I have no idea what day we are on, but I do know we go home in 5. I’m not sure if I’m happy about that or not. Yes, I miss myhusband and daughter and family, but when we leave, its just us. I know Keebler will be great, but I also know there will be a lot left to learn and we can only do that in the real world.
We worked through the weekend, but I don’t remember alot of what we did. Oh, except yesterday Stryder wanted to have his dad listen on the phone how he can get Keebler to bark just by saying “bark.” Stryder laid down and did seizure moves and didn’t say a thing when Keebler alerted and barked. It was totally unexpected and exciting.
We went to the mall today and Keebler did great, again. He is a sensative guy and can be spooked easily because of that, but really we haven’t seen a lot of that. We took him to a pet shop with lots of other dogs barking and he was a little nervous but still did outstanding. There isn’t much out there that will be much more distracting so that was encouraging.
We also went on a train that goes around the mall. Stryder really liked it and to be honest, it was relaxing for me too. Keebler just spent the time looking around at everything.
Keebler and Stryder have been doing great together, this has been an amazing journey. Keebler has been alerting to seizures and helping with melt
downs. Stryder has been playing too hard but there are lots of children around and its hard to keep a 6 year old boy down. Keebler will helpnslow him a down a little and Stryder lives to get cuddles from him. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. BUT it is a lot of hard work and nothing I thought it would be. We are so tired, mentally and physically, but it will be so worth it.
