It's Good Friday. So tell me something good, will you please?
Here, I'll start. Last night I helped a dog be his best self. I was at a friend's birthday cake party and his family dog, about 80 lbs of hound mix, gets super excited when people come over and has a mortal hatred/jealousy of hugging. Using treats and nearly my full attention I was able to get him to come when called, sit, even lie down in the center of the action and wait calmly while we all ate and sang and laughed. Even better than that, when grilled by the grandmothers of the dog I was able to explain why I was doing it, how it worked, and what sort of ongoing results could be expected. Feels like I've actually been able to apply all my learning!
OK, now you go.
