I really love my job! Whats not love? Every time I look at a human, they are always smiling, and I love being around all these happy people. One day, two years from my birthdate, August 12 2017, I heard I am going to be helping someone with PTSD. They said all the things I am learning will help my future human. So far, some of my skills include opening doors, carrying my leash and other objects, finding lost items, identifying colors, shapes, people, and words, and I can answer yes and no questions. I can’t wait until they see how smart I am.

Hi everyone! Boy have I got a lot to share with you. It was a fun filled month and if anyone made it to our Demo on September 7th then you already know I…. NAILED IT! Though I did good and my dad’s were proud of me it was my mommy who stole the show (She helped me refocus because I was really distracted by Greg’s service dog Eddie who I wanted to play with). So since I have been going home with her almost every night I am happy to report that mean ole’ Walmart (a store I was really afraid of) is like a walk in the park. Yup, a message to the world; whatever you got, bring it- challenge accepted! So with that, this month has been one challenge met after another. I have a little less than a year now and everyone says they think I am ready to go now, but until then I will keep learning even more and hanging out with all my buddies. Check in with me next month, I will be the oldest lad in here now that Sonny, Nolan and Toby will be going off to Boot Camp and graduating. See you then!
SEPTEMBER 2018 UPDATE
Hi Friends! It's been an awesome month. I've been able to go home every day with my mommy, unlike all my other friends who only go out on the weekends. She takes me home and I get to go to stores, parks, and all types of cool public places. It's getting me ready for public access as a service dog, because I only have a year left before I graduate. The other half of my super cool days is spent with my New Life family at CTF. Tim and Sergio teach me all types of fun and exciting things. Recently, I have been working on how to read different words, count numbers and I'm like super awesome at opening lockers and getting help when someone needs it. That's what I do, I help people and give them love. ALSO, in case you didn't know, my favorite thing to do is make new friends and give kisses. I hope you can keep following me through my amazing journey towards becoming a Service Dog.
