October is a time for new beginnings
Well, it certainly has been a month full of excitement. I am really glad that I visited Fenway Park before the fall… and before THE FALL. Even though it was my first time to the ballpark last month, I felt sunny and optimistic about the season- but that’s just me- sunny and optimistic. Perhaps I was feeling the excitement about becoming the official service dog of the Red Sox- yeah, that was it. Certainly I will not get traded, take another job, or drink any beer. I can’t make any promises about eating chicken. I still don’t get what’s so bad about chicken when I have heard about chewing tobacco and bubble gum (both so bad for your teeth). Bones, that’s what I recommend- nothing takes the edge off of a rough day like kicking back and chewing on a bone. That will brighten your smile, and doesn’t leave a mess behind.
Anyway, I am far away from all of that baseball drama trying to focus on my training. I am living with my Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) puppy raisers; they are awesome. I start here, learning basic skills, and then will be able to (hope) move on to the next level and enter training to become a service dog. That is a great deal of pressure; but, being a puppy, I don’t feel it at all. Also, I will soon be able to make some visits back into the city. I hope to make my first official venture a trip to the Red Sox Foundation’s Home Base Program around Veterans’ Day. I love that it is on 11.11.11 this year!
Better go. I think my writer’s block might be lifting- so, stay tuned for more frequent posts.
Love, Fenway the Dog
