Service Dog Mac  I'm a rescue turned owner trained assistance animal. I enjoy educating the public on the ADA, learning new tasks, playing fetch, and snuggling.

Let's get something straight! Skill drills are important, but hiding my leash in the bathroom? What the woof! Arf? Not fair! I deserved every morsel of that jackpot!

Look how cute I am! Pay attention to meeeee!!!!!!! Rubbing my belly is far more enjoyable than working on a business plan.

My handler is teaching me a new command to shred things. Someone suggested "kill it", since it isn't something that my handler would use in conversation. I might have taken it a little too literally. #SorryNotSorry #ToyDown #cliffordthebigreddog #PlayTime #Training #kill #Killit #shredder #shredit #Shred #ServiceDog #servicedogtraining #AlwaysLearning #ContinuingEducation #BlackDog #Lab #Labrador #labrescuelrcp #LabradorRetriever #BlackLab #BlackLabrador #RescueIsTheBestBreed #RescueIsMyBreed #Rescue #AdoptDontShop

My handler used "get it" to teach me to unwrap presents. We also use "get it" for item retrieval (clothes, phone, leash, emergency meds, etc). Today she used "get it" to have me pick up junk mail. I know NOT to shred non-paper items, but her using "get it" to encourage me to unwrap presents confused me. It is very important that every desired action have it's own command.
This is why we practice new skills (or adapting current skills) with things that aren't important. My handler has created more work for herself. She is going to start with teaching me a new command for unwrapping presents. I'm okay with this, I love being allowed to shred paper.

My handler's doctor prescribed NormaLyte to reduce her need for I.V. fluids, but she hasn't been able to find it anywhere that accepts her insurance. She contacted @normalyte , and they were kind enough to send her this. Hopefully this is enough to hold her over while NormaLyte works with a local DME provider that accepts her insurance.
NormaLyte has less sugar than Gatorade, and more salt. NormaLyte is based on the World Health Organisation's guidelines for Oral Rehydration Salts.

It has been really windy! Don't worry, we are safe. Thankfully, the only damage we sustained in this storm was to our Christmas tree. We lost power for a few hours yesterday. We would have updated everyone sooner, but our internet and cell service was knocked out, we just got it back. We hope everyone else is safe. #MyBad #IndoorFetch #Oops #MommyLaughed #NotInTrouble #fightingboredom #ApartmentLiving #ChristmasTree #TreeDown #WindStorm #bombcyclone #noreaster #InspectingTheDamage #ServiceDog #Labrador #Lab #Retriever #BlackDog #BlackLabrador #BlackLab #Rescue #labrescuelrcp #adoptdontshop #rescueisthebestbreed #Rescueismybreed #whosavedwhošŸ¾

Happy New Year! I hope your New Year involves plenty of sunbathing WITHOUT having to share it with your Auntie's evil cat.

Snug as a bug in a rug. Guess how many pairs of the socks she is trying to match are being used as belly warmers?
