Then today she put it on a drawer where a lot of metal things humans use to eat are kept. She told me to tug and I did and the drawer opened! Mom was really happy and said I was a Very Good Dog and gave me a really yummy treat. We did that for a while then she moved it to the door. She told me to tug and I did and closed the door!
She is also making me do a "practice alert" that we can show our trainer so I can be certified (whatever that is). Mom says we are going to take a test with our trainer in 2 or 3 weeks so I can get my certification.
I've gone to physical therapy with Mom twice this week and she said I did great. I laid by all of her exercises and was quiet, even when people talked to me. Today Mom went to get something called an x-ray where she laid on a table that moved and made funny noises. I stayed in the room with her to make suer everything was ok. After that we wen to Target and Mom talked to 2 different people about me. One man said his wife had a dog that was his wife's eyes! He was very nice and said I was a Good Dog. Then a lady asked about me and petted me, even though Mom told her I was working. I knew I was still working so I just sat by Mom and wagged my tail. Mom said I did the exact right thing!
And now, finally, here is a picture of me in my service dog gear.
