Wilara - Change Of Career

Well yesterday we got that "dreaded" phone call from CCI that Wilara was being released. She was still not able to overcome the issues on her last progress report and so she decided to come home. We are going to keep her which will be nice and it helps fill the void left from when we had to put down one of my sister's Shelties on Monday night.

We are happy to have Wila back home with us and are planning on having her tested and become a Therapy Dog and get her certified as a Canine Good Citizen. I have to get in touch with Stacey, her trainer, to get a list of commands that she has learned so that we can keep on top of everything and make sure she practices! At work last night she was showing off for everyone and pushing drawers and cabinets closed. All the other dogs at the vets have nothing on her!! She really impressed people.

Hopefully she will be a good influence on Nuri and get her to settle down enough to focus on her commands. Maybe watching Wilara perform them will help her to understand them. Here's to hoping!! Wilara on the ride home hanging out in the back seat. Nuri likes the floor better so she was happy to let Wilara have the bench seat!

Wila hanging out at home, loving sitting outside on the deck and hanging with the other pups!


  1. I'm sorry to hear one of your sister's shelties had to be put down! Shelties are "my breed" I guess you could say /grin/ I've had one almost my entire life! Have fun with Wilara's advanced commands!

  2. Disappointing! Oh well, you must be kind of glad to have her back......:)
    Hopefully she will make it as a great therapy dog!

  3. I left you an award on my blog if you would like it!
