From early on, I had Dawg learning to wear a harness and carry doggie-backpacks. When he first came to live with us I could still walk a bit using crutches or a walker, but I tended to fall down a lot. Dawg figured out fairly quickly that if he stood still, I could use him as a leverage point to get back on my feet.
That’s an exceptionally smart service animal I’ve got there. I wonder if he thinks he’s stuck with an exceptionally clumsy human?
