Hi! I’m Hero Dogs Sally Ride. I touched down at my puppy raiser’s on March 22nd, and sent her right into orbit! I’m only 11 weeks old, and am the littlest puppy in the Hero Dogs pack right now. My puppy raiser is home schooling me until I’m ready for kindergarten, and every day I sharpen a pencil so I can practice my pupmanship. And I’m learning really fast! In just 10 days, I’ve figured out sit, down, wait, settle, and get busy. (Well, sort of, on that last one.) And I’m teaching my puppy raiser how to get busy, too. We walk all over town every chance we get so I can chase leaves and learn about new people and explore all kinds of good-smelling places. Fun! I met a Metro driver who let me check out his bus, and some kids in the park who gave me their soccer ball. Balls! And I love water, wheels, wind, and things that fly. Helicopters! My three favorite things are food, food, food, food, and food. My puppy raiser says that when I go to kindergarten, I’ll learn how to count. Lift off!
