It is hard to understand a person dog partnership. I have been in two previous partnerships before I came to school this time. They have been wonderful. My second partnership with Elwood started off rockily, but grew into something special. It was so hard to decide to end it.
When I received Chance as my new dog, I was disappointed. He was black, not yellow. He had a rough coat and he was kind of stubby. I couldn’t get a handle on his personality. He did what I asked. I couldn’t fault him for anything except his walking speed. He seemed slow.
