Dogs are magnificent creatures with so much to give. They’ve been known as man’s best friend for centuries and it’s easy to see why. Every fibre in their bodies is built to love. They’re intelligent, obedient and wonderful.
They help us see things in a clearer light when the full picture grows fuzzy in our minds, and in return we comfort them, feed them and love them back.
There is a special bond between man and canine, we coexist in harmony and aid each others personal developments. In regards to that, communities everywhere partake in the public displays of the power and focus our furry friends obtain.
One of which, is recording the physical abilities of their dogs, for example, how fast they can run, how obedient they can be and even how high they can jump. We do this as a testament to the incredible capabilities of our canine companions.
The highest recorded jump by a dog is 172.7 cm (68 in), achieved by Cinderella May a Holly Grey, owned by Kate Long and Kathleen Conroy (both USA) of Miami, Florida, USA, at the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge National Finals, Gray Summit, Missouri, USA on 7 October 2006.
Now, that’s impressive.
When a world record was set for the fastest men’s 100m sprint back in 1912. The time it took was something like 10.8 seconds. After that record was set, it was said to be a physically impossible time to beat for any human. And that’s the way it was.
For a long time men couldn’t beat this time, no matter how hard they tried. The reason for that is because they were forced to believe something that wasn’t true. The human mind is the most complicated thing in the known universe, it has the power to do some unbelievable things.
So, a mental block had been created. Although, one day someone had decided that he wasn’t going to be detained but what everyone else believed to be impossible. The man trained and trained until he was ready.
He had eventually gone on to set a new world record and the public were stunned. Since then, people have learned from history that limits can be pushed. Progression is a very real thing, and it’s a key to true happiness.
The point of what I’m saying is, we push ourselves because it’s healthy. We push our pets because they deserve to have the same right to also do great things. It won’t be long before Cinderella May’s record is broken, thus we continue our shared progression through the rough stages of life.
For so many people, our dogs are our pride and joy. Not only that, but our friends. The limits we set for each other will determine our futures. Keep pushing the limits and living life to the full because it’s the only way to find what we love to do.
When you love what you do, you can make great work.
