I graduated from Arizona State University in May 2011. I was 22 years old. Needless to say, I was pretty proud of myself! A Bachelor’s degree already at the age of 22 and I now had my entire life ahead of me. But I also needed a job. That was fine with me – I was ready to start making money instead of spending it on student loans. The problem? I couldn’t get a job in my field of study, which was history and culture. I went to school to be a high school history teacher but by the time I was ready to graduate with my Bachelor’s, I still needed to get certified as a teacher. Forget it. I started applying for jobs. On August 1, 2011, I started a job as a banker. Little did I know, it was the beginning of a miserable career that would turn into a dream come true.
As obesity continues to be a growing issue in America, we’re learning that it’s not just affecting people – it’s hurting our animals also. It’s quite simple, really. If we get lazy, our animals suffer. If we sit on the couch eating potato chips all day, your dog lays around and does nothing but eat. Without you, your dog cannot lead a healthy life. Your dog cannot take itself on a walk or run on the treadmill to lose weight. It’s up to you to be there for your dogs and cats and give them the healthiest, longest life you can. So it’s time to face the facts.
We made it through our third agility trial! As usual, it was so much fun. Sunday night we ran our jumpers course. It’s funny because for our gamblers run Wynston was the first dog to run and for jumpers we ran very last. Wynston had already won 1st place in gamblers so whatever happened with jumpers, we would be happy!
