I think I underestimated just how hard it would be to train as a therapy dog. I thought I’d just go and visit people, act all cute and get some treats and loving. But oh no, mum’s got this idea that on top of everything else she’s got to train me not to jump up on anyone – doh!
Does she not realise I’m a Beardie, has she never heard of the Beardie bounce? We’re designed to bound around, it’s in our nature…..
I get so excited when I hear Dad come home from work each day, I know the sound of the garage door now….as soon as I hear it I go rushing to the back door to see if he’s there.
When he comes in I have to try really hard not to jump up on him or he won’t fuss me. My main problem is my butt, it won’t stop moving around, it makes sitting really hard. I think my wagging tail is what causes the excessive butt movement and I have absolutely no control over my tail…..I hope they realise just how much effort I’m putting into this, I so want to be a therapy dog, just like my virtual doggy buddies Spike and Dru, who’ve just started their therapy dog visits…..
