Meet Smores. A chocolate lab pup. He belongs to the parents of a girl I work with. Smores is in the Paws with a Cause program. Dogs are adopted for some amount of months (15 or so), trained then are turned over to the training program where they get training to be a helper dog, kind of like the ones you see with blind people. Pretty cool eh?
So you get the dog during the fun days of waking up in the morning to anything that is important to you chewed up, destroyed and eaten. Then you give it up after all that. I don't know.. actually, I don't know if i could go through that first 15 months again! Henry wore me out. :)
