Cara. Service Dog in Training

My daddy has finally excepted going places with mom and me. Sometimes he seems to enjoy having me there. No matter how many times mom tells him not to, he still sneaks me treats at the table when we go to restaurants so I love going with him. He'll tell people I'm a medical alert dog and tell them I'm allowed places too.

Mom sent in an application to teach about service dogs at next year's Legal Nurse Consultant conference. Unfortunately they said "no". Mom was pretty disappointed. If she can find the energy and self-discipline she may try to write a journal article then maybe she can teach in 2011.

I'm generally so good in public, but my mom wonders if I could ever pass the public access test as I just don't want to be away from her side for a second so I don't like to do sit/down stays no more than a couple seconds. I'm not great at heeling either (you would think a "blue heeler" would heel better). When we're out walking she doesn't really ask me to heel 'cause if I'm close she likes to trip over me.
