Snow Cute!

People often say, "Wow! You've really done a great job with him. It must have been hard." Honestly, over the last year-and-a-half that we've been rehabilitating our ex-mill dog, Bill, there have been times when I thought he was never going to become a "dog." When he sat in his bed for three months and cowered each time I tried to walk him, I thought, "Maybe Bill would be happier with an older person who isn't active."

I'm so glad I persevered. Days like today make it all worthwhile. Toby, our foster, opted to stay in the car when we arrived at the dog park. But Bill had a blast! (photo credits: Dennis Duffy. Bill's got a fan club. I wish my parent's liked me as much as they like him!).

One tough cookie!

I never thought my professional career would lead to "Dog Tilt-A-Whirl Operator"

  1. Oh, MAN, that looks like a fun time! I'm so envious of your snow.

    Cowering to tilt-a-whirl. As a pro dog trainer, I know what it takes, and I'm so proud. No one would ever suspect that he isn't a normal dog, because now, thanks to all your hard work, he's living a normal life.

    We must get you some more readers to inspire!
