First blog post of 2019. First blog post of the new and improved blog. Where do I start? That easy one word, Larkin. 616 days ago I got this.
I thought I was getting a dog. I have had dogs my whole life but after losing Pacey l planned to do things differently. Ok, wait, let’s take a step back though for moment. My whole life I always wanted to have the time to spend with my dog, not just as a pet, but to do with some sort of sport or other endeavor. I knew when I was getting Larkin that it was time to make that dream happen. I had learned the hard way never to feed dog food. If you have not seen the movie Pet Fooled I would highly recommend you watch it. Wow! Looking back at 600 days ago or so I just had no idea what I was getting myself into food wise but more on that later. I also had no idea what I was going to do with this little creature? I had no idea how challenging this relationship was going to be either. People stop me all of the time and compliment me on how she is so well-trained. This relationship is the most challenging relationship I have ever had in my entire life. It is also the most rewarding relationship I have ever had in my entire life. Larkin has motivated me to do things I never thought I would do in my entire life. I had never been in a kayak before; Now we go kayaking regularly.
The longest we have been apart was for me to go see my other girlfriend, Shania. Larkin was not happy about that at all. Let the blogging adventure begin.
