Mom's only been to Colorado once, other than stops in the Denver airport - it is so beautiful there. We need to get her to take us there for a vacation.

Beautiful fall - and happy pups.

Wow! That is beautiful. It's been such an amazing fall around here. We had snow last Monday, and it's a little cold and gloomy today, but otherwise ... a warm, lovely season. (and, I hate this time of year).

How much of this kind of freedom and downtime to working dogs get? I sometimes feel sad that they seem to be on duty all the time.

Hi Roxanne - Thank you for your thoughts, I guess the same concern could be shared for pet dogs, too; some pets rarely get the opportunity to know a life beyond their own front door. Most of us only see service dogs while they are working, but when it comes to downtime, I can speak for the teams that I've known -- the dogs are absolutely cherished by their partners and are besotted with their humans in return. They get plenty of love, playtime, toys, and exercise with their partners and partners' families. I could never keep up with the kind of exercise a service dog gets from trotting next to his partner in a motorized wheelchair -- they can really fly!
