Well its time to tell everyone what I have been doing for the past year. I have been training to be a PSD, Psychiatric Service Dog In Training. I know that I am much older than the other PSDIT's but they say that I am doing well in my training. How it all came to be was that when my mom was getting sick, when that happened I wouldnt let her out of my sight. I followed her wherever she went, I became like glue. I did other things but mom says they are too numerous to mention on this page. I only have two paws and not a good typer. Mom brought this to the attention of her doctor who told her about PSD's and told her to do some research. She than took me to the vet and had me evaluated for temperament. I dont know how long I will do this but for now I am here to help, my brother is also training too.

Also mom has back problems, she has had three major back surgeries, she just had her third surgery last month. She has problems moving around, I and my brother both are being trained to help her with mobility. We have learned the task of 'Brace' for when mom needs help getting up off the floor or when she bends down to pick something up. We are both learning to help her get up from the chair, and to help her balance. The next task is retrieval.
