He is 81/2 months and we went to get my hair cut yesterday, but unfortunately I have just me when we go out most the time. He did pretty good for a pup his age and only broke the down stay 4 times while I was getting my hair cut. The women at the salon on base are totally cool and supportive of my and Thad. Next we went into the BX to find a watch I keep buying super inexpensive watches but they fit funny and break to easy. So this time I bought a Timex for a man because my wrist are so much bigger now and it fits better plus I can actually see what time it is. LOL

We next went to the dollar store for toothpaste, deodorant, dental floss and toothpaste. Then I went to Joanns and got some fabric glue sticks for his patches on his new harness. Next it was off to big lots for some training & some play toys and treats. Lastly it was off to PetSmart for the fishy treats for some reason he really flips for them and I can cut each piece into 4 tiny pieces so the last a long time. He still sniffs a lot I just tell him leave it and he will stop and he is real friendly to people and I am getting more and more to ask before just reaching out and touching.

He did start to get stressed the last time I left him, goal is working up to 3mins. We ordered a new nylon hands free service dog leash. Went to a friends house and watched the Saints kick Houstons but. Thaddeus did down stays and did not move while we ate. Behaved appropriately the whole time we were there.

Took Thaddeus to get shampooed and brushed this morning. Went home did doggie push ups and got ready for this afternoon. Took my car to Rob's work and waited for Nancy to pick me up. She had with her the cutest little Toy poodle named Gracie. Went to this place called Azalea Estates Assisted Living it is a retirement community and turns out us and three other dogs who where all dressed up in clothes/some in costumes entertained these old ladies for two hours. I told them about Thad and what he does for me and had his mobility harness. He is no where ready to be a mobility dog yet just getting use to the gear. I explained he was a pysch dog and what he did for me and my PTSD. He was so good with the other dogs there and let the olde ladies pet him. This one kept telling Thad home much she loved him.

Worked on what we learned so far and did doggie push ups. Went to visit a neighbor and she had a cat, Thad's first reaction was a bark then growled a couple of times but was quiet after I told him to leave it. He is such a good boy!

Today we were late getting started because we had a home inspection so we can buy our home. Thad wanted to be in the middle of it all:) He turned 8mons today so he is officially in his teens.(I thought he was goody enough) We went over what he has learned so far and he was jolly on the spot. I think we will start doing doggie push ups in the morning. Wow I'm still trying to get over he won second place for his training graduation. We tried to call this trainer I know so we could work on the stuff for the CGC. The only thing I really think we need to work on is staying with a friendly stranger for 3mins. Anyways she has a sick dog so I will have to find someone else. I really don't want to use Randy again but I will if I have to.
