Who We Are With the Dog
Click on the picture for a better look. I drew it in the middle of the night, so be kind.
Here is my insight of the week, friends:
When it comes to self-discipline, who we are with our dogs is who we are with ourselves.
Do we struggle mightily to cut back the kibble when Fuzz is looking a bit plump, or do our best intentions fold in the presence of the treat-loving beast?
Do we take time to do little training exercises that would make Sweetums just the tiniest bit more behaviorally fit, or do we figure the world can make room for the jumping, begging and howling?
Me? I am acquainted with self-discipline, but we could always be better friends.
