    DefaultMy Girl

    My girl Piper, what a wonderful ambassador to the breed she is. Piper is in training to assist me with the R.E.A.D. program at our small town's newly opened public library. This has long been a dream of mine...but that is another story for another day.

    Today is the state Special Olympics. Thought I would bring Piper along to see how she did with the crowds. Plus, she did double duty-cheering on her "uncle" Dave as he was competing as well!

    Piper was amazing. Truly, truly amazing. She used her soft paws, gave 'baby kisses', didn't jump (even when she really wanted to!) She weaved her way in and around the throngs of people, healing on a loose lead. She sat politely to meet new people--loads, and loads of new people! There was that one embarrassing bowel movement incident. But, we can't be completely perfect, can we?

    Everyone loved her. Kids and adults flocked to her. I am so very proud of my little girl. Believe me when I say this--she has come a looonnngg way!

    It was hard to get pictures of her as she was continually surrounded by people giving her loads of loving. I was able to snap a few.

    Typical scene-


    Making an excellent choice to not jump up.


    Just hanging out with my nephew-


    And, just because. A picture of the true star from today, my handsome brother David, winning the bronze for the shot put.


    Murphy, Riley, and Piper

    Congrats on two stars of the day!
    Now I need to know the secret for "no jump" training.
    NOTHING has worked with Flynn.

    Lovely! I wish I could do that stuff with Abbey, but she still hasn't calmed down at ALL and I am afraid that she would accidentally knock someone over.. some day I hope to, though!

    Piper looks like she had fun, too, enjoying all of the free pets!
