Oh Trotz!

Having a service dog is very different from having a pet. If Trotz were a pet, likely, we would not have gone in to the Vet’s office today, maybe.  There are plenty of topical treatments and home remedies that we may have tried before loading him up and heading the […]

Coming back…at last!

Well, folks…I’m almost back! It is such a relief to have both hands working again.  It’s four weeks post-op and I am healing amazingly well. Trotz is happy to be back at work also. We are home from a trip to Georgia so many posts are about to come up…so […]

Hotels and Service Dogs

Good Morning! Again.

Good morning from the woods!  Beautiful morning out.  We’ve discovered this several times this morning. Our little visitors, Ewok and Molly, were first up at the crack of dawn.  I didn’t appreciate this as I had just gone to bed 5 minutes before the crack of dawn.  I crawled out […]
