buff colored cocker spaniel in the water next to a pierYears ago I attended seminars and conferences for small business owners. The inevitable inspirational speaker would invariably talk about how if you do what you love you will be successful.

Last week Annie discovered fish. She has spent hours every day watching for and stalking fish. Of all my dogs she was the one most tentative around water. After nine years Annie seems to have gotten in touch with her inner spaniel. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so happy and engaged. From a dog who used to daintily walk in shallow water she’s now leaping off the dock to pounce on fish.

Help your dog find something that rocks their world. There’s no telling what hidden talents might be waiting to emerge.
