Dog friends are the best!

I received this photo recently and was reminded why I love dog training - it's so much about the friends you make along your journey :)

The photo is of the decorated cake that my training friends surprised me with at one of our training club meetings shortly after Jackson earned his UDX. The relationhip you build with your dog through obedience training is great, but having friends to share it with enriches it all the more!

You are absolutely right! And what a fun cake!

I love the cake! That's so cool they were able to work so much in.

I also appreciate my dog friends. One thing that I like about them is that they understand the small victories. When I have a less than stellar run in agility or obedience, they understand if I'm like, "well she didn't do ___, but she did ____ so well!" When other non-dog people are there, they seem to be so black and white. Either you qualified or didn't. And they don't get how you can be happy about NQ'ing, or even worse, how some NQ's can be better than a bad Q!
