WoooHooo! My second chance to help train a Service Dog team for Hearing and Service Dogs of MN turned out sucessfully today when JJ and Kao (the lab) passed their certification!

JJ fractured his C3,C4 in a boating accident July 4, 2001 and is paralyzed except for limited use of his arms. He works as a telephone operator for Walmart in a town about an hour from me.

Kao getting told "leave it" during the public access part of certification....

Most of us (myself including) talk about making a difference. But few actually do. Thanks for being you.

Wow Sarah! Such a profound life altering change for the good because of your dedication. You truly have been blessed and pass that blessing along to others. :-)

Thank you all, but the real trainers are the puppy raisers, foster homes and trainers at HSDM, I just guide the client through the learning once the dog is ready!

It is a great big warm fuzzy for me when they don't need me anymore! And I can't imagine NOT doing it, I'd hate the thought that even one person couldn't get a hearing or service dog 'cause they couldn't find someone out here in the sticks to help once they got the dog home.
