More Career Options

This month's report brings news that Aiobe has been branching out in her training. She rotated through the February class without making a match and is continuing in advanced training, but is now doing soundwork. She's been learning to nudge her handler with her nose to get his attention, as well as locating and finding specific sounds. Her report says that she is doing well.

Leif would like to point out that the accompanying picture is not Aiobe's ear. It is Leif's ear, and is for illustrative purposes only. He would also like to point out that his ear bears only a superficial resemblance to Aiobe's ear. His ear is shorter and rounder.

Leif would also like you to admire his other excellent attributes. Here is his nose. His nose is also good at nudging people, but he is a self-taught nudger.

I hope that everyone is having a good March.

Wow! Another hearing dog! Aiobe's sister, Angelina, graduated yesterday as a hearing dog. She will be living in New York state. Amy at CCI says Aiobe is doing well in her sound work and is very much like her sister. Mama Niobe is so proud. By the way Niobe gave birth to Aiobe's 9 half brothers and sisters on March 10th. They will be the "N" Litter. Go Aiobe!!!!

Go Niobe!
Congratulations to the momma dog, and thanks for keeping tabs on Aiobe for me. I'm glad to hear she's following in her sister's footsteps.
