Golden Brodie barks “Give Your Dog a Job”

Ever since I was a pup…I have been working on being a  well-behaved dog…I’ve been at this for three years and it never ends. I’ve also learned to listen and follow my instincts…the retrieving part…so I get things…yes I do understand quite a bit…but I mean I go and “get things”…like my toys.

She says “Go get your toy!”… and off I go…retrieve the toy and bring it for a playtime.  I’m also still working on calming down…goal in mind… become a Therapy Dog…so I’ve been practicing outside of my local hospital…learning to take my place…be calm…and just do nothing…that’s right nothing…just sit or lay down and accept the gentle hands that pet me…It’s my job…hey somebody has to do it.

We all need a job…yes even dogs…certain dogs are happiest when they have a purpose…consider teaching your dog how to help you with chores around the house…and of course…don’t forget the tricks!  

 

Brodie wants Lulu to visit the White House

Transition…the transition of one sitting president to the president-elect taking the position of POTUS 2017 began this morning.  Regardless of party…regardless of political opinions…these two men came together in a fine way…they both agreed…we all can make our world a better place…united.

Having said that…with goldenness in my heart..read about Lulu.  She is a golden doodle therapy dog who helps folks with the grieving process…by just simply being there.  Grieving takes on many forms…not just in death but also during times of immense change…not knowing what to expect.  The golden in me thinks Lulu and dogs like her could help many peeps during this transition period.

Paws up and many blessing on Lulu.
