Dogs are some of the most thankful creatures I know. They don’t expect much, but when they get anything- attention, breakfast, a treat or a ball tossed- they light up with unbridled joy. They’ve been given a gift, and they enjoy it to its’ fullest. In Agility, my dog is grateful for the time I spend with him, the extra ear ruffles and puppy drumming. He gives wags, kisses, and his absolute best to do what I want him to do.
What my dog doesn’t know, of course is that he is the gift that I am thankful for.
This Thanksgiving, take a minute to be as grateful for your dog as he or she is for you.
