The first slide is a stare down between that blue parakeet and Pinto at petamart, the bird was so interested in him it was funny.
The second is a clip of Pinto doing a nice heel in his dog shoes. I can tell he hates wearing them bc usually his tail wags 24/7, but not while wearing these things!

Hi everyone. My name is Nikki and yes, this is my service dog, pinto. Many people see me, and if they aren't obsessed with petting my dog, are skeptical as to my dogs purpose. I get it, I might look physically capable, and I am. However I was born with brain trauma due to heavy usage of drugs and alcohol. I was diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome when a toddler and had to have early interventention to ease some of my intense sensory reactions. I have came close to death quite a few times due to withdrawals, and a severe eating disorder all before I was 2. My grandmother took many precautions to keep me alive and well, I owe her a huge part of my life. While I have conquered many battles of my FAS I still suffer from it everyday with severe social anxiety, and sensory processing difficulties and various other mental health issues. This dog is trained to recognize my anxious behaviors and provide pressure to specific parts of my body to slow my heart rate. He has already changed my life, and while I don't look outwardly disabled I battle with other kinds of health issues. If you are following me and aren't apart of the service dog community I hope this message is understood and educational.
P.s. please don't drink or do drugs while pregnant!!! .

I remember a time when Daisy was terrified of water. When we first moved into the farmhouse she wouldn't get within a yard of the ponds. Oh, how time changes things... she's not swimming yet, but it's a small step!

Summer smells and wagging tails!

Repost from my @uncustomaryhousewife blog page. No wonder I oversleep most mornings; this is what happens when I turn on the bedside lamp and say, "okay, time to get up!"

Baileys tucked herself in between my feet and the sofa while I was watching the tv. She then decided that it's her comfy spot and flipped over to sleep like this.
