October has been another wonderful month of training and learning new things. New vocabulary words that i have been working on include: “pull, push, light, go-through, bring, hold, leave-it, place, step and come” just to name a few. I am able to pick up a quarter, penny, and a dime off of carpet. I have done a pretty good job at pressing handicapped buttons on doors and the cross-walk buttons. I have done an ‘ok’ job with turning the lights on and off. I did well on open steps.
I attended a lunch meeting with my raisers boss and co-workers, I love those ladies! I also attended my last big meetings at my puppy raisers work place. I sit well through the meetings, and when its over, I like to see everyone. I get too excited to say a formal “hello”, but I like to give hugs.
My puppy raisers had a Hero Dogs outing in Frederick, I unfortunately, had to stay home. But they smelled like they had fun, and I smelled Claira, Stella, and some little puppies that I hadn’t met yet.
I enjoy spending special time with my baby guinea pigs. Actually, they are older than me, but I treat them as if they were my babies. Xo.
I love Halloween, because I get to be…..Wonder Woman!! I fit the character well, because I am always ready for anything.
The most important thing that I did in October was to go to The Pentagon. We took the MARC train into D.C. and then rode two metro trains to The Pentagon. It was a wonderful experience. I was able to show some of my skills of picking up items from the floor, such as keys, smart phone, and pens. I met a lot of very nice and important people who keep our Nation safe and secure. I was impressed by the people met and I think they were pretty impressed with the work we, Hero Dogs, are doing. It was a golden day in all of my days of training.
October will end with the great puppy swap!
