well, today, allison april, CLAIRE and i attended the loudoun county chamber of commerce 2011 valor awards. we were invited by lisa, mom of NORMAN, the one and only wonderful mastiff on the northern va paws4people ops team. we were guests at the telos table, and got to attend this wonderful event honoring many brave first responders who saved lives in our community this year.
april came as a purposeful challenge to herself to get through many aspects of this event, but i will let her tell you about that herself when she gets a chance to on her own blog. i took CLAIRE to be april's substitute service dog for the day, as BOURKE is still working on his public access training and wasn't around for me to take this time. i think CLAIRE did the trick though!
we had a lovely time and CLAIRE was a great educator and ambassador, as usual. but tomorrow it's time to conquer homework, for real....
