I had Grim on the field today, and he was doing great, having a good time. The last bite on the sleeve...when we were going off the field, I ruined it! The field had some snow, slush, and a little ice on it. I'm also really out of shape!
Anyway, I started to lose my balance, tried to regain it, and didn't. As soon as I fell, Grim doubled back to me. He had to make sure I was OK, then stand guard over me until I was up and he was satisfied I was OK. He got another bite to carry, but just wasn't into it like before. He wanted to keep looking back at me to make sure I was going to stay on my feet!
I think his closeness to me is going to work out well for service work later, but when something goes wrong with me it sure makes a HUGE distraction for him!! I felt bad that things ended on such a bad note for him. It was like watching air come out of a balloon. My sweet boy!!
