WE HAD SO MUCH FUN! You know, a lot of times at these booths, you meet people who just want to cop a pet. They think I'm cute, adorable, sweet (which of course, I am!) and they want to meet me and tell me all about their loved canine at home. And, this is fine; I meet lots of nice people this way, get to work on my manners, and generally I'm able to give those folks a smile during the day. But, this time at this booth was different.
I met so many people who were seriously interested in me, Canine Companions for Independence, the dogs we provide, and puppy raising. It was amazing. I talked to a man who uses a power wheelchair and was concerned that he might run over a service dog's paws if he made a quick left turn. SWMBO and he talked about the training we receive and how this would be worked out during the two weeks of Team Training. I answered questions for a young woman who uses a wheelchair and was worried about having a service dog because of her small dog at home. SWMBO let her know that it's OK with CCI to have other pets in the home and suggested that she call CCI to inquire.
|This was my friend, the artist, that I met at the Expo. She wanted to take me home. I have to say that I wasn't adverse to that idea. Look at my mad "Visit!"|
