There was once a dog. When he was a puppy he ran and played like all other puppies do. His owner took good care of him and fed him well. He had all the comforts a dog could want. Life was good.

As he grew he started to get bigger and stronger. He still played and ate well and had fun. He watched as the grown dogs would work, but he paid no attention. He hadn’t a care in the world. His life was easy and that’s all that mattered to him.

After the dog realized this, he started to pull better. He not only pulled better, but he enjoyed pulling also. It became his passion. He strived to pull the best that he could. Oftentimes he had no idea where he was going. It didn’t matter to him because he was doing what he was supposed to. He went many places he thought he would never go, places he didn’t even know existed. He enjoyed...
