"spring won't let me stay inside any longer! i must get out and breathe the air deeply again."
~gustav mahler

i like the wintertime in missouri because the cold is invigorating to me when i'm active. the spring is 50-70 degrees, with fluffy clouds and not much humidity. in the summer it's extremely humid, hot sun or haze, and flat muggy air. i do love a good dry heat, but can't stand humidity. the fall is similar to the spring except it still can get hot. if i could choose to control any aspect of the weather it would be 65 degrees, breezy, and sunny. what would you choose for optimal weather?

"training a puppy is like raising a child. every single interaction is a training opportunity." ~ian dunbar
jake is our family dog, but i do a lot with him, feed and take care of him, he is very tolerant and affectionate, and i consider him my dog. loki is a very happy and sweet dog, begs for any type of human contact and he knows quite a few tricks and is very good with recall, and loves following you. i have trained and raised him with more knowledge than jake. i feel like if i get another dog someday, it will be better trained and behaved, because i will be equipped with more experience and knowledge of dog care. i will always have room to improve, and there are several things i could of done different. i want to raise and train my dogs better for their safety, and so i can enjoy being in all types of environments with them, and so they can have better experiences. i believe that a lot of a dogs personality depends on genetics, but i also believe that it's our responsibility to set them up for success as much as we can.
do you feel that you've gotten better with training and/or care on second or third dogs or just that you've progressed as a dogowner, or if you do get another dog will try to train it better?
