Chuck Update

Photo by Paul Dols
Chuck, the service dog I raised prior to Fiona, is doing well!  I didn't share it here, but there was a possibility he was going to be career changed from his  life as a mobility dog.  Since he was a puppy Chuck would sometimes leak when resting.  It worsened as he grew and he was put on Proin which seemed to manage it well.  We were up front about Chuck's daily medicine and because of the cheapness of it he was matched a mobility dog.  Things were going fabulous until a few months ago when Chuck's leakiness reappeared and increasing his Proin did not help.

Miraculously several donors chipped in and Chuck had a surgery that had a chance of fixing the problem.  Thankfully the surgery worked and Chuck is eagerly back hard at work!

A link to a nice article is here.

That's so cool! Is he black though? I always thought he was chocolate.

They even mentioned you!

My seeing eye puppy that I raised was in an article too, but I lost it :(

Yeah, Chuck is chocolate :) And the foster and trainer living part wasn't quite true as technically I was both so he never moved. I'm just glad he didn't have to be retired at 2yrs! His momma just loves him.

I always wondered how they exercise assistance dogs when they live alone. I like the idea of volunteer walkers. I would so do that if I knew someone with an assistance dog who needed help. :)

I'm so glad he was able to have the surgery and that he made a full recovery! That is so awesome. :) Thanks for sharing the story with us. You did such a fantastic job with Chuck!
