Hey everyone! Well I’ve had a bit of trouble with this blog thing,but ehh.. I found a way… Well a lot has happened since I got here as you’ve heard… The food is awesome. Haha I can’t remember what I had because right after I was put in a food coma,haha just kidding. Well the past two days we have been doing some obedience training with JUNO. That is the standard name for their simulation training. That’s the “dog’s” name. we mostly did the sit, down, stay, and heal commands. More will come. Ya’ll are probably noticing my grammar and punctuation and yada yada isn’t all to par with a future English degree… but o well. Haha. Yesterday and today we went to the downtown lounge and we did some juno traing with an actual harness but it was being controlled by an instructor. On Tuesday we did get a taste of a real dog but they were just beginning their training for a guide dog so they still gogt distracted a bit so it gave us a look at what to expect for corrections and bad behavior. The traiing went well downtown as well all the holding on to shoulders gave me a lot of practice for walkling with the harness so I got a lot of good remarks about that. Soooo… to the big day. I never thought it was really going to come from the time Nat got me their number to apply till about 3 o’clock today..I finally got her… Egypt… She is a yellow lab and she weighs 61 pounds, and is 23 inches tall. Her birth day is July 11th and she will be 2 this year. So when she walked in the room I was grinning ear to ear… to bad the lady didn’t have her haha. How cruel right… But then about 10 seconds later the right lady came in with her… It was awesome she came right p to me and started licking me… and the camera… but the only thing I could think was wow. Right when I hooked my leash up to her she made a few circles like if she were preparing a nest to sleep and she sat right between my legs. When it came time to do some healing exercises… and no she isn’t a priest haha. She did surprisingly well. Everone was having to correct their dogs several times but I only had to correct her twice. She loves to shake hands so ya’ll can try that some day… … Readers discretion advised… She pooped pretty well with me to. They say they take a while to get comfortable but she did it like a champ… I’m so proud haha not really I’m gonna have to do a lot of cleaning. Well I need to take a shower cause she licked literally every bit of exposed skin and hair she could. I will have more to say once the excitement dies down a bit, but tune in for more sometime. Haah take care everyone love ya’ll and hope to talk to you soon. Feel free to call me I have my phone on vibrate so if I miss it I will get back to you as soon as I can. Bye
