It’s finally happened!! Mom is putting me to work. But first let me introduce myself. My name is Mace and I’m a 13-month-old golden-lab dog. I’m in training to be a service dog some day. My 2-footed mom has had the job of socializing me and teaching me about 30 commands for the last year. She will continue to teach me until August when she will return me to CCI (Canine Companions for Independence) where I will have to go to school for 6-9 months. I have had a pretty easy first year, with a lot of sleeping and just hanging out at the library. But that is changing. Mom explained to me tonight that I will be expected to write a blog for the library. Does anyone know what a blog is? I think that instead of sleeping all day, I’m expected to write about what happens at the library. Maybe I’m expected to be a spy. Wow!! That sounds like fun. I bet I could find out a lot of information. People talk around me all the time because I’m always sleeping but now I will only pretend to be asleep. First, I will have to learn how to type though. I’m not sure my big paws can push down on those little keys. They do offer computer classes at the library upstairs, for people that would like to learn about computers. Do you think they will accept me as a student? If I’m going to “spy” I will have to find out what other programs are going on at the library and check them out. Stay tuned, I will let you know next week what I find out.
