We are each thankful for some things today, so we thought we would post those things for you.
Actually, this post was my idea. Remember back in August Mom was going to retire me from all dog sports and then we found help with a new instructor? Well, I’ve made a ton of progress in those seven or eight months. Mom works with me on my sniffing every morning before breakfast. I had some special sessions in my class because I was not performing in class but that was back in February. Guess what happened yesterday? I was the best dog in my class in three of my four searches. Mom says it blew her socks off! To top it off, my instructor messaged Mom after class to say that I was super awesome and Mom and I are doing so well with our training. That means a lot to both of us as she is one of the best sniff instructors in the area!
I’m always a thankful hound because I have a pretty decent home, and tons of opportunities in life. My sister Olivia is also something to be thankful for because we have so much fun together. We get really good and healthy food, and I’m thankful I have finally started to enjoy eating which sounds weird but for most of my life I was not interested in food or treats very much.
This will be no surprise, but I am thankful today because I get to go to a scent work trial on the weekend. I enjoy all my sports but the nose work and scent work sports are my very favorite ones. They are also the ones I am best at. It will be a really fun weekend and I sure hope I do well. I get to compete in Masters for the first time. The trial is local, so we get to sleep in our own beds and there isn’t any travel involved.
What are you thankful for today?
