“Little guy helped me teach “winter safety” to about a hundred elementary school kids. He was amazingly patient with the chaotic kiddos and did a great job knocking out 17 different search demonstrations. Very proud of the little beastie. #preventativesarprogram #hugatree #k9life

Jamboree at 6 years 5 months
“Sundance Elementary School had an awards assembly on May 28th. Jamboree was asked if she could carry the literacy reading program medals around her neck as achievement laminated program certificates, which included Jamboree’s picture, were handed out to both classes.  Afterwards, she received hugs from students, parents, and teachers, all saying how much their children loved the reading program and Jamboree.  One student cried as he hung on to her ‘I love you, Jamboree, and I’m really going to miss you this summer. ‘”

Ruger’s owner sent a flash drive of photos from the day they took him home until recently.
I created a special page for them.
Charis at 6 years 2 months
“The first photo is of Charis trying to look like he is NOT in Ruger’s bed. In the other, he is gazing longingly at Ruger’s food. You can’t see it, but he is sitting next to his own empty bowl, which he just finished. Silly boy!”

Charis at 6 years 1 month
“I must tell you about Charis. In February the Denver airport is doing something called a puppy love parade. They asked that some of us with bigger dogs come down to shoot a promo video for it, so Charis & I went. There were seven of us & Charis was the chosen one.  The photographer strapped a harness & a GoPro camera on him & had us just go about our visiting.  Charis did so, totally ignoring the harness & camera, which was on his back. After a while the photographer moved the camera onto Charis’ chest, (dog’s eye view, I suppose) & again he totally ignored it. He’s funny about being petted on his head – he even ducks away from us sometimes – but he gave his paw to lots of people & “talked” to them, to their delight. He also posed for still shots, nice sit, ears erect. The photographer loved him. I can hardly wait to see the video! Here are a couple of pictures I got. I wanted you to know, so you can be as proud of our big boy as I am.”

 Jamboree at 6 years 4 months

Photos 4-9:  “Jamboree greeted and visited with over 100 children at the Visitation and Advocacy Center’s annual Mother’s Day Bazaar booth, held May 7th at the Gillette Camplex from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.  She generally lies flat on her side so several kids can pet her at the same time. Belly rubs are the best, you know.  VAC staff gave out hand-decorated bars of soap so the kids could give them as Mother’s Day present.”
