Notre Fidele Ami

     We're back home and returning to our routine.  Patriot did well on the trip, he's an excellent traveler and very curious about new things.

     Special thanks to Jeld-Wen Corporation in Wedowee, Alabama for making it possible to expose Patriot to many new experiences. Unlike McDonald's, Jeld-Wen was very welcoming.  We enjoyed the tour of the plant and meeting everyone.  Thanks to Jim and Andrew Hall for taking us out on the boat, It didn't take long for Patriot to get his sea legs.

Patriot's first boat ride

Comfortable enough to sleep on the moving boat

     The boat ride and visit to the museum was icing on the cake!  Thank you Jeld-Wen for acknowledging the important service of these professionally trained guide dogs.

Back to talking about icing on the cake, Ms. Lois of "Sweet Thangs Bakery" hospitality was heartwarming.  Patriot loved the attention and the royal treatment he received!!

We stayed on a 27 acre wooded property, Patriot thought he was a bloodhound that had died and gone to heaven.  He did well walking through the woods, on gravel roads and boat docks, his senses were on overload.  While there he experienced a rather large thunder storm, he did excellent, the hunters in the area did not seem to have any effect on him...."Good dog"....pat pat

Got up close and personal with "Yellow Cat" a 5 week old kitten, wish we would have had more time to give to this exposure. He seems to adjust well to new things, and that is a "GOOD" thing!

Patriot enjoyed the time spent with two of his favorite people.

Bri and Patriot

Em and Patriot
They received his undivided attention, he's great with the kids..."GOOD DOG"....pat pat

  1. Hi Y'all!

    Looks like lots of fun, Patriot.

    Hope you're managing to stay cool.

    You ought to write a letter to the "powers that be" about the laws regarding service dogs. Tell them they need to educate their stores and managers.

    Y'all come by now,
