One week to go, now - our Area Coordinator, Roy, is picking up Duchess on Thursday and returning her to campus for her formal training. THIS is the hard part. Now, everything that has come before this seems so easy! Duchess has a wonderful, playful spirit and a quick mind. I will always remember her patience and gentleness while recuperating from her medical procedures and while learning new commands. She always tried to do her best for me - and she did.
