Guess what? When I am "stuck" in my walker and can't move, Lolo will tug on the front of it and help me get in the right position to move my feet again. But I was thinking.......why doesn't she just tug me to where I want to go?? Hmmm, we'll have to work on that.
Thank you all for your comments!! I read them to Sam and he smiles and laughs.
Today we went down to the Harbor to practice our skills in public. Lolo and Sam were once again on their best behavior ignoring all smell, animal, and people distractions. At one point Lolo did get spooked at something - we couldn't figure out what. Instead of staying by the wheelchair, she quickly hugged my leg and proceeded with caution. She also likes to step "around" bird poop on the ground and not dare put her paw on it. What a little lady! It was fun to see her tug at Sam's walker to get him in position and then when he reached her, she stood on the lower rim of the walker and gave him some praise. He loved it!!!
We are ramping up for our upcoming public certification test, our written exam, and final performance evaluation. Hope all goes well!!
