Well we had made the decision to return to Nosework with Brooke tonight. She was so bummed to be left behind when I took Faith the last couple of Tuesdays. She's been doing so well physically that we decided to go with the quality of her life to guide us, rather than just fear. She did great! Did not miss a step! And the instructor (whose own Lab passed away from the same disease) was so pleased. She definitely has a soft spot for Miss Brookie. We tested all the dogs on odor only tonight - usually it is paired with the food, to help them make the association. The instructor thought they were ready for this little test to see if they understood they were to search for the odor, and I am proud and happy to say both Faith and Brooke found it, and rather quickly! My DH and I had such big smiles on our faces! Brooke didn't want to leave the search area at all, LOL. I don't know how much longer she has but she is living her best life (within reason) so it makes all of us happy.
