*as of 8/6/2019
Hi my name is Mr. Zach. I'm a Golden Retriever. I was born on December 1, 2018. If you ask my handler, he'll say I am the smartest dog in the whole wide world. I could not agree with him more. I love to play. I am very silly. I like to impersonate Michael Phelps with my version of the breast stroke. I am in the process of becoming a service dog, so I'm being taught a few things. But if you ask me, I'm the one teaching my handlers a thing or two, like compassion, patience, understanding and love.

Hello to all my friends, family, family, and fans. This is your boy Zach checking in again. We can all check out another month of this journey we are taking together. Some of you know me as the rebel loitering at your local public aisle ways. I've learned to no longer do that, someone may trip over me. I now go to a convenient, safe spot, so if you need me check under the table YO! Also when I go on walks I will have either one of my two biggest fans with me Rick or Kenny. A lot of people find it funny to see me taking these guys on walks and taking them places. Someone has to do it. If I let them stray too far they may get in trouble. I have them wrapped around my paw. I've also been working on not being rude by begging when people are eating. Sometimes I get real excited when I see people and fight the urge to jump on them to give them love. I learned that's also rude. To sum this monthly check up in one sentence, I would say I am happy, loved, and destined for great things. Happy Holidays!
November 2019 Update
Hello it's me, Zach! This is my monthly check in. I've had lots and lots of fun this month. I've learned a few colors, yay colors!! Pink, yellow, blue, white, an black. Those colors are cool, but someone needs to teach me the color of that yummy kibble, because that stuff there is my favorite color. All you people on two legs are the best! I can't get enough hugs and kisses from all of you. This is Zach and I'm out of here.
October 2019 Update
Let's give this update a go. My name is Zach. Life is good! I am a hard worker and I love what I do. I have a whole team of dedicated men and women who love me unconditionally and we strive together to learn the skills to assist a person in need. As of now, I am learning my left and right, how to walk easy on my leash, patience at entries and exits, freeze and god, and how to greet people properly. I eat well, sleep well, and play hard! I also get a lovely vacation every weekend with my puppy parent. I will continue to learn and I am excited at what the future holds. I'm out for now. Live long and prosper! Your friend, Zach.
