I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Finally, WATER!!!

Stumpy and I stopped and explored the Texas Hill Country. We stayed in Wimberly Texas and spent a lot of time on the Blanco River.

Stumpy was thrilled to be swimming, again.

We're not in dirtville, anymore!

Can I go in, yet?
You have my ball, right?
I'm ready! Let's go!
What're you waiting for?
Got it!
C'mon! C'mon! Hurry up! throw it again!

We are so jealous of you right now! Ya, we got the pool but it isn't the same. So glad to see that you're having fun as always.

Happy trails!

Thanks for posting swimming photos. Up here it is still too cold for swimming and the pool next door is all covered up. I'll just have to pretend I am swimming with you (I have the post swim sun baking part covered).

It was an Oscar winning film with Daniel Day Lewis about 30 years ago.

Inside the movie he played a severely disabled boy.

…Only able to move his left foot.

Daniel had some severe behavioral problems.

He was a real handful and really frustrated.

Until that is…

One day-quite by accident- his family realized he was…


…And able to create amazing world class art work.

After that realization- everything changed.

The intelligence and gifts he had were unlocked.

His frustration and behavior problems stopped and there was an incredible Hollywood ending (a fairytale ending)

Here’s the point…

Inside your dog-there is incredible intelligence too.

I’ve seen it in hundreds of Dogs I’ve worked with.

And once you unlock that intelligence.

Most behavioral problems simply melt away.

And the bond with you and your dog grows stronger.

Sound good?

>>> Go here now to unlock your dog’s natural intelligence today.

The well behaved dog of your dreams is waiting to emerge.

Any troublesome bad behavior you’re dealing with is waiting to disappear.

Don’t put up needlessly with bad behavior a second longer.
