Mom has been hogging the computer lately

So I know it has been a really long time since I've updated. Mom has been having some problems, so I've had to take care of her. She says now I will be able to update more frequently since she thinks people will want to hear about my journey.
I am still training to become my mom's certified assistant dog. We are getting my new backpack soon and I can't wait! Mom says it will be much easier for her to get into and that I will even be able to carry a notebook for her if I need to go to school with her! Mom is also making my "Service Dog in Tra
ining" patches so we can start my training in new places like Wal-Mart, the library, salons and other places I'm not usually allowed to go.
I've also learned a new trick! It is called touch and all I have to do is touch my nose to Mom's hand when she asks. I get cheese when I do it! Mom says that now I'm going to learn to touch things like light switches, doors and stuff Mom drops. She says I will learn to pick things up, turn lights on and off and open and close doors for
Just in case anyone was worried that my life is all work, I do get time to relax and play. On July 4th, Mom's whole family came over and we all got to hang out by the pool! All of the dogs that live here were outside and we had so much fun! Here, you can see me and my new little sister Lola chilling in the sun!
