A Man and His Dog

April 03, 2014  •  2 Comments

My friend, Dan Dietrich, is one of the most talented men I know.

I think he can do about anything, fix everything. He loves the outdoors, carves decoys, built his own boat. And he taught me to cook for a large crowd (so I cooked for district Christmas parties and mother-daughter banquets), but I cannot fry fish like Dan. I was stunned when I watched him recently as he exercised his two retrievers. Dan trains dogs (and their owners), and I haven't witnessed more disciplined dogs, responding to commands from his whistle and the extension of his arms.

He almost makes me want to have a dog.

I just don't know if I'm trainable.

you know i was never a dog person. when i moved in with connie she had a dog and over the years i have become one. to be able to train a dog like this is so good. my dad and brother could do it too. me, i'm a softie but i do love my dog. i highly recommend getting one. you don't realize how much love you feel for them and how much you get back.
