Dog Fest Walk 'N Roll is finally here! We're hoping the rain holds off for our fun walk! Tonight we went back to the park to do some final touches and to change the layout of our event. It's going to be great and our stage is now under a covered area.
We love Johnson-Springview Park! They have a GREAT dog park, just for service dogs and puppies in training.

Battier had an awesome 1st Birthday today! We had a puppy party on the tennis court with some of her dog friends. They played for a little over an hour and had homemade Frosty Paws! I blended yogurt, peanut butter and carrots together and added a carrot sprinkle to the top! The dogs LOVED them. Good news for Battier and Shawn is I have left overs for tomorrow.
Tonight we had fun doing a demo on Canine Companions for Independence for a local Girl Scout troop! Nancy with Service Dog Becky and John with Hearing Dog Courtney joined us for the presentation! It was awesome. The girls asked a lot of great questions and definitely enjoyed our visit. Becky is 11 years old and will be retiring soon. Courtney is 5 years old.
