WWCD: What Would Clickers Do?

Woof again everybody! Today was a pretty stellar day for my human and me. We went to see her neurologist, and is getting referred to a cardiologist for more tests.  Her eyes aren't any worse, and that'st the most important. Now I bet you are wondering why we titled this piece about clickers, right? See,…

Doggie Dental

My human has tried just about everything to help my teeth, and I mean EVERYTHING! Dental wipes, bones, brushing, greenies, minties, and just about everything that says Dental on it for pups.  And none of them I really liked all that much. Though that don't mean she stopped trying. I got some of the tastiest…

Shopping with Paws

Today we went out to get some grocery shopping done, my human is making some really tasty chicken soup! I can't wait, especially as I get to taste the roasted chicken, lucky me 😛 Shopping isn't easy for my human, her vision is steadily fading. The other shoppers who aren't paying any attention to their…

Cliques

I never really considered how it could be possible for cliques to follow through into the real world. I knew there would always be the "popular" crowd, yet even in what should be a community of understanding, there are still those who see themselves as "above" others. What should be a place for support and…

Blinders

Nothing makes my human sadder than for other humans to keep their "blinders" on. I'm my human's guide. Yes, I'm little. Yes, what I do is different, but it /works/. What's wrong with me doing my job and being a smaller package? Nothing.  We don't fit in a box, and that's okay, because I'm awesome…

What am I?

I know I'm fuzzy and you want to hug me, but please! Stop! If you ask my human, she may say it is okay, but picking me up is /not/. I'm not a toy, I'm not here for anyone but my human. Lots of humans out there get confused over terms, so let's bark it…

I'm a math pro! Least that's what you'll think seeing me count as I do! Really it's just a parlor trick, dogs are great at them. We are special, unlike every other animal on the planet, we're able to read and reciprocate human emotion and expressions!

Size Matters

Size is important, whether its a pony or a Clydesdale. In life, size is always an important consideration, even in service dogs. If you're a new human to the service dog scene, I'm sure you know about my brothers from other mothers; the Labrador, the German Shepard, and the Golden Retriever. They are awesome pals…

Vesting and why we do it

According to the ADA, service animals aren't required to wear a specific harness, vest, or ID tag. Federally they have no requirements for identification besides the two standard questions of "Is this a service animal," and "What tasks/work does he preform?" My human and I vest and fully endorse vesting for ANY SD team where their…

Service Dog 101

Every day we get asked the same questions, some silly, some weird, some that just boggle even the best problem solver. Now I bet all the humans out there wonder the same things, such as, "How can a little dog be working?" "Oh he's too cute!" "Look at that puppy!" I might be cute and…
