Next month...he's got an appt. set up for his TD testing with a local group...Pets On Wheels.
He was turned away by Fidos because I call him a pit bull mix, and they've suddenly decided that since they're in PG county, that pit bulls or anything similar can't be in the program. Because I call him a pit bull mix (I have no idea what he is...but he's "bully enough" and is such a good boy, I call him a pit mix for good breed PR)...he can't be a Therapy Dog with Fidos. (even if I DNA tested him and found out that he didn't have any pit bull in him, he still couldn't be a Fidos TD since I call him one) When I found out about this, I pulled all three of my Aussies that were TDs with Fidos out of the program...and told them why.
We've missed TD work...so I'm looking forward to this! I think I'm going to retire Ripley and Xander from Therapy work...and Sawyer...we'll see, since he's already a Service Dog still.
I think Score is going to enjoy this!
