Snowboards Attack!!

The other night, Rob and Bruce decided to whip out their snowboards to get them ready because I heard someone talk about snowboarding and skiing. Rob hadn't been out on the slopes at all this winter and he was fine-tuning and adjusting the bindings on Bruce's board.

I was pretty nervous about these strange boards. They placed them all over the dining/hall area and I didn't know where to hide. What were these things? Were they going to fall on me? It was a challenge just to be there. Mum said I had to mentally challenge myself to face new things all the time, that included scary snowboards. The humans just ignored me, and let me walk around at my own time.
Bruce and Rob fussed over the boards, and Mum wasn't cooing at me or baby-talking me. (As a matter of fact, Mum never baby-talks me because she expects me to hold myself together at all times). So there she was, snapping away being trigger happy with the camera, and I'm left to my own devices, figuring out that there is nothing too scary at all about snowboards.
After a while, I calmed down because no one was reinforcing my fear, and I even got bold enough to lay down next to a snowboard on the floor. This was really the first time in my life that I was laying down next to a snowboard. There were 4 of them all over the place.
I can safely say that I have mastered my uncertainty of snowboards.
Everyday brings a new lesson.
Everyday, there are new experiences to embrace.
Everyday, I am mentally challenged.
Life is good.
I hope I never stop learning, growing and evolving.

Even a dog has to learn new things, how about you?

We must learn new things every day. What purpose would life have if we never learned anything. You are one bright pup.

Your right Kimi. I am getting used to a new coat that the pinkies bought me. They put it on and left it on for a few hours. I've never had a coat before. It's good trying new things.

Good job, Kimi! I mastered walking by an orbital sander in motion yesterday! I was nervous but I did it!
