Had breakfast Sunday at church and Thad laid down and stayed the whole time. He went through the line for food like a champ and did not try to get to food.
Went to Barkus & Meow this afternoon and did a demonstration with the other club members. There where so many people there, at first he was calm but after we got off stage there were so many more people who arrived and were still arriving that Thad & I were getting stressed so we left. When we introduced ourselves to the crowd I told everyone he has been training at RROTC since he was 10wks and was training to be my service dog. He did everything I asked of him during the demonstration just kept looking around at all the people when he was in either a sit stay or down stay. I was proud of the both of us for how we handled everything with all the people there. We bought him this hat that was green, yellow, & purple, it looked like he had colorful dreadlocks. Also people kept taking pictures of us, it was really bothering me, my husband said you two might be in the local paper. When he said that I could feel my chest tighten and my Thad came to my rescue keeping me grounded so I did not have a panic attack. We took a nap immediately when we got home then had supper.
