Beckon (aka Colonel Underpants) has taken on a new role. He is now DH's service dog. He signals Brad when he has been sitting for too long and needs to walk. In public places, he walks at heel with Brad, and when people approach, he places himself between Brad and the stranger. He exhibits vigilance in crowds and at outings, protecting Brad's six (as in "check your six, i.e. rear area). For someone with a TBI and PTSD, this is invaluable. DH will be able to out among people more -- he has tended to be reclusive, and he knows that isn't good for his mental or physical health. It's amazing how he changes completely when wearing his vest. Since Brad's injury, he's become the house watchdog. He sleeps downstairs in the foyer in front of the door, guarding. I'm so proud of him. And yes, Penny is still Brad's emotional support dog. Now, depending on his needs at the time, he has flexibility. God bless this amazing breed!!
