So Ashley and I had a surprise last full day with our buddy yesterday! He went back to the training center with Maddie today because tomorrow we start working with our new dogs. While I did enjoy having the extra day with my sweet Benji, it didn't make it any easier to say goodbye to him. I know that I'll be able to see him, I just need to go to the Training Center more often to see him, but at least he's able to hang out with his brother and a bunch of other dogs and play with all the tennis balls to his hearts content. Before Benji left, I food shared an apple with him one last time and took him to one last class before we saw him off in Maddie's car.
I officially have started working with Ganther, he is moved into the house and ready to go.
