After saying goodbye to Christopher & the rest of Missoula I took off in my packed car for the two day drive back to PA. I don't recommend doing thing drive by yourself in two days. The drive took me through 9 states, 5 of which I now get to mark off my atlas. On my last night I stayed w/ TJ & his family in upstate Ohio. Finally the day came when I got to pick up my new little girl. On May 16th I rolled into West Alexander & picked up my new little girl, Skyler. She's an 11 month old blue merle bitch that will be going through the National K-9 program w/ me. I'm very excited to have her in my life & it's been awesome having a dog at my side once again. She was kept by the breeder as a show prospect but wasn't working out in the show ring. She is comfortable making the switch from kennel dog to house pet. Just wanted to share some pictures w/ everyone. There will be plenty more to come so get used to seeing her face. :-) Especially once we return to Montana as I have high hopes for this girl & I to get our certifications in Animal Assisted Therapy once we return home at the end of the summer. Keep us in your thoughts w/ this as I know nothing about it other than the small amount of research I have begun & if you have any information you would like to share w/ us about it, please do! We're both eager to learn.
p.s. I still haven't found my cord yet but as I spent all of last Saturday taking photos for my sister & her fiance for their engagement she took the liberty of buying a memory card reader for me so I can finally start editing her photos... now all I need is for Christopher to hand over some of his skills!
