Getting a dog to bark when you couldn’t use your voice to tell him what to do
I’ve been sitting out on the steps in front of the cabin for almost two hours,
trying to teach Kodiak to bark when I held up the I love you sign.
If the guys would’ve been awake, I could’ve told them to tell Kodiak to
bark while holding up the sign, associating the two things to teach Kodiak a
I was out of luck though, with Willem, Nordin, and Summit still asleep
after a long drive from Homer up to the cabin last night.
I couldn’t get myself to close my eyes again after waking up early, and
although it was starting to get colder up here, I took Kodiak out and gave him
his breakfast because he wasn’t up for naps either.

this much energy first thing in the morning,” he added.
I grinned and walked toward him, lifting my hands to sign when his eyes

We’ve been up for almost two hours.
Signing had become our main way of communicating after Willem and
Nordin got better at it, and I also didn’t have to take it slow anymore,
knowing they were now fluent in sign language.
It still amazed me at times how two grown men could learn sign so fast,
but they wanted to be able to communicate with me the way their younger
brother could, and now they didn’t feel left out anymore.
