A Cautionary Tale

If you are raising a service puppy and blogging about it, and your husband asks you if he should bring the service puppy on a visit to New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, but he sounds somewhat unenthused about bringing said service puppy because he'd prefer to sample his fresh Belgian brew unencumbered, and you say "hey no worries, she'll stay with me," here is my advice: Rather than acquiesce, tell him he must never, ever leave the service puppy at home, because he may wind up having a beer with Jacques Cousteau's granddaughter and wow what a good blog post THAT would have been!

L–R: Mr. Raiser, Alexandra Cousteau, Sister Raiser

Furthermore, if your sister is visiting from out-of-town and she and your good friend are accompanying your husband to said brewery while you hang out at home with another good friend and your dogs and their cat, EVERYONE INCLUDING THE CAT must always URGE your husband to BRING THE SERVICE PUPPY.

L–R: Raiser Friend Extraordinaire, Alexandra Cousteau, Sister Raiser

Finally, if you attend Alexandra Cousteau's talk later that day with aforementioned service puppy, do make sure to feed the service puppy dinner first (even if she has been snarfing down treats all day long) or else she will impatiently pop up every 30 seconds and give you "let's go" eyes, causing you to have to leave the talk extremely prematurely, i.e., before it even begins.

Heed my words and avoid these rookie raiser errors!

It was such a pleasure to meet Alexandra Cousteau and we thank her for her great commitment to environmental concerns. To find out more about Blue Legacy, her initiative to raise awareness about the world's water issues, please click here and here.

Ruby, you are like a celebrity puppy - always meeting interesting people. I've noticed a theme surrounding beer and these types of meetings?? (ha-ha)

LOL...boy do I know that look. Jilly gives me that look everyday starting at least 30 minutes before feeding time! And if you leave your hubby with your doggy to go to yoga and come home to find your doggy giving you that look, ask your hubby first if he fed the doggy or risk giving poor doggy two dinners in one night!

What a great opportunity to meet the Alexandra Cousteau. My hubby got to interview Jean Michael Cousteau recently about Jacques and the oil spill. You can hear it on Speaking Freely on kink.fm over the internet. The Cousteau's are such a dedicated family!
