Thank you so much to the donors who brought me up to $750 for August. I will be using all of the August donations to make a payment to Southland Dog Training to go towards Sam's training balance. Thank you all again!

I wanted to thank the last two donors who gave and brought Sam and I close to a one month goal of $750! I just never know if they wanted to remain anonymous or not so to be safe I am not going to recognize you publicly but know you have my thanks and graditude.
Sam's training is coming along great. She knows what the majority of her tasks are and now its just a matter of refining her recognition of when to do them. She also has great public access skills. We just have to work on two issues - squirrels (she is a dog so thats a tough one) and her excitement when she meets another dog (she should outgrow most of that, she really is still a young dog at 18-19 months).
At this point, Sam pretty much goes everywhere with me. I use an over-the-shoulder leash when we shop so we can go "hands-free" and she acts perfect. She's gone out of eat with us and lays in the spot we tell her, and she loves to mall walk! Overall, I couldn't of asked for a better dog for my first service dog.
Thank you again all who have helped here and on my original GoFundMe campaign. It's because of all of you we have able to become a great team.
