As you can see, I’m pretty much crushing it at life—traveling the world with my human by my side. They say every dog has his day; I guess mine was the day I met my girl. Boy, did I land with my bum in the butter! A dashing young pup, the only golden-haired stud in a litter of eight—I guess you could say it was destiny, but you’d be wrong. From day one she was putty in my paws and it’s been that way ever since. Just another failed foster; a rescue from the wrong side of the tracks; taken in out of the cold—you get the idea.
But don’t terrier self up about it!
Truth be told, my life hasn’t been so ruff. In fact, it’s been down right pawsome! From road tripping across South Africa to flying over the Atlantic Ocean—all to start our newest adventure in Canada. You see, my human is what you would call a “grad student”—I know, I know; we all make mistakes—and to indulge this never-ending “quest for knowledge”, as she so endearingly puts it, we travelled across the globe to pursue her career aspirations.
Apparently, that entails starting a PhD, in a completely unfamiliar field, at the not-so-ripe age of 28—that’s almost 200 in dog years! And given that my human rarely does anything the easy way, her chosen area of study is, of course, Neuroscience. That’s right—Neuroscience of all things! And while I’m no top dog, she may have bitten off more than she can chew this time. Fortunately, being a good boy and all, I’ve decided to help her out along the way—boy, does she need it.
If you’re like my human, and understanding how the brain works gives you paws for thought—join us as we explore the bark side of Neuroscience and show that you really can teach an old dog new tricks.
