One New Thing

In true Chinese “Tiger Mom” style, I have so many hopes for Spanky and the things I would love to do with him: therapy work, conformational showing, rally… Some of these things will be up to him and who he turns out to be. But I feel like it is all my responsibility to give him the right foundation to be successful. So I have commited to introducing Spanky to One New Thing every day. Some days are small: walking down a new path, or playing animal noises on the computer. Some days are big: going to the grocery store or meeting new people and dogs.
