Special insights from German Shepherds

Today we have a special treat – Sarang, one of Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s German Shepherds, has graciously agreed to do a guest post for us.  Let’s give her a big hand, and read what she has to say!

Hello  everyone!  I am so glad to meet you all!  I am a very happy and outgoing dog, and I love to meet new people.   But that being said, I am Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s personal protection dog, alongside with my buddy Chung Song, and together we make sure that she is safe, at all times.

When we are in the living room, we each take our position on each side of Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim.

Sometimes we get rewarded, Korean style.  I have really come to like seaweed!

When we are not busy protecting our Master, we love to play!  Our Master always says, “work hard, play hard!” and that is what we do!  Our favorite game is to play fetch!  It is actually a great game that requires speed, quick reaction, change direction in mid run, sometimes mid-air and incredible coordination.  Just like Martial Arts, and it keeps us in perfect shape for our protection job!

Now during the hot California summer months, I really like playing in the water!

Here, I am imitating Chung Song, the perfect gentleman, drinking from the hose:

But this is how I prefer to handle it:

It is so much fun, and again, it is just like Martial Arts training!  You have to charge in, you have to be able to predict where the water will go, and as a special bonus, you get to drink a lot!

See how although we are K-9s, we are still warriors?  Oh and before you go, watch this – I am the star in this video!
