Hi!! Wow, it has been a very busy summer for me so far. I don’t even know where to begin. I have been going to a lot of events (I am very social, so I enjoy it).
I have been to Rolling Thunder in Washington, DC in May, Hero Dogs’ Open House in June, Pet Dominion’s Charity Drive in July, and the American Legion Ride for Hero Dogs on July 11th. At the American Legion Ride I got to meet DJs Amelia from 98 Rock station and Michael J. from 93.1 WPOC, which was really cool. I posed for a photo with my fellow Hero Dogs “Amber” and “Ruby” – but don’t worry, the motorcycles in the background were being nice and quiet.
As I mentioned back in May, I have been working on alerting to stress cues such as wringing hands. When I see my trainers wring their hands, I go up to them and paw at their leg… then I get treats! Sometimes I try doing it even if they aren’t wringing their hands, because, hey, I may get a snack anyway… just maybe.
Well, I am off to new adventures as my calendar is pretty busy. I’ll be in touch!
