Greetings everybody!! I have been working really hard lately. I am still practicing in my mobility harness, where I need to stay straight and close to the person’s side, and I also need to make sure the handle is in the person’s hand so they do not have to stretch to reach it. Sometimes when I wear my harness, my trainer loses balance and needs my help so they do not fall. At first this was a little scary to me, but I am getting used to it, and I have learned that I need to be brave so that I can help my future Veteran partner.
It is summer in DC and it is getting really hot, which I do not like at all There are two reasons I do not like hot weather. First is because I just don’t like being hot! The second reason is because I am not allowed to play ball! Playing ball is my favorite thing to do in the whole world! I even like it more than treats! But I guess it’s not good for me because once I start playing I have a hard time knowing when to stop. If I play too hard, I might get too hot which is dangerous to my health. I can’t wait until autumn arrives and the weather cools off!
Ok, it’s time for more training sessions, so I will catch you next month!
