:D Next month...he's got an appt. set up for his TD testing with a local group...Pets On Wheels. :D

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. :nono:

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! 8)

That's so awesome that you pulled the Aussies from Fidos! Rock on!

And I haven't a doubt in the world that Score will pass his therapy test with flying colors! He's a pretty good dog. :wink:

Thanks everyone! I'm quite excited (if you couldn't tell)! I've had plans for him to be a TD for a long time...only to have them crushed recently by Fidos. :( So I'd signed up for Pets On Wheels a few weeks ago, and hadn't heard back...was about to give up when I got an email from them. Our testing date isn't until March 2nd...but I am so excited! :D I have the utmost confidence in my brown puppy...I just have to make sure I get the vet paperwork filled out beforehand and get my part done! lol
