SO YOU THINK YOU WANT A DOG
A couple of friends and I were asked to teach a Community Education class at the local community college. Called "So You Think You Want a Dog" - it was offered free of charge to anyone who is thinking of adding a dog to their family. We had several families attend, and spend a couple of hours talking all about owning dogs - types of dogs, cost of dog ownership, responsible dog ownership, dog care, dog training, dog grooming - anything that was holding them back on getting a dog. It was a good class, and it was evident that out of the entire group, adding a dog was not for every family. I'm glad they took the class and made that discovery now rather than after they got a dog and discovered that it wasn't the best decision for their family.
We brought dogs with us - my Annie is on the right. We also had a large dog with us, so it was not an all Shih Tzu group :-)
