7 years a year every year. Good doggo, thank you for your service
I am unworthy to touch the good hard working boy.
My family doctor takes in puppies that will go on to be service dogs and does the initial training. She tracks their progress and what they excel in to steer what kind of service dog they would be best at providing. After that they take her assessments and then the puppies go off to train in whatever field they would be best suited for. She brings them to work and they are always in their little training vests and you can't pet them (even though they are still learning pups and they might try to come to you) and YOU HAVE TO IGNORE THEM Or it could ruin their entire future. I'm convinced my doctor is a robot because I don't know how she can spend each day ignoring their chews and kisses when doing it for 20 minutes kills me.
Oh, agony! Far worse than you've ever known!
You can always ask them if you can say hello to their service animal. They are well trained to know when it’s ok and not ok.
