Mission Complete (First full weekend out in public)
Dembre sitting in a skywalk in downtown Akron
Dembre did GREAT for our conference this last weekend! He didn't have any accidents (which was exciting, because at home he was showing signs of a UTI). Dembre listened well, maneuvered well, and sat patiently while he got attention from many, many people! It's hard to be bored when you have a dog at your side! I could hardly walk from one side of the convention center to the other without someone asking to pet Dembre. He was good and didn't have a big licking problem. He acted pretty comfortable and relaxed most of the time. I met a former PR, who had raised for Pilot Dogs Inc.. It's always fun talking to fellow service/guide dog raisers! We stayed with my grandparents, who live in a house overlooking a very nice river! Dembre had lots of fun swimming in the river and playing on the rocks. I can tell he's happy to be home, though.
