I want to point out another way that Kim has improved the lives of his dogs, and is helping spread the word about his dogs and work, and that's the owner screening process.
There are many people on this forum talking about what wonderful dogs they have, and I want to talk about what wonderful owners the dogs have. Our AIDs were born with their many and varied personality strengths and quirks, and it is us owners who nurture those qualities, who help the dogs develop into the wonderful friends they are, who make the breed look even better with their deep knowledge of the history of the breed and passion for their dogs.
The people who help Kim in this work, the people who run the forum, go to the ranch to help socialize pups and help with whatever else he needs, help him create and maintain this wonderful community that gives us and our dogs so much. Every post we write deepens the connections we have with one another and with Kim. Every pup we take into our homes and hearts is one more success story for Song Dog Kennels.
I just wanted to say thanks to Kim, and to say thanks to all of my friends here on the the iidoba forum.
