MIAGD: Always on duty…

MIAGD: Make it a great day

I love how dogs can be so paternal/maternal, always on duty.

My dog, Flyer, always stayed in the studio with younger students, often sitting near them. When their lesson was over, she’d follow them into the front room.

Many times, if the young student’s parent or ride had not arrived, Flyer would sit close by them, body erect, on guard, always on duty. Once the student left, with Flyer always walking students to the front door, she would relax and return to the studio to be in our company.

It’s no different with Chief, Bailey, and Harrigan. They, too, are always on duty at The Haasienda. Even my cats, who were trained just like the dogs, had a sense of being always on duty with guests and students. My wonderful Clyde was especially fond of his duties as a member of The Haasienda.

Yesterday, I looked around to see all three dogs surrounding the piano as Zach warmed up. Bailey was on the other side of the piano out of the lens’ sight.

Dogs always seem to make it a great day. Chief is battling a bout of arthritis but still remains at his post, always on duty.

As I finish up breakfast on the deck, Chief is at my side.

There are many lessons we can learn from our pets, especially dogs.

May you find the dogged determination to make it a great day!
