Chloe is certified!!

Well Jennifer finally fulfilled a long time dream of hers, to have a service dog. She was insistent she didn't want to have a Lab or Golden since she works so long at a shelter and prefers mixed breeds. The funny part to this story is that we ended up getting her sisters dog at 8 months old and she is a purebred Boston Terrier. The breed is known for its energetic enthusiasm for life. They can be hard to calm but are very loving and attentive.  Jennifer decided that she would be a good service dog and started training her to do things like pick things up, retrieve things for Jenn etc.


We went through all the tests, applications and received our service dog license last week! We are legal! Jennifer is also taking some advanced training classes with Teryn, and amazing dog trainer! We want Chloe to alert someone if Jennifer is hurt or needs us. I am so proud of both of them, they are amazing. Here are some photos from class today and I the sketch I did of her for the International Postcard Exchange can be viewed by clicking the link on the right, Postcards from my walk.
