Time sure does fly, I can’t believe it was two years ago today that Wiley entered my life. I remember our first meeting as if it happened yesterday. He jumped down from the back of a station wagon, I gave him a treat and a cuddle, harnessed him up and took him for a test walk. From the very beginning I loved his jaunty walk, fast pace, his desire for praise and need for reassurance. I was confident he was the perfect dog for me.
I made him a promise on our first day together that I would try my hardest to be a worthy handler and partner. There is no doubt that over the last two years both he and I have made mistakes. That is to be expected and we have learned more from mistakes than doing everything perfectly. However despite mishandling and some guiding errors our love, trust and respect for each other has continued to grow.
Wiley and I celebrated the day with a long and very chilly bush walk and playtime with a new toy.
