Otto practicing "Sit" and "Stay" among the temptations of a store full of dog food!
How to get a Labrador Retriever into a bathtub? A chair, a towel, and four days of training. (Millie's future charge lives in an apartment, so she needs to be able to be bathed indoors, especially in the winter.)
Homer being a good dog at a restaurant!
I kind of can't decide which picture is cutest. Bailey loves being there for his boy!
Millie, tired after a long day practicing "public access" at stores, the library, and PetSmart.
Bailey's boy is often in his own little world - but over the months, the boy has been (slowly) letting him into his world, and his boy is learning that Bailey is always there for him and is not going away! Well done, doggie!
Millie gazing adoringly up at her future owner.
Otto loves his new dinosaur!
Millie now loves jumping into the tub, even without a chair to help her! Edit: Years later, we install a new professional dog-washing station.
Haven's boy's mom sent a great text - "Haven slept with her boy all night in his top bunk. She wouldn't leave his side!" Yay! Happy dance!!!!!!!
