My Working Aussie And The Two Pups!
by Ana Laura Chavez
Morgan, Mota and Gala are my three Aussies. I have trained Gala (the one in the right) to be an assistance dog for a person in a wheel chair. In Mexico assistance dogs are not allowed in restaurants, stores of any kind, public transportation etc. (except assistance dogs for the blind) is a very sad thing : ( . Gala and I go to schools, universities, public parks, fairs and anywhere we can to show people how a dog can help a person in a wheel chair. She knows how to turn lights on and off, she can ring bells, bring keys, glasses, remote control, medicines or anything you drop or need. She can take my socks and my jacket off, she opens and closes doors and drawers. She is just great!
The first time we gave an exhibition, she was so nervous that she farted all the way through. She just stunk the place up!!! Now she just loves the attention and all the clapping. She really made my life so much better. She is a frisbee and agility lover!!
Morgan and Mota are in training right now. They are two pups doing what they do best, play and make me smile!!
