aaron's service dog update
my sister, aaron and i went up to brigadoon to meet aaron's dog. i learned a lot about service dogs today! i thought we'd meet "the one" since this was aaron's second visit... but not so. we went up and met with seven dogs. the trainer, denise, brings some of her up and coming dogs in, one at a time, to watch them with aaron. she watches how he reacts and interacts with the dog, and how it interacts with him. today, gypsy looked like the best match. they'll go back in a couple of weeks and meet with them again, and see if any more connections are formed. finding "the dog" is the first step. once they find the dog that clicks best with aaron and his needs, they will start training it to meet his specific needs. it's quite the process. i'm sure we'll learn so much more as we go.
my sister, danica, will post more pictures of our trip today on aaron's blog... and lots more info about our trip today. thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers!
