A few weeks ago, a friend’s dog gave me a great reminder about persistence. My friend and I were hanging out her washing, as we chatted and caught up on each other’s lives. All the while, her kelpie dog called Kevin (yes, Kevin the Kelpie), dropped a stick at my feet. So I’d throw it and off he’d run to collect it. Within a flash he was back to do…Read More
