseeing prior to it.  This was my first time in this area and it was beautiful to say the least.

Abby, “Mom, that looks like a giant kibble”

Before starting my seminar, I took Abby for a walk so she can socialize with people, and see new things.  Yes, she was very interested in the giant kibble.

Abby, “Hello everybody.” Abby greeted everybody with lots of enthusiasm.

I conduct seminars mostly from home, but I also choose outdoor places depending on: subject matter, weather, amount of people, etc.  The day was gorgeous.

Abby, “This is how a dog should meet people, with all paws on terra firma.”

The four people in my seminar had specific questions, therefore I tailored our time together to answer questions that pertained to barking, walking, meeting a dog properly and avoiding a bite from such dog, senior dogs, etc.  Abby, of course, was my assistant.  After I finished my session with them, we walked back to our car, we were getting hungry, to head home and rewarded ourselves by having a delicious dinner.  How was your weekend?
