Day 85

I got another new client today. This was different than most, because it wasn't a referral from an existing client. This time I was actually selected out of the blue by someone who happened to notice my website and liked the work I'd done. I don't know why I'm so surprised. After all, isn't this why I have a business website in the first place?  It is supposed to generate new leads and get me work.

I tend to forget I even have a business website though, since the only feedback I typically get from it are a lot of questions about dogs. People seldom write and tell me "Hey, I saw your work on the web today and I'd like to hire you." They're much more likely to ask me things like "My dog just ate a Brillo pad...what do I do now?" Maybe I need to do a better job of telling people that I'm a writer and photographer, because there are a lot of people out there who seem to think I"m a veterinarian.

I don't know what Dash thinks I am. He certainly doesn't think of me as any kind of authority figure. After four years of training, he still won't come when he's called with any reliability. Dash has stepped up to the plate since he graduated to the advanced class however. He seems to understand that more is expected of him now. Tonight at class, our trainer even came over and complemented Dash on his improved performance. Who knows? Maybe in two or three more years, he'll finally learn to heal properly.
