Today was full of new experiences for Maggie. We went to the PA Farm Show to watch one of my granddaughters perform in competitive square dancing (her group got a Blue Ribbon…yea) and decided to take Maggie with us to give her some new experiences such as meeting a cow, lot’s of people -young, old, in wheelchairs, in uniform -, climbing and descending stairs, escalators, applause, and loud music. She also was challenged with lots of food on the floor of which she was not allowed to partake. She did a lot of walking, but when it became a bit too much for her, I did carry her. It was a very active evening for her and she did take a long snooze on my lap during the show…music and all. She loves new experiences and is learning so much…she’s going to be a great Service Dog for someone.
I have to say, my favorite picture of the evening was Maggie checking out her new friend nose-to-nose! Fearless Maggie!
