The weather was so nice this afternoon i decided i would take Vic down to the plaza and give our Trick or Treat for the humane society a try. We parked in what i thought was an easy to remember place then put his glasses and and head reflector on, (he already had on his therapy vest) then he got his bucket and off we went. A half hour later he has collected 33 dollars, had his picture taken a dozen times, was hugged by a curly headed little boy that just couldn't stop, and helped me find the car. I was almost in a panic because we were parked in a 2 hour spot but if i didn't find it soon i was awful afraid i would be paying a big ticket for our fund raising efforts. I had him carry the bucket for about 15-20 minutes, then we would take everything off and take a break where he played with his wind up mouse or got a drink. THe pets for life administrator thinks that carrying a bucket is a great skill for a therapy dog. IT sure works for fund raising! THe fact that he is "DOC VIC" doens't hurt either when i explain to people that we are collecting for the GAbrial fund. The money goes to help the animals that come in that need extra medical care that would otherwise cause them to be put down. So here is a piece of cheese for VIctor and a good dog for his efforts. YAY!
