Don’t be scared, guys!
Next week I will be headed to the midwest part of the US to be partnered with my new medical response assistance dog. I have been waiting on a list for about a year and a half now for a dog trained to help me, and it’s going to be very interesting! The dog was trained both by foster families and inmates at a prison for a service dog program and will be with me almost constantly. I have been experiencing many emotions from super excited to extremely nervous and those feelings have gotten more intense the closer I get to my “Team Training” trip. Not only do I not know anything about my new dog partner (not even gender or breed! Any guesses?), but I have also never traveled to this part of the world and so it is really going to be an adventure for me!
I’ll be updating my twitter with pictures and experiences throughout the week. There won’t be a comic next week since I’ll be away from my work station, but I’ve already got several pages in progress so that I don’t become stuck when I get back home.
Enjoy the page!
