Did you guys ever read the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? If there were a week-long version of that book, that’d be my week (minus the gum in my hair, thank goodness). It started with the incident, then I had to have dental work done at 7:30 in the morning, plus today is two years from the day I was diagnosed with cancer… I could go on, but I’m sure you get it. Bad week.
So, it totally brightened my week to get an email from our buddy Erik about a BIG success he and his pup Hershey experienced this week. I’ll let him tell the story in the comments, but here’s evidence of his hard work paying off!
Which got me thinking… we talk a lot about issues and struggles. It’s super important to have those community discussions, for sure, because we can all help each other, share resources, etc. But we can also celebrate each other’s successes! And when I’m grumpy, nothing turns it around faster than focusing on the positive!
So! Share in the comments: What are you celebrating with your pup this week? Big or small, every step forward needs to be celebrated!
Here’s what I’m celebrating this week:
- Lucas and John are tackling a fun training challenge that has become a popular dog activity in the last few years. I don’t want to give it away until we have a video to share, but here’s a hint: It rhymes with foggy lancing.
- Cooper overcame his fear of a new toy. Yep. He was afraid of a toy. More on that later (because you’ll get a chance to win one!).
- And the big one: Guess how many times Lucas flipped out on Newt this week? Guess! Did you guess? If you guessed ZERO! ZERO TIMES! you’d be right!
Now, let’s celebrate YOUR successes. Big or little, let’s hear ’em! Leave your celebrations in the comments so we can all join in! Or, if your success has a pic to accompany it, please share on Facebook!
