To all Service Dogs

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!!


  1. Woof! Woof! This is great Jazzi n mom. I'll inform Leigh in regards to this post. She'll be very happy.
    Jazzi you got to listen to your mom. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Oh we went to school for a long time. I don't think it worked :)

  3. Keeping your mom smiling is hard work, Jazzi! It sounds like you're already trained to us!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  4. Hey Snazzi,

    Our friend Jennifer is blind and is in training to get a service dog. When Ruairi went to puppy kindergarten, there was a guide dog puppy there and he was so good - don't think we can ever be that good. It takes a lot of training for both the people and the dogs.

    We think that making Mom's smile is the most important work we do - and sometimes we get rewarded with a laugh - BOL!!

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

  5. You furgot to mention ... all that you did to help Uncle Ed with his new home addition!!!

  6. Jazzi, thank you so much for the mention!

    We have that book on order too - we can't wait to read it - your review was great!

    take care
    Clive and Murray

  7. Hi Jazzi and MOm,
    Jazzi you do so much now, I don't think you should hace to do even MORE!!! Jazzi, us humans would be so lost without you!!! You fur babies help keep us going!!!!
    Love you Jazzi, Bambi & Fern

  8. I think Blogger just ATE my comment! I'll try to remember all that I said... :)

    I think you're plenty smart already, Jazzi, and it sounds like you already help out your family quite a bit. Mom says my primary responsibility is making her laugh, so I know that's an important job. Gotta keep those moms happy!

    And yes, that was an M&M shower curtain that you saw in the pic on my blog. Mom's obsessed with M&Ms. She says she has collected the stuff for years and years. Only adopted me last November, so I don't know about that. What I do know, though, is that there's M&M stuff everywhere I turn. It's seriously all over our house...

  9. I think you provide great service!! We actually know a Scottie in Oregon that is a service dog.

  10. Oh, yes! I think you are a super terrific service dog already, Jazzi! Maybe you could think about becoming a Taco Search and Rescue Dog. You'd be REALLY good at that!

    I'm glad that lady won her fight to get that agency to allow service dogs. You know how I told you that Denver has that hateful BSL? Well, they don't even allow in pit bulls that are service dogs! Can you imagine? The ADA peoples just said that cities can't discriminate against any service dog - no matter what their breed. But Denver is trying to figure out a way to get around it. Isn't that just the awfulest?

    Anyway, I hopes that people do like Slugger's mom and keep fighting!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  11. Jazzi are you the upstairs or downstairs Scottish Maiden?
    MOL Madi

  12. Service and Therapy dogs are great! Amazing! I wish I could do half as good as they do...

  13. We agree-paws clapping for all service dogs!

  14. Oh how we hope the Beckarooooooo will be good lil dog to help heal the lonely when older!

  15. My, Jazzi. You certainly do seem very trained! Smart too. After all, you do write a blog... Something tells me Slugger's training might have been a bit more vigorous!

  16. hmmm good luck wit dat service dog thing Jazzie! my brudder is a "real" service dog ....well one day he will be one
