Dave and I sneaked off for a couple of days with Bertie ahead of a holiday trip with Lou, how much we manage to get her out and about will depend on how well the' Bertie factor' works! We have found that although Bertie is just a puppy he has a very special effect on Lou which seems to help her cope with things a little better. I have always believed that she would benefit from an assistance dog but the way life works currently it wouldn't be possible for her to have one, Bertie seems to be the next best thing. He is so patient with her and has been really good when we put him on 2 leads in order for her to 'walk' him so I am hopeful we could see small but significant progress in the future.
Its a dogs life:
Hopefully I will be back again soon!
