Abby Says Awareness

This week I know daddy Dan is talking to you all about proprioception and awareness in the body. Now, I know those seem like pretty big words for a cute dog like me but these terms are very much present in the animal kingdom.

When we stay focused our bodies are already aware of the muscles and ligaments that need to be in action to support us when we are pouncing on a lizard or chasing a squirrel. I do not think I know a dog who has hurt itself going after a ball or playing tug-o-war…but I do know people who have!
