Anna meets Kitkat, a McCullough Peaks Mustang, for the first time and introduces her to neck yielding, through following a line, with the lightest of touches. Gradually Anna massages Kitkats ears, eyes and muzzle, to earn her trust through gentle communication. While getting to know Kitkat Anna devises an appropriate training plan for the students to follow.
I don't think I even told you how I came to see him!!! He ran across the road in front of me. I think maybe something had startled him because he was sort of huffing, either that of after he got across the road he realized he didn't know where mama was!!! He was probably about 250#, by no means a baby, but not a big guy either! I slammed on my breaks and started backing up to see if I could see him go up the hill, but instead he stopped!!! He stood behind a tree! I of course was grabbing for my camera (which I just decided to take with me even though I was only going over to eat and talk on the phone!) and then I rolled my window down and talked to him! I told him I wasn't going to hurt him and he was beautiful! He then slinked out from behind the tree and stood looking at me and across the road! I sat along the road for several minutes talking to him and taking pix!!! Someone in a truck coming the other way stopped and asked if I was ok, and I laughed and said yea, just watching the bear over there next to you!!! The guy was like oh, ok, really, and then he pulled off looking! I finally decided I should drive off before I decided to get out of the car to take a pix, or maybe mama got upset! We sat there long enough that he seemed more relaxed and curious and his breathing was better!!! So anyways, I knew he was there for me! Otherwise I think he would have run off! I really felt honored he let me get some pix!
Please help us help Mindy find her missing Boston Terrier, Joker.
He went missing on May 18th, from Xanadu St. in Denver.
He had a brown canvas collar with a red name tag. There is a firehouse on one side of the tag and his name and number on the other side.
If you have any information that might help please call the number
above or email us A.S.A.P. at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Joker is a beloved member of the family and the community that he serves and we want to see him get back home, safe and sound.
Thanks for your help!
Hi, Anna, Excellent class on Wednesday. It is always inspiring to see you come into a room of 14 or so people and immediately rivet their attention. They also trust you quickly (rightfully so) and feel comfortable to explore the experience. I still think that people learn quickly in your classes in large part due to the teacher. Hope this isn't too gushy.:) But YRT(ruly)A. Enjoy Bitterroot. Sweep the place for snakes before I get there in July. 🙂 Knowing that I am get to go to Wyoming twice this summer lifts my spirits. Namaste, Laverna
