(The weather today is disappointingly cold, so rather than tell you about that, I have decided to introduce you to Beau.)
This is Beau. He is about the same age as Sofie but much better behaved. Beau is in training. If all goes well, he will one day be a Guide Dog for the Blind. Right now Beau lives with some of my good friends and he will stay with them until he is about 18 months old. The R's are helping with the initial stage of Beau's training process. When that is complete he will move on to a higher stage of training. Beau goes every where with the R's, except church 'cause the pastor said no. He goes to the horse barn several times a week and I saw him up at the Apple Blossom parade too. When went on our Maple Syrup field trip, Beau was there. It is important for him to be exposed to as many different social experiences as possible and also to learn specific commands. When he needs to go potty he rings a bell by the door. I have noticed he gets lots of treats for good behavior. (I bet he doesn't poop on the floor like Sofie.)
Sonny James RIP.
