No we haven't fallen off the face of the earth.....
Fall is here! And while were loving the great colors that brings, not so happy with all the crazy weather we've been having lately. Hot one day, cold, and rainy the next.
Poor Texas isn't very happy to see the dreaded sweaters have come back out again; I probably won't put them on him, except under extreme circumstances. He hates them and will go and hide somewhere when they are on. He'd where them all the time as a puppy and didn't seem to mind....?!?Bubbles doesn't care about the weather, but I like putting sweaters on her for fun; she doesn't mind.
Hope has settled in and is comfortable now I believe. She and Texas like to "argue" of toys a lot, but I monitor them closely. We've been to Petsmart and Panera Bread since her arrivall last week, and did very well.
Sunday they were able to get out and play with some of the church kids; while we were out there we witness an accident right in our front yard!! She didn't even startle at all the noise. We were able to gather the dogs and move into my house; Thankfully no one was hurt!!
Victoria is coming along quickly as well, today another trainer evaluated her progress and she passed with flying colors! We did have one command that she 'refused" to do, so we're going to work on that.
My Goal with the @ServicePups this week, is get them both out in stores/the community at least twice this week. Having multiple service pups is hard, especially when you are working everyday...but I'm committed to making sure these pups have the best chance possible at becoming Service Dogs.
Today was Victoria's day she and I attended at Social Media Meeting at UTKnoxville; Besides knowing their commands, an important aspect of service dog training, is teaching the puppy to behave aka be still in all situations. When the host started speaking into the microphone, she thought about talking back, but I was able to correct it before she got too loud. *phew*
But otherwise, she was in this position :)) Good Job Vicki!
Now to see if we can squeeze 3 more outings into this week...!! :)
