Arrival Story:
I enrolled in a service dog school because I needed a service dog. Donovan's breeder/Mother had to get rid of him because he couldn't be shown. His left testicle hadn't descended. Luckily for me she called our service dog school to see if we needed a dog. Donovan and I met on a Sunday afternoon and we've been together ever since. (Sunday, Sept. 2, 2001)

Donovan has been my service dog for twelve years now. He isn't able to travel like he used to because it just is too hard on him. He still does all the at home things that I need help with. He can still get to the corner store and that suits me fine.

Donovan's Days

Seven Months

It's been seven months since I went to the rainbow bridge. I must say that Mom didn't learn a thing from training me. LOL! Each dog is different and only so much can be expected to transfer from one dog to the next. At least Rambo is getting enough treats. I put on ten pounds eating all the treats I could get.

Mom is doing pretty well. She doesn't cry anymore. She does get teary eyed at the mention of my name and memories of other people.

I try to tell Mom that if she just trains like crazy it will be all right. Rambo will shape up and be a good service dog. She has trouble getting motivated, I know. Still she is a good trainer. She trained me and I was perfect, just kidding.

Mom will be okay. I am happy here across the rainbow bridge. I wait for Mom here.


Another Puppy

Poor Mom! The lady who bred the first puppy decided Mom couldn't give him enough exercise or playtime! She didn't know my Mom! So Mom didn't get a puppy and now she's looking at one that five other people are looking at. I sure hope this lady has a heart and gives her puppy to Mom. Mom is really sad and missing me I can tell and it worries me. She needs that puppy to get on with life! Lots of people are praying for her though and that will help her get the right puppy.


Mom's New Puppy

Let me first say that I am glad Mom has a new puppy to bring home soon. Then I will say that I didn't think she was going to get him because it took her so long to pay the deposit. I had to pull all kinds of strings to keep that puppy there for her! Whew! I sure hope Mom appreciates it. I'm sure she does. Mom always appreciated me. And I am having the best time playing! I found Sheba and Casey and we are friends. It sure is nice here. I still miss Mom though. Although she is getting along pretty well without me I know how she misses me. I wanted to write this so she would know I am well and having fun.
