Spirit, Shadow--our cat, and I spent a quiet and joyful Christmas together. We celebrated Spirit's second birthday by watching Marley & Me. It opened in theaters last Christmas on his first birthday. The author and owned dubbed Marley as "the world's worst dog." I could identify, for the first six months I had Spirit I was totally overwhelmed by this giant, uncontrollable dog. He is still very much a puppy, but he is better trained this year.

In honor of all I have learned in training Andre and Spirit as service dogs, I have started a new blog on dog training, . I hope to provide support to all dog owners and encouragement to those training their dogs to be service dogs. Please come and leave your thoughts and suggestions.
