You know all those times when you’re really busy and you think “what I wouldn’t give to lie around in bed all day”? Now is your chance, so try to enjoy reading, watching TV, writing, thinking….? Try to make the most of it?
Dear Abi – I like treats. I think you should eat a small (human) treat before you practice or compete, and imagine that you are getting that treat from me. Focus on the feeling that Dear Mishu and your friends here are behind you 100%. Then just let your body do what it knows how to do!
Dear N. – I usually run away from people who are angry at me. If they’re angry a lot, I don’t even get near them to start. In my experience angry people can hurt you, so if I were you I would you get away.
A: Dear A.: When I meet dogs I like, I give them a play bow to say, ‘hey, let’s play.’ If they bow back and start playing – great. If not, that’s ok too. Maybe ask her if she likes to do something you really like, and if she says yes, invite her to join you sometime. If she says no then you can play by yourself or ask someone else to join you….
… Just think – asking someone to play is actually the easy part. The hard part comes if they say yes and you have to learn to get along.
