Let me introduce you to Thad. If you live in the area, you may have seen him around town. He is actually a service dog for my father-in-law and works as his eyes as they walk around town. While in his working harness, he takes his job seriously. It's amazing to watch him in public places. At a busy restaraunt he knows to curl up into a small ball under the table and wait. No begging, no barking. He just waits. When not on duty, he is a playful puppy that loves the kids.
