Tango and I just returned from the Delta certification test — and we passed! Now we can begin to pursue our goal of helping kids improve their reading skills. We want to get involved in the R.E.A.D. program and begin visiting schools to help kids with reading difficulties.
Tango couldn’t have been better! I was a little nervous about a couple portions of the test. It’s funny – the parts that I was worried about didn’t phase Tango at all! And the parts that I didn’t worry about gave him a little trouble…go figure!
I enjoy working toward a goal with the dogs. It keeps me on a predictable training schedule, as well as concrete goals to work on. I get lazy sometimes and tend to procrastinate — setting goals encourages me to keep working. And the time spent with Tango, and reaching our goals, is the reward!
After we passed the certification, I gave Tango some really delicious salmon dog treats, and I ate a handful of Cadbury Milk Chocolate candy coated easter eggs! Yummy!
