Today was our event a the nearby elemtary school, when ourtheapy dog teams present a day of interaction wkids from K to Gr 4. Wesley always loved this day and the steady stream of attention, so it was with great pride that I was able to attend this year with a "dog in training."
Parker did *extremely* well w/the kids, lapping up the attention and giving a whole day's worth of kisses. He was a little vocal during some of the presentations -- but not nearly as much as I had feared. I loved the little girl who asked, "Why is your dog squeaking??"
And another one wanted to know if anyone had rabies. I said: "Dogs? No. Handlers? We're not 100% sure..."
Anyway, it was a great day. And after arriving home at about 4PM, Parker ate his dinner, curled up on his bed, and has been snoring loudly ever since. I'm not even sure he'll go for a nighttime pottywalk. Might just be a sprinke on a nearby tree and back to the sack!

Good boy, Parker! That is so great. At his age, Theo would have taken out several kids with his tail and tongue.
Awww. Sounds like he did great. What a good boy!
Awesome job Parker!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
