Photo Pupdate: At The Wheel

Part of Ruby's education includes getting comfortable as she keeps pace next to a wheelchair. I imagine for a service dog in training, it's kind of like learning how to drive.


She needs to be close to the wheel...but not too close. With the patience and experience of her advanced trainer, Ruby looks like she's nailing it. I'm sure she can parallel park much better than I can, too!

P.S. Don't forget to vote for Raising Ruby, Best Cause Related Blog and Best Blog Post. Help us raise awareness for service dogs along with the awesome chance to donate $2000 to golden retriever rescue. Just click here (you can submit a ballot twice daily): 2011 Petties Awards

As always, thanks to sweet Sue and Ruby's terrific advanced trainer for the photo.

I sometimes get careless and wag my tail too much, that could hurt if it got caught. Ruby is doing great. Love the work she is doing. We are on our way to vote! Remind them to vote twice a day, for two catagories. That is the rule.

Ruby is so very good at what she needs to do. We just know we would be forever getting our toesies run over - we have a bad habit of walking in front of Mom.

Here's hoping for a big win.

WOW, she is a rockstar. She is doing so great. She is such a quick study! How special to get photos of her while she is in college.
