Upon the advice from Sugar, we ordered the book~~A dog named Slugger.Mom tells me bout it and it is really good so far. It is all about Slugger being a service dog to a nice mom named Leigh. Before she could have him, he had to go through lots and lots of training. Mom says that it is so interesting and how he was trained. They were a perfect match and so began their relationship. Slugger did things for Leigh and he helped her with walking too and Slugger was a big help to Leigh. She went to apply for a job and the agency wouldn't hire her cuz she had Slugger. Can you believe that?? Leigh fought it and now the agency has service dogs there Yay!!
When Mom was working at Micheals, there was a lady that came in with a service dog. She had never seen a service dog before. She said it was really cool!! And guess what?? He looked just like Remington but smaller. Mom said he was doing such a great job that she wanted to pet him and tell him what a good dog he was. But she knew from reading the book, that you don't touch or feed a dog while they are working. She wasn't able to get his name or anything. :-(
But now Mom has ideas~~Yikes, that spells T-r-o-u-b-l-e!! Mom was telling me that she thinks that I could use some learning and some training.WHAT??? I couldn't believe what my ears heard!!
ME??? Yah right!! Personally, I think I do a great service round here already.
I can clean off a table real quick, especially if it is Tacos!!
I play with the munchkins and keep them entertained.
I help with cleaning up loose foodables left on the floor,
I do things to make Mom smile, that's service right??I keep the pesty squirrels outta the yard,
I keep an eye out and I protect my family unless attacked by a helium balloon, So...NO..I don't think there is any training needed~~We will see if my arguments will work!!
But really, we want to give a big shout out to any Service Dogs like Clive and Therapy Dogs like Josie~~You do a great service and we admire your good work. Paws clapping for you!!
