Bike Fest! My raiser had such fun she missed getting a video, but at least we headed back out for a photo.... and a photo of a Layton's donut too. Woof!

What a great place to get the words “at ease!” ... I mean, a pup has got to get a bit frisky on the beach, don’t you know. Woof! #sandbetweenmytoesandundermynose #servicedogintraining #herodogsinc

Guess what people! My raiser and her human brought me to the oshun! We had a lot, and I do mean A LOT of fun, so much that she's behind sharing with you all. Until she does, here's me sniffing the salty breezes, my toes in the sand. Woof, people, woof!

Sometimes after a swim I'm in the mood for a little track & field. Woof!

I practiced walking loose leash in a grocery store .....my biggest challenge has always been to keep my nose off of the floor searching for snacks... voila! My raiser was so happy that we made such a good team today!

Saturday night at The Derby... its like they made a million new scents just for that place! Whew, it was tough keeping my nose out of the ground. My raiser said I did ok, but I could do better, you know? (But hey, I was really pretty good ignoring other dogs there... we've been working on that, so my raiser was happy with that... It's important that a service dog focus on his person no matter what is smelling good or going on. I'm going to keep working on that as I grow up. Woof!

I don't know exactly what this was.... It's like a wheelchair, kind of, except it pushed itself.... my raiser and I walked along side it while the woman and my raiser chatted. I walked between the two and as long as my raiser was good, so was I. That'll be my job: watch for when my veteran needs me. Woof.

Sunday Funday starts with brunch at Isabella's downtown! My humans tell me it was so delicious, and then a few of the waitstaff told my raiser that they were surprised that I had been under the table the whole time ... that's a win/win!

My raiser is participating in "Pay It Forward Frederick," to help out the many owner-run stores and restaurants in Frederick, so we went to The Kitchenette on Market St to buy a gift card... very nice floors, and I bet the things out of my view were really nice too!... and that Cake To Die For? That just sounds too, too awesome! .... a few errands and we called it a day. (A worker at Giant told Barbara that she recognized me from before, and that I'm always so well behaved! Yay! And woof!)

Lazy weekends are meant for relaxing either my step-sibs. I love this Biscuit! (Playing gently with lil doggos might come in handy if my veteran has other dogs. I mean, not all dogs play rough and tumble like labs play, after all! Woof!)

I get a sleepover tonight with Kimberlee and Kevin, who raised that awesome @herodogsdip! Now that Dip is off at HD college, Kevin's even going to take me to work too! (and until then, I'll play with Oliver... yay)
Opportunities to go to an office now are really helpful for me, since my veteran or responder who needs my help when I grow up might work in an office.

Ok people, get this! My raiser and her human took me into a cave... a hole in the ground, real live cave!... so I smelled things I never smelled before, and sometimes it was kinda dark, and there were echos (especially when the children screamed, and then the human dad yelled at the screaming children. Sheesh) Anyway, it was definitely not like anything I ever experienced before. It was cool, both temperature-wise and experience- wise. Woof.

When you see this picture, you're looking at something pretty special. You see,, my momma, @herodogsclara, had 3 litters, that's 18 puppies. Of those 18, there are only 3 black pups... and that's my sister @herodogsNevada, my brother @herodogsgrover, and me!

While out on our adventure (more on that later) my raiser, her human, and I stopped off at a statuary place, and look who I found. He surprised me a bit, so I checked him out thoroughly before I deemed it safe for my raiser and me to pass... rather standoffish, he was. Woof.

See that toy? It’s a Lolly PUP... like me, a pup! We hit a trifecta of places today, running errands. Someone had stuck gum under the bar, but I left it alone like the good pup that I am. I’m not 100% perfect yet, but sure am much better about leaving food (and gym) alone... because why? Because I’m a 🐕‍🦺 in training! #herodogsinc #servicedogintraining #blacklab @ Frederick, Maryland

My raiser treated herself to some new electronics at @bestbuy so we took advantage of the opportunity to look around. (I think this red stove would be perfect for any hero dog!) We also found a nice little cubby to practice my "back" command, and a couple of wheeled carts with different surfaces. (Unfortunately, she was not willing to wheel me around the store, which seems like it might a been fun).
