Monthly Dog Update


Another month gone by and I just keep getting smarter, more handsome, and boy does my handler at PVSP teach me so many things that are going to continue building up my confidence. I love a good rawhide, however, I seem to be chomping them up a whole lot faster than I used to with these big teeth I have now. I still run and chase the other dogs that live here with me, but Nala, who is another lab, is probably the best wrestling partner that I have here. We run, tumble and pounce on each other. I will admit I might have a teeniest weenie crush on her. Anyway, the "We Leash" thing is funny; my handler thinks that he is walking me, but the truth is I'm actually walking him now. I have learned how to carry a bag lunch or anything else in a bag all the way back home from where ever it is that we are. That right there makes everyone smile and say how cute I look; I try. I'm eating much slower and gentler these days, which is a good thing because I want to always be polite out in public places with my handler/ recipient. My handler asks me "touch please," and I touch my nose to the designated spot (lucky me cause I've been getting treats, too). This week, I was introduced to an empty pill bottle for teaching purposes. This, however, was a bit tricky at first cause that was what my handler used to keep kibble in. I realized right away though that I was being taught to retrieve this empty bottle for a reason; so this week I am going to practice going and getting it for Keith. We love and take of each other pretty good, so I always want to accomplish things even if it takes a few tries. Did you know that humans and dogs can actually communicate better than most humans actually do? I think it's because all those technology gadgets that distract humans; a dogs life sure is a to less complicated. I don't eat yucky things off the ground anymore like I used to as a bitty puppy; I learned that it can get me really sick if I eat the wrong things. This month is going to be awesome and I can't wait to learn so much more.
From Delta's Handlers
"Sometimes we start to live our lives the right way after having lived it the way in which I had for many years, (selfishly and poorly), so when you begin to fix yourself, as I always refer it, there’s things that you can’t learn on your own about yourself and that’s how having Delta makes me feel like. Through him I can now learn the fundamental principles on how to value life around me, just as I always should have been; not to mention the true sense of the word 'bond,' (trust)." - Keith
