You know what? Being positive is kind of awesome. I am definitely not the world’s most positive person. I blame all the cynics in my family (these cynics make for great material though). And myself, of course. I’m all about personal responsibility lately.
After all the stress and anxiety about Jack, I finally feel like I understand what I have to do. After reading and researching, I have learned that so much of your dog’s behavior is directly linked to your behavior. Dogs can totally sense your energy. And my energy was shit, to be honest. I was just so anxious and always had knots in my stomach worrying about whether Jack was going to bite someone. Listen, I am not 100% cured of that, but I am so on my way. I feel this renewed sense of leadership and confidence, which is exactly what he needs. He needs pack leaders! Rob is already an amazing pack leader, but I have a feeling that six months down the road I’m going to be right there with him.
Plus, I just want to be calmer and more balanced in my life. Not just for my dog but for me. And for my family and those people that I love. Holy shit, I should start doing motivational speaking or something, right?!
Ok, this might be too much positivity for some of you. So, on a more depressing and negative note…. Actually, I have nothing. Can you believe it? I seriously can’t even think of anything negative. Of course, it is only 8:00am.
