|Little Guy walking Rex with our trainer in Belk Department Store|
Wow! What a week it's been! Rex arrived on April 1st as planned, no joke, and we've been working ever since. He has so much to learn and so do we! He is a wonderful dog and has alerted us of high and low blood sugars too numerous to count all the while. We're in the midst of potty training, crate training, staying "under" while we eat at restaurants (that means, staying under the table without crying or whining), walking beside us in stores, restaurants and parking lots and doing all this while alerting us of highs and lows. If your head is spinning thinking of all that in one week for us and a little puppy, then you're spinning just like us - it's been a whirlwind, to say the least.
Truth be told, I'm worn out, so I won't spend much time posting today, but suffice it to say that he is an amazing little diabetic alert dog and wonderful companion. Here's a picture of him after a long day of "alerting" and learning to behave while in public. We all sort of feel like that here.
