Yesterday and today I took Janda to school. As I thought, she did very well! The only signs of stress occurred when I took out the head collar. After it came off, she was great. This is a dog who responds very well to flat collar corrections when she’s not around other dogs or being pet by people.
The bummer is that Tuesdays and Thursdays I have 2 2-hour classes and then I sit around and study for 2 more hours. So Janda is certainly learning how to sit quietly under a desk.
Her test was today, and she passed with flying colors! The disability resource director couldn’t say enough good things about her, and told me she was welcome to come drop by her office any time.
After the evaluation, Janda and a couple friends of mine, and I sat on the lawn and studied for the remaining 2 hours. She really enjoyed watching all the people walk past, and especially the go-kart, bikers, and skateboarders.
After a while, she decided studying wasn’t her thing. THIS is how Janda feels about Geology. (Sorry Prof M!) That’s it for school! She might not be able to come as often anymore because my parents might have changed their minds. But I’m sticking with the original plan for now and she’ll be back in class on Thursday (tomorrow I’m learning the gym equipment and don’t think it’s the best day to introduce her to it).
