My human and I have walked back and forth in front of CostCo before, but we've never gone inside. I have no idea why she waited so long, because everyone in there loved me!
It wasn't only a practice trip: we needed supplies. My human hasn't been up to shopping much and we needed a lot of stuff (more than half for me, of course).
I walked fairly well beside the cart, though I took up too much space a few times and my human had to call me back to her side.
My most challenging moment was when she climbed into this huge refrigerator to get a box of milk cartons -- there had been a rush on organic 1% and there were none within reach from the door.
I was puzzled because she didn't take me in there with her. I kept my eyes on her every nanosecond, even though she was only three feet away. I was so happy when she came out that I kissed her and people laughed.
My human was able to talk to several people about PSDs and hand out two fliers about SDs. She didn't say that she was training me for herself. She said she was training me for a person with BP and PTSD -- which is true -- and then went on to say what sorts of things PSDs can do for their people.
There were several people who mentioned that they wanted to pet me but would not because they knew that petting wasn't allowed. I think my human needs to work with me more on my wave so that I can interact with my fans without losing focus.
