12 weeks!

We’re almost to our 3 month mark! But today marks 12 weeks since Domino had his amputation and came to live with me.

Things have been amazing and definitely changed for the better. I was skeptical at first about adding a third dog to my pack, but he fits in wonderfully. Our first 12 weeks have been full of firsts for us both. Domino has learned to trust me as I have him. He now “sits pretty” (sits up) for me to put his Webmaster harness on, and waits for me to lift him from the van. I now know that I can do just about anything to him without worry of his reaction. I dremel his nails by myself, apply his foot lotion, massage him all without him thinking twice about it. It’s hard to believe that just 12 weeks ago he was a forgotten outside dog scheduled to be put down.

This past Friday Domino graduated his beginner obedience class! He passed with flying colors and now we’re just waiting to sign up for intermediate. Hopefully we’re only about 4-5 months away from taking his therapy dog test.

Hopefully our next 12 weeks are as fun as the first!

    Congratulations Domino! It’s great you plan to be a therapy dog. Dogs like you need to work, I can see it in your eyes, they are so alert.

    Have fun in your next round of training. Obviously you have a wonderful family.

    Aw he’s so cute! Congrats on passing your class at the top of the pack! I’m so happy to hear he’s trustingyou and that hhe’s doing so well. I’ve been thinking about trying to certify my trikitty as a therapy cat, but she’s still too young and too new to do that just yet. Hopefully she’ll keep her sweet temperament. Let us know now the therapy class goes!

    Wonderful update!

    Good work Domino and Mom đŸ™‚

    I have no doubts that Domino will be an excellent therapy dog with all the love and support he gets from you – and of course because of his splendid personality.
