They were probably calling for Faelan too, but I just couldn't. I did give a heads up to several people that I might not be there, granted for a different reason; in case Towhee went into season (she is due).

But overall, I have to believe that Brady was the one who needed to be in the public eye today; to shine and help bring comfort. It is weird because Casey is my remaining therapy dog but he was happy staying at home today, both when I was doing my round-abouts and when I was at my rental.

Sometimes our teamwork just is not up to our expectations while at sho n gos, I am sorry your Zoe and you had a rough time today, but the stationary exercises are major!! There is another match coming up at Exercise Finished I think in early Jan. Zoe might have also picked up on the general unease that seems to be widespread today.

Things didn't go that well for Zoe and me but not a complete disaster. She handled the sits and downs well and the stand for exam was fine. We won't talk about the rest. I'm viewing it as necessary exposure to the ring.

It sounds like Brady really did some good work today. It's wonderful that he could bring some comfort to those who are hurting. I actually was wondering if they're using therapy dogs in Newtown. It's close enough that we could get there if Zoe could help.
