Today I had my follow up with the veterinary behaviorist. We were evaluating how I’m doing on my meds, and where I’m at with training. Not only was I say more wiggly than last time, I also didn’t react to the nice lady, and I even offered my relaxed position by laying down. Later on I even rolled around in the couch cushions. 😆 Days like this are reminders that hard days are just moments in time, and I’m getting better all the time at the beginning of my journey through life! 💕
This was from early summer in Manjimup when visiting grandad. Amazing walk before we spotted the kangaroo.

TW/death threat to a service dog
today is one for the books. Went out to eat with a fellow service dog handler and her cousin and a man threatened to kill our dogs while we were waiting in line. He mumbled something to my friend’s cousin and she asked that he not talk to our dogs and he lost his mind saying he was in the service and it’s offensive to call them service dogs and that’s when he said if they put their nose near him he’d kill them. Both of our dogs are highly trained, my friend’s dog having finished her training and my dog in his last year. The restaurant made him go outside and mentioned they had had problems with him before and he was supposed to wait for his food outside and not come in. we ended up leaving without eating we were all so shaken up. i’ve dealt with a lot of stupid shit handling a service dog but nothing ever that bad or frightening. i truly believe given the chance he’d have attempted to hurt one of our dogs.
I measured Amber to be 27” at the withers, Diego is about 23-24”. The was interesting thing is that Amber had most of her thickness and muscle at about 5-6 months, Diego seems to be growing up taller not wider. Diego carries his head higher and has a longer neck so from some angles he looks taller than Amber.
My parents did yard work ALL DAY today & it was so boring. 🙄 every now & then I’d get a huge spur of energy & get the zooms all around the backyard (aka ran like a psycho all around the yard while making a huge mess of the yard that was JUST cleaned) Needless to say I’m worn the heck out so I need to sun bathe before I go inside to take an afternoon nap 😴
If there’s a treat in your hand, even before you say the word, my paw will be up and ready 😁. It’s one of the first tricks I’ve learned and now I’m getting better and giving someone my paw and then my other paw 🐾. Next I should try to learn high five.
