Brush it out

Stewart and Shawna

Stewart is Papillion so he has long hair, especially on his hind end.

We live in rural Western Oregon where there is a lot of brush, woods and right now tall grass and blackberries.

Sometimes he gets stuff stuck in his hair and ends up trailing a stick or a bramble as he darts about outside. And it’s a comical sight.

The challenge comes when I begin to brush it out. The brambles and bits of sticks pull and tangle and he wiggles and shows his displeasure regardless of the care I take with him.

This reminds me that an untangling process needs to be handled slow enough to not do damage yet fast enough to let it pass fast.

How do you handle the tangles in your pet business?

Today can you take a breath and be calm about them?

Today can you speak softly and soothingly to any person or pet that is caught up or irritated?

Today can you accept that life brings its own brambles and with a little brushing you can smooth everything out?

A little brushing – think about that – brush out your business tangles, brush out the debris in any customer dealings – brush it out and let more good stuff flow in.

Stewart is looking pretty good right now – I wonder if I should even let him outside?

Would love to hear how you handle the tangles in your business!

And remember being patient is a great way to: Do Your Business!
