Yesterday I had a visit with two of my all time favorite training students. I've known these guys for years; done a great deal of training with their owner and each of these magnificent dogs. Keara on the left and Charlie on the right. I spent a lot of time with these two over the years; first with Keara and then Charlie some years later. Two more wonderful German Shepherds I have not met in all my years of training and I was so excited to see them after a several year absence.
I met Keara when she was but a youngster, a 6 month old gorgeous young lady. Now well into her senior years she is still the wonderful girl, albeit mellowed a bit.
Charlie; a young three year old and full of the energy of youth. He truly is a hunk and one of the sweetest boys I know. At over 100 lbs I had to brace myself for his exuberant greeting, he seemed as happy to see me as I was to see him.
Keara voiced her joy at seeing me; it sure felt good.
I met Charlie when he was only weeks old; he was and still is a dog who loves life. Some of the dogs I've worked with over the years I remember well, others have taught me great lessons, some have sort of just slipped by and a few have made a big impact on my life. These two most definitely impacted my life living a lasting memory.
