Today was the first bonding day, we got to spend 2 hours with Teddy. Molly got to give him lots of love and treats to build some trust between them. It was so sweet. Teddy is a real gentleman and such a faithful friend. Tomorrow at 2 pm he will come to us again and it will be forever. We are so excited. It will be our first night with Teddy tomorrow. God is so good!
In the elevator you must make them wait until you have your foot over the door and have the control over the situation so that the dog can quietly enter and be with you without the leash getting forgotten in the situation.
Next she walked TEDDY out to the parking lot to work on loading and unloading the vehicle.
We were told to keep track of unusual behavior. After TEDDY barked for the second time, paced back and forth again, I said, "Molly, I think he may be trying to tell us something! Test your sugar!" She did. It was HIGH! 270! Furthermore, we also figured out how that happened. Her vial of insulin was nearly out, so Molly said that sometimes it will not dispense when it is that low of juice, so she was able to switch out the medicine after noticing it was no longer working. WOW! Just WOW! So we could fix the problem because TEDDY was working. He did just what he was supposed to do.
Molly loves him so much already and already we are beginning to see all that these dogs are able to do, and it is truly amazing! Today for the first half of our day camp, we played hide and seek with TEDDY. This was a very important lesson for him. I would tell TEDDY to go find Molly and he would actually go around the room and find her. Then she would tell him to go find MOM. And he would find me. Even if we tried to hide, he already knows our scent and finds us with his nose. He is both learning our names and our smell, so if for instance, Molly was having trouble, she can tell TEDDY to go get me and he will sniff me out! So cool!
