Please take time and enjoy my experiences raising puppies to be assistance dogs.

Enjoying a day at work
Enjoy a few pictures of Churry at work. These were printed with the parent's permission, of course!
Enjoying a nice belly rub because the students earned a chance to pet at the end of the day!
She loves "holding hands".
Still working on riding in the car without our kennel. Obviously, in our lap is not the best choice, but it's better than in MY lap while I'm driving! She does really well some trips, but this particular morning she was NOT getting in! She was pulling back, throwing her head around and everything else to try to get away from me. I had to resort to lifting her in so we could get to work on time!
Hanging out during class time.
Finally relaxing a bit towards the end of the ride.
Waiting patiently to lead the kids out at the end of the day. You can't really tell in this picture, but Churry is doing an excellent job of walking through the mobs of kids on a pretty loose leash and not soliciting attention when we travel around the building. And she does a really good job at ignoring the kids who are soliciting attention from her! I could tell on Friday that this whole work thing was already "boring" to her. She adjusts so well to new experiences and places! I can now work on some specific tasks with her while she's visiting.
