We graduated. Last nite was our last session in Obedience School with Magglio. And while he has made a lot of progress--he still has a lot of work to do. It became clear during the sessions that he was probably abused and neglected in his former life but we are committed to working him through his issues---and in return he gives us his love and-------well, mostly it is us giving him food, shelter, treats, companionship, rides in the car, safety from storms, pockets of treats. But in return, he gives us love. And---he walked away with the reward for "Best Recall". He isn't dumb---he knows that if we let him walk away and then re-call him, there is a treat in hand waiting!
