Today wrapped up our training with Gus. All fourteen families will test tomorrow in public in order to receive our full certification to have a working service dog. No pressure. But if we mess up, we don't get certified, and have to come back to do this again. Really..no pressure! Dogs have to be fully under control, obey commands, and ignore distractions.
One thing Gus couldn't ignore today was a big mud puddle. He and his brother, Boeing, were running around during their free time, and when Gus got tired, he plopped...right in the middle of the mud puddle. Blond dog + mud = a big mess
He got a quick bath, and will be visiting the groomer ASAP!
We had a pizza party with our friends tonight. More basketball and games outside, and Laura hung out with her newest friend, McKenna. McKenna is also receiving a service dog. We will miss our friends when we all head home.
Off to bed. Need rest. Because tomorrow is a "no pressure" day of testing!!
