THat is exactly why i did this. all those people go AHHH and LOOOK and laugh and tell him he's a good dog. His tail goes thumpa thump, He is enjoying this. He may not care much for the glasses and is indulging me purely because i asked him please, but the rest of it is right up his alley. ANd the side benefit isn't bad either, this reinforces the training i have insisted on. THis cements his faith in me and his trust is complete. THat in turn will make future training even easier. He is slick to walk with, smooth, even with a bucket he is loose leashed. WE walk as a team with a "job" to do. I love that.
btw..he adores miss dreamies that coo over him, he is no fool, when he saw the plaza women he was more then willing to put on the charm. He is such a dog.

WE gave it one last go this afternoon. The weather was glorious, and it is all forecast gloom for next week. One tour, one half hour, 77 dollars. More pictures, lots and lots of cameras. He would sit and hold his bucket, collect the money and we would move on. I don't think i could explain the Gabrial fund one more time if i had to, that is a lot more work then it sounds. WE will still try for halloween night when we go with Hyia and that will be that for this big idea of mine.

I was just stunned.I showed Mom and she was stunned. I had no idea we would get a reaction like today. A half hour is long enough, i wouldn't ask him to do this more then that for i can tell when he has had enough, and isn't engaging with the people anymore, we stop right there. WHen it starts being no fun, then you shoudln't be doing it. THere was one very nice young lady with Ds that was quite taken with VIc. Her parents said she doesn't interact with dogs and were surprised at her reaction. THey gave her a dollar and she put it in his bucket, and he held as still as could be while she reached out to touch him and tried to catch his waggin tail.. I wish we would have had our cards made out but i really thought i would be doing this next weekend not this. Just got to move when the weather is good. SO yay, that is over for the most part. THursday he will hand out his cards when he visits the nursing home and i will have achieved my goal. I still need to redesign my cards, i realized that the orange type i put on his pic pleased me but will not be visable at all for many he will visit so i am going to put his pic on a white background and use a good contrasting large type. That will be tomorrow's project
