Kona turns three today! We celebrated with a trip to her favorite trail. I told her to follow every sniff, chase every lizard, today was her day. (With mad dashes into skin-slashing chaparral, leaps up vertical walls over 8 feet tall and bunny terrorization being exempt from the birthday offering).
It's hard to believe I brought Kona home three years ago. This past year has been transformative for me. I let go the dream of having that dog that goes everywhere with me and instead hold onto the cool canine I do have.
My job as Kona-Mama is to minimize fear, maximize fun and find safe challenges that help expand my dog's world. While that may not include evening strolls in the neighborhood or trips to the park, we're OK with that.
Here's to another year of finding more fun! Happy birthday Kona Girl!
