the last poll showed that yellow labs were your favourite colour, this ones a little different and a bit of fun too .......... Just off out to help choose a new bed for Andy's daughter today, hmmmmmm wonder if they'll let me test it out for them ;-)
I've done two talks this week and the groups were from Probus [retired professional businessmen] and the WI [Womens Institute] they are fun to do and sometimes I get some tea to drink too. Had to vsit my vet this week, for my yearly jabs and general check-up, she said I was in very good health and a good weight & condition too :=) she gave my ears a lovely clean and massage too ..... I loved it!
Andy has been giving quite a few talks for the charity already this year, they can be evenings or at lunchtime, I usually sleep through his bit as I've heard it all before ....... and at the end I show everyone what I can do by pushing down wheelchair footplates, picking up keys or a pen and barking to call for help, I usually get a treat after these talks so I always do my best !
Henry is an Assistance Dog trained by Dogs for the Disabled to help Andy live life to the full.
Andy has tetraplegia after breaking his neck in a cycling accident in '94
Henry can do practical tasks such as opening doors, putting rubbish in the bin and even taking socks off.
The Dog Blog is written by Henry with Andy's help and tells of just some of the things that go on when you own an assistance dog like Henry.
