Willow is good at jumping up onto rocks & things then obeying the "stay" command until I've finish pointing that little box thing in her direction.
From a walk today.
Made my bed..tidied up my room, then this old girl turns up..

One of us is a law breaker...
Off to the Courthouse...
An eleven year old rescue Koolie (that description fits my girl) saves owners life in WA town. This happened back in May.
I've told the story before but it bears repeating:
Min the Wonderdog, a few months after we rescued her, alerted us to the house being on fire and saved our lives.
Although we had paid for covers over the halogen downlights they were not installed and the pink batts caught fire.
This is Jessie.
Jessie lives in NSW.
Jessie is working from home right now.
Willow has been coming with me whenever I drop into the local MenShed and she was considered a virtual member down there & a lot of the old blokes there enjoyed seeing her. Early last year I posted a pic of the big poster they created with a lot of the active MenShed members on it & on which Willow was included.
In January I was informed that, because of changes to the MenShed's insurance policy, dogs were no longer allowed there. Then they worked out that if I got a doctor to provide a letter declaring Willow to be a companion dog and beneficial/essential to my mental health then we would be covered with the insurer.
When I was seeing my doctor on Tuesday I asked him about doing such a thing & he agreed to write that letter. I got out of the doc's in time to drop in at the MenShed for morning smoko and she was very pleased to not have to stay in the ute & be able to cruise around the place meeting all her friends again. The managers were happy with the letter & quite a few of the members were pleased to be able to pat her again & sneak her bits of biccy & cake.
Here she is on her first time being an official 'companion dog'.
That little bit of paper is actually an "access all areas" pass Dave, it pretty well gives Willow the same access provisions as Guide dogs from my understanding.
Good stuff, Dave. Don't you need another certificate to get a female into a Men's Shed too?
I gave up taking my dogs to the Tuesday meetings of old blokes with their toys down by the lake because Ruben in particular kept disgracing himself by chasing balls into the water and then waiting until he was back among us to shake the water off. Not popular.
Good onya Dave and your Doctor for doing that.
Dogs area an amazing companion and most people enjoy giving a dog a good pat...
And fuck insurance companies
