Well, it’s gorgeous Guinness’ last week in school! He is such a happy dog and just enjoys life to the fullest. He is always happy and he loves human interaction and playing with his fellow four-legged friends. He is always ready to go for a walk and loves his walkies. You can tell because he walks with his head held high, majestically, as if he is saying, “look at us, my human and I, walking together. I am so happy in this moment; what a decadent joy!” And this is no different from any other time, because he’s always THAT happy! He should be extra happy now because he has passed his final exams, and it really shows – he has become such a gentleman. His trainer is so proud of him and loved getting to work with him. He has given his trainer lots of love and laughter, because he can just be such a clown sometimes!
Guinness and his trainer have learned so much from each other. Guinness has learned new behaviors and skills, and that the humans in his life will always love him no matter what. His trainer says that as usual, he learns more from the greyhounds than that they learn from him; he has learned about the diversity of canine behavior and that just like people, dogs have their own individual personalities.
Some final words from Guinness’ trainer to warm your heart on these chilly winter nights: “Second Chance Greyhounds teaches us inmates life skills that we can take with us, no matter what career we pursue, and how to work with others as a way to solve problems that are hard to solve alone but conquerable when solved together.
