When I don't listen to him
Natural Balance Lamb & Rice Roll
Joel was adopted out of a kill shelter in Kentucky at around 2 years old. He was so abused by a former owner that the shelter was not even going to try to adopt him out. They said that if anyone got near him, that he would lie down and scream. But Pam (who ran the Fort Knox, Kentucky Service Dog program called AIM HI) said that when she looked in his eyes she just had to take him and try. To make a very long story short, Joel can to live with me at 3 Ã‚Â½ years old. He is the best Service Dog in the whole world. I am not bias am I, Ã¯ÂÅ .
People ask me if I brought any gold back from going to Fort Knox, Kentucky to get him. I always say, I brought back a GOLDen retriever, with GOLDen brown eyes and a heart of GOLD. I could not ask for anything more then that.
Joel is my Mobility Service Dog and also Medical Alert.

Joel and I are at the 4 day dog show at the Union Fairgrounds in Maine. We are doing rally Novice B. I did not get any time before coming here to practice with Joel on any of the exercises. But we got are 3 legs for the title with a 94,
96 and 89. The 89 was my fault I went right instead of left and then he braced me when I lost my balance a little. The last leg we got 98 and first place. so i have a 4 legged dog :)
So Today was just for the fun of it.
Joel is know a 4 legged (his fourth leg) dog.
He did great and got a 98 and the 1st place blue ribbon for me and doggie cookies for him and a cute little basket which he took the handle of it in his mouth and looked around to say, aren't I great as he pranced out of the ring.
