Nasty, British weather

The Brits call weather like we've been having, "Bloody awful." It's been cold, rainy, very windy, and gray. Add to that, evening comes very early, and dawn takes forever. It seems as though you are getting ready to go to bed or just getting up.
Besides trying to help with our newborn grandson, Ewan, I try to take my daughter and son-in-law's, three-year-old yellow lab, Bonnie, for some long walks. But this weather has put a crimp on how far we go.
Bonnie has been absolutely amazing with the baby. She seems to "mother" him. When he starts to cry, she moves to his side, tail wagging, with a concerned look on her face.
When it's diaper or "nappy" changing time, she stays by the baby watching the entire process. She's a most gentle dog. Next to our own Molly, she's the best ever.
This Sunday's column deals with Molly and dog trainer Marc Guerrieri who operates his school out of Canine Resolution on Walton Blvd., in Waterford. ( or 248-681-4201 for information.)
Guerrieri has that magic touch with animals and one that makes dogs want to be with him and come to the classes.
Even after training, he's available to answer questions or offer advice and suggestions. If you have a new dog or puppy and are looking to teach it some of the basic obedience, give Canine Resolution a call or visit the website for more information.
