Therapy Training

So Bokeh went to week 4 of his therapy dog training. What a night that was. Traffic was awful because it was raining. Dad got stuck on the freeway so mom had to run over and get Bokeh from daycare before they closed. Mom and dad got home with just enough time to let us all pee and poo and then they ran off again. I was not a happy camper and I actually barked as they were leaving to let them know that. Mom and dad felt so guilty and wish they could take me with them.

Bokeh started out class by learning a key word to tell him what to do. He learned "go say hi" to teach him to walk up to the walker or wheelchair.

Next week he is training at Polaris Mall. He will get to learn to ride the elevators, use the steps, meet lots of people. Should be fun.

  1. Wow, Bokeh is doing a great job! (I still don't think you should have been left home alone, though.)

  7. One of my very earliest commands was "Go Say Hi" Bokeh is doing a great job...we are all so proud of him. Next time, Sagira, I hope things are not as rushed and that you get a chance to "Go say hi" to your pawrents before they rush off.
