Well our first week has gone in a flash.
We have both enjoyed having Orla here with us. She is a delight to have and to work with.
We now rise early so we can take her for her first walk of the day. It is very pleasing to see Orla greet Annette first thing in the morning and sit with her while she has her breakfast.
We were hoping that having an assistance dog would get Annette out to meet people. Already, Annette has had a positive meeting. She sat on a seat at the supermarket with Orla whilst I did some shopping and an elderly gentleman came up to comment on the fact that he knew all about assistance dogs.
Our grandchildren love Orla and enjoy her company in our large yard.
Will write more later.
