The Smartest Dog You Will Ever Meet

Bred to be a working dog. Trained to be a working dog. And all of his life he’s been…you guessed it…a working dog.

Don’t worry, he enjoys it. Really. He is up early every morning running back and forth to the car checking that Matt hasn’t left without him. He is always eager, easily bored, and often lets Matt know when its time to get off the couch and down to the farm.

Because Matt works two jobs, when he is not headed down to the farm, Jim used to be tied up in the kennel. And he would be bored, very bored.

Then I came along.

Working from home can be lonely at times. Especially when you live in the middle of nowhere, and frankly there aren’t many places to go when you’re bored. Having a dog helps. A LOT.

We became quick friends when Matt was working. Jim has become a running partner (he is a great pace-setter considering he can out run me–both speed and distance–any day), co-explorer (he is still curious about things he has seen a million times), good listener, and constant companion.

Jim has made my transition here much easier. And I’m happy to say he is no longer just a working dog but part of the family.
