Rooney, the service puppy, I have been training for two years, has just entered advanced training, which means that sometime during the next 12 months, he will become a full-fledged service dog. A while ago, I think when I attended CAPR's last graduation, I decided that I would make some kind of book to pass on to Rooney's new owner. Recently, I decided it would be a book of photographs and poems. This month, I'm going to try to write thirty poems about Rooney. They probably won't be very good or polished (today's definitely isn't) but I'm going to do my best.
