Many people have called my dog lucky, and maybe they’re right. But, certainly I’m the lucky one in our relationship. At a recent fund raiser for SPCA, Napoleon won two professional dog walks when my raffle ticket was drawn.
I contacted the owner of ‘Good Karma Premier Excursions and Dog Walking’, Teryn Smothers, last week to claim the prize. Teryn is a charming recent college grad who started her own business incorporating her love of animals, especially dogs. She had an almost hypnotic effect on my dog. He likes people, but he went gaga over Teryn. In a matter of minutes he was rolling on his back luxuriating in a stomach rub that I could see competed in his mind with the delights promised by the sight of his leash in her hand.
Teryn got to know my dog before taking him out for a walk. She offered me some training tips as well. From her comments to me and from Napoleon’s response to her, I am convinced she has found her calling. I don’t know if her business will be profitable, but I applaud her drive in providing a service based on her skills and interest. At a time when it’s especially difficult to find a job, Teryn has found a career. Good Karma site
