Mission Statement of Dogs, Monks and Me

Dogs, Monks and Me is dedicated to the memory of the dogs in my life, what they've taught me and what I still have to learn.  In the next year, I will follow the books of the Monks of New Skete--famous for training German Sheperds.  I will apply their teachings to my dog, Jeep, an adopted Bull Terrier.  Can the Monks teach me about living a better life?

Expect a variety of dog lessons, opinions, musings and practical information from training to pet products and from pet insurance to pet therapy.  This blog is as much about the person as it is the dog.  Be prepared to share, relive and discover yourself through your own dog lessons.
