CAROLINE has been making wonderful progress in her training. We've been working very hard on her attention and heeling while out in public and I am very impressed with how hard she works and how quickly she's coming along. We've been to Target, Walmart, Concord Mills Mall, Dick's Sporting Goods, Marshalls, Bed Bath and Beyond, Staples, Starbucks, Panera...all of those multiple times. Each time we go out she shows more and more focus and attention. It's a really lovely to watch her grow and mature in her training. Also, she and I were down at Ft. Stewart this week working with Jeff. Jeff is doing a great job handling her in all kinds of stressful situations. I think my favorite part is walking several feet behind the two of them and watching them work together and develop as a team. The picture of the two of them walking together in a store that I know Jeff wouldn't be visiting for any reason in the world other than to be with CAROLINE....well, that says it all!
Fiona and I got to visit Jack the other day at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte as well. When I told Fiona we were going to see Jack she was sssoooooo excited she could hardly contain herself. They got to play a little in the rec room (not many toys for kids their age but they found stuff to "mess" with) and then they watched part of a movie, had snack together, took a walk and visited with Jack's neighbors that came also. Fiona was in utter denial at having to leave. All the way out the hospital she kept saying "But I don't WANT to leave! I want to STAY with JACK!"
