I had a good phone interview to get a successor to Claren on Friday.
The interviewer said there were no problems, and we talked about what type of dog I wanted. I said outgoing. She suggested affectionate.
When we started talking about commands, that was when I got excited. I said I mainly wanted a dog who'd carry and retrieve things. No problem.
Then I said I wanted a dog more into speaking on command. She then suggested a dog that could be trained to get someone when I fell, and the fall would be the trigger. Awesome!
I was starting to think how fun working with a new dog would be.
And my plan to wait until Claren isn't around works, too, because they have a backlog of graduates who need new dogs.
Of course, getting excited made me feel sad about Claren, who had trouble walking up the icy ramp tonight.
