Often with living from a space of protection or doubt, it can feel threatening to the nervous system to allow joy in. A commitment I’ve made to myself is to sit and breathe until I journey from my head to my heart. Until I can feel the joy that lives in my core always, my light, and allow that to shine through me. I see how much standing in my own way has become a pattern. I sit in gratitude for the beauty of seeing these parts of me that are still asleep, operating as they once did. When I allow myself to feel the calmness and true love I feel within myself, I feel forever grateful for animals as I feel so safe to love them. Their very existence opens the hearts of so many.
Koda has had a very eventful past two days with us. We have been working on focusing on her handler around other dogs. Her biggest weakness. If she could play with her friends all day she would. Everything needs a balance though. •
At first there was a lot of whining and pulling towards each other. Once Koda started to settle down after about 10 minutes they both started to use their nose to get to know each other. •
I then got both of their attention and started working some basic obedience. Sit and Down and follow me. It was messy at first and we all made mistakes but that’s why training is so much fun. It’s always a learning experience and how can these cute pups not make you laugh. •
By the end of our lesson, both girls were rocking the walk and Koda was giving me her undivided attention. It takes a lot of patience, understanding and practice when it comes down to it. A lot of mistakes will be made and that is ok! If we never made mistakes, how would we ever get better. You don’t learn from winning all the time. Some of you best lessons are learned when you fail. So don’t be afraid to fail, what happens if you win?
[ 2013 ] I hired humonster as my butler when I was 8 weeks old, in 2012. It was a risky choice given her overflowing party schedule and young age of nineteen. Well, she REALLY took her new role to heart and started bringing me EVERYWHERE, college classes included. Was it allowed? No. Did she let it stop her? Nope. In this picture I am taking the lead on another group project. You’re welcome, humonster. Bachelor of Science on me.
