Playing to my strength!

These days, I watch my mom and dad a lot!! I watch their faces, I watch their actions, and I watch when they motion to tell me to do something! I make sure I keep them in my eyesight! That’s because I’m playing to my strength; I can see really well!

Now that I’m an older dog, I don’t hear very well. That’s a weakness that is sometimes hard. I can’t hear the door bell anymore and I usually don’t hear my mom call me. But I watch out the sidelight window of the front door to see if anyone is around so I can alert my mom and dad and I watch Mom to see what she wants me to do.

My mom says I a really good guy when I play to my strength and use my eyes. And I’ve discovered I can keep up with her and Dad as long as I’m right around them.

So if you’ve got a weakness, play to your strength and find out how much you can do. Are you doing that now? What’s a strength for you?
